Something Wild

from by Andrew Shearer

lyrics

Once bitten she's not twice as shy
Got to close the windows to keep in her sighs
Her fingers running through tigers' fur
She loves to mix danger with her pleasure

She doesn't want to be tied down
She just loves to be chained and bound
A fondness for handcuffs
When we make love
But when she asks me to put her on her leash
I still know she'll always be out of reach

And she's oh so guilty free
(Something Wild)
Unfaithful with impunity
(Something Wild)
I can't believe she's such a good liar
So I just keep walking blindfold on this high wire

Tempting me into doing wrong
Will I be sorry when she's gone?
My head's in turmoil
My blood's on the boil
The touch of her skin, throw caution to the wind
Ooooh let the sin begin

Such good times will be hard to forget
Or will I just be left with regret?
I turn a blind eye to all her debts
Will she just drain me 'till I've nothing left?

If only I could trust her for a while
(Something Wild)
But give her an inch and she'll just take a mile
(Something Wild)
My common sense lost in exile
My mixed emotions hard to reconcile

No need to tell me
I'm playing with fire
She's so hot
Full of desire
She knows no shame
And thinks it's all a game
It should have been a clue
When she said her name was Lulu

There's a darkness in her smile
(Something Wild)
"Handle with care", she's so volatile
(Something Wild)
Sex just wrecked the thermopile
She's something wild

She's not the kind of girl you'll walk up the aisle
(Something Wild)
I'm just another heart in her stockpile
(Something Wild)
I try to resist but it's so futile
She's something wild

And now she's getting me oh so riled
(Something Wild)
With her tears of expensive crocodile
(Something Wild)
All good in me is just being defiled
She's something wild
