Taffy

My friendís got a bruise on his leg, a bruise on his leg
Every time you speak.
My friendís got a bruise on his leg,
Where I press my knee
Every time you speak.

[Chorus]
Actually, the bottom line,
You tell the truth sometimes.
Sometimes you tell the truth
Like youíre pulling taffy.

My friendís got a bruise on his arm, a bruise on his arm
Every time you speak.
My friendís got a bruise on his arm,
Where I shove my elbow
Every time you speak.

[Chorus]

My friendís got a bruise on his ribs where I poke my finger
Every time you speak.
My friendís got a bruise on his ribs,
His rib cage is now numb
Every time you speak.

[Chorus]


here, in lisa's own words, the meaning of this song:

"It's about a gesture; about sitting next to a friend and elbowing them in the side when you're talking to another person who's totally lying to you. It's about that bruise you get when your friend's nudging you."
