Violent Femmes (1983)[edit]

  • When I'm out walking, I strut my stuff,
    Yeah, and I'm so strung out.
    I'm high as a kite, I just might
    Stop to check you out.

    Let me go on
    Like I blister in the sun;
    Let me go on,
    Big hands, I know you're the one.

  • You can all just kiss off into the air;
    Behind my back, I can see them stare.
    They'll hurt me bad, but I won't mind.
    They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
    Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
    • Kiss Off
  • Day after day,
    I will walk and I will play.
    But the day after today,
    I will stop and I will start.

    Why can't I get just one kiss?
    Why can't I get just one kiss?

  • Why can't I get just one fuck?
    Why can't I get just one fuck?
    I guess it's got something to do with luck,
    But I waited my whole life for just one...

    Day after day
    I get angry and I will say
    That the day is in my sight
    When I take a bow and say goodnight.

    • Add It Up
  • Words to memorize, words hypnotize,
    Words make my mouth exercise.
    Words all fail the magic prize;
    Nothing I can say when I'm in your thighs.
    • Add It Up
