I
Cobra comes up next to me.
Anywhere he goes, heís silently.                    
How do you take speaking so much?
How do you live without a loverís touch?
Dale always says itís easy  
Iím hooked on four like one, two, three
I got them moves, declared to me
You need to listen cuz I guarantee youíre for sure
 
Now I know Iíve been moviní too much
Iím gonna live for my hottieís touch
 
How do you take him speaking so much?
How do you live without a loverís touch?
 
Covered in charcoal, head to toe
Sticky, stick charcoal, I want you to know
How I long till I get these off
Theyíre so convenient but at such a cost
King I go out to plead
Sticky, sticky warmth, come and rush to me
I want to know, I want to see
           Thereís life for me
 
Oh how I long till I get these off
Theyíre so convenient but at such a cost.
 
II
I know somebody, yes, I know someone
Who loves to wait, loves to wait for the policeman to come.
I know somebody, yes, I know them well
And Iím aware of the thought they call ringing the bell
 
Four on the floor and four in the air
Iím drinkiní cold, cold lightning with the bugs in my hair
I knew a partner, yes, I knew his house (now)
 
I know somebody, yes, I know someone
Who likes to wait, likes to wait for the policeman to come.
 
I know somebody, yes, I know them well
And Iím aware of the thought they call ringing the bell
Four on the floor and four in the air
Iím drinkiní cold, cold lightning with the bugs in my hair
I knew a partner, yes, I knew his house (now)
 
I know somebody, yes, I know someone,
Who loves to wait, loves to wait for those policeman to come.
I know somebody, yes I know them well
And Iím aware of the thought they call ringing the bell.
Out on the floor and four in the air
Iím drinkiní cold, cold lightning with the buzz in my hair
I knew a partner, yes, I knew his house (now)
 
III
Why do my toes always feel so cold?
How come? How come? How come?
Whyís all the soap always burn like a rope?
How come? How come? How come?
When I see your reflection, it always frightens me
So strong that I can hardly speak.  
How come?
 
Mixed up potion, the summerís ocean
I feel Iím swimming in tannin lotion
Too many car chairs, and not enough leads
How come? How come? How come?
 
Thank you for all the sleep
So I know the sparkís aside
Stuff that keeps me clean
Stuff that helps me breathe
The lamps, the lights, the kerosene
Beautiful, two gardenias spring
How come?
 
Why does all the soap always burn like the rope?
How come? How come? How come?
Whyís all my toes always seem so cold?
How come? How come? How come?
