  • Lilac blowing through the warm summer air
    Hint of your perfume
    The smell of your hair
    Sun is setting and the crows all cry
    Electrical storm forming in the sky
    Got a hurt inside that I just gotta heal
    All I can do is feel, feel, feel
    Day is dying and the night is born
    Baby don't leave me so lovelorn

    A hungry dog howls through the trees
    It echoes long on the lilac breeze
    A blackbird sings a song so sad
    Girl, I want it bad
    Girl, I want it bad

    Birds do it, bees do it
    I wanna do it
    The only thing we need to do
    Is get down to it
    Please hear my plea
    Know it comes from the heart
    Baby, you and me got something to start

    A hungry dog howls through the trees
    It echoes long on the lilac breeze
    A blackbird sings a song so sad
    Girl, I want it bad
    Girl, I want it bad

    Why won't you hear me?
    I'm a desperate man
    Darling, don't fear me
    Just say we can

    Lilac blowing in the warm summer breeze
    Floating so soft with the cries in the trees
    Sun is setting and the day is dead
    How can I get it through your pretty little head

    A hungry dog howls through the trees
    It echoes long on the lilac breeze
    A blackbird sings a song so sad
    Girl, I want it bad
    Girl, I want it bad
    Girl, I want it bad Writer/s: MARK O. EVERETT
