  • Kangaroo
[from August 2 2002 debut performance]

I first saw you, you had on blue jeans
Your eyes couldn't hide anything
I saw you breathing

Oh I next saw you, you was at the party
Thought you was a queen, oh so flirty
I came against..

Didn't say excuse, knew what I was doing
We looked very fine as we left the party
Oh mmm

Like St. Joan doing a cruel jerk
Oh I want you like a kangaroo
I saw you breathing
