lyrics

well it really isn’t such a bad day today
there’s still a little music in my head
but I grind to a halt like a mouth full of salt
and suddenly I’m full of dread, thinking

I’m so hungry!
I’m so thirsty!
gimme sugar!
gimme wine!
gimme passion
fame and fortune
mute my meddlin mind

oh give me a thrill
I can’t sit still
I already tried counting to ten
but it itches and tugs
like a bagful of bugs
baby when can I see you again?

I got a heart so hot in the summertime
and it yells like a rock and roll band
but I’m here in the city of brotherly love
I got nothing but time in my hand

I see a good lookin man with a cowboy walk
and a hand-in-the-cookie-jar grin
and I thought I was sitting on something soft
I’m sittin on needles and pins, singing

I’m so hungry!
I’m so thirsty!
gimme sugar!
gimme wine!
gimme passion
fame and fortune
mute my meddlin mind

oh give me a thrill
I can’t sit still
I already tried countin to ten
but it itches and tugs
like a bagful of bugs
baby when can I see you again?

open your shirt
I wanna look at your skin
open your mouth
I wanna climb on in
open your veins
I wanna go for a swim
open your heart
baby, when can I see you?

I’m so hungry!
I’m so thirsty!
gimme sugar!
gimme wine!
gimme passion
fame and fortune
mute my meddlin mind

oh give me a thrill
I already tried countin to ten
but it itches and tugs
baby when can I see you again?
