Verse 1: Fine art never moved my soul
	 No vintage wine and designer clothes

	 The drama stage and the high brow prose
Verse 3: And you keep saying what you got
	 You keep saying what you got

Chorus 1: A different kind of tinsel decorates my tree
          A thousand Cheshire cats grin inside of me
Chorus 2: The brightest fireworks are lighting up my sky
	  The cage is open but she's no desire to fly
