I was 21, naive, not cynical, I tried to please
Her wit, her speech, her repartee impressed me almost instantly

She went all the way
All the way (down)

She showed me sex a hundred ways and how she pimped him, how she paid him
And all the daughters, all the sons, all were welcome, all would come
Yeah

We went all the way
All the way (down)

I was being Mr. Cool, just a snotty little fool, like kids are now
I dreamed of reaching greater heights, I raved about it every night, and talked

She's there when I close my eyes

How the years rush on by, birthdays, kids and suicides
But still I play the fool and strut, still you're a slut

Hey baby

All the way...
Down, down, down

You give me back my time up now, I can see it if I close my eyes
Was every minute just a waste? Was every hour a foolish chase?

No, I don't believe you slipped all the way...
