The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

Album: Suck It And See (2011)
  • Just when things are getting complicated in the eye of the storm
    She flicks a red-hot revelation off the tip of her tongue
    It does a dozen somersaults and it leaves you supercharged
    Makes me wanna blow her candles out just to see if you glow in the dark


    Home sweet home, home sweet home, home sweet booby-trap
    I took the batteries out my mysticism and put 'em in my thinking cap
    She's got a telescopic hallelujah hanging up on the wall
    For when it gets too complicated in the eye of the storm


    Oh, and in a hellcat spangled cavern
    When your judgment's on the run
    And you're acting like a stranger
    'Cause you thought it looked like fun

    Well did you ever get the feeling
    Did you think she set the fall
    Her steady hands may well have done the devil's pedicure
    What you waiting for to sing another fuckin'
