Album: Control (1986)
Charted: 24 14
  • You might think I'm crazy, but I'm serious
    It's better you know now
    What I thought was happiness was only part-time bliss
    You can take a bow
    It was all just one big night out on the town
    Riding in your limousine
    We turned right and I say wrong which brings us to a stop
    As the light is changing

    Oh my meters running so I got to go now
    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh
    It's the principle of pleasure Oh oh
    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh oh

    It's true you want to build your life of guarantees
    Hey take a ride in a big yellow taxi
    I'm not here to feed your insecurities
    I wanted you to love me
    This has become an all too familiar scene
    It's not the first time I paid the fare
    Where'd you get the idea of material possession?
    Thank you for the ride nowhere

    And oh my meters running so I've really got to go
    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh oh oh

    It's the principle of pleasure ohhh
    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh oh oh

    I know - what you mean to me
    Baby this is nowhere
    You know - what became between you and me
    human differential

    It's the principle of pleasure
    Oh ohhhh oh ohhhh
    It's the pleasure principle - principle
    Oh oh oh oh

    You might say that I'm no good
    I wouldn't trust your looks baby if I could
    I got so many things I wanna do
    before I'm through

    Hey
    It's the pleasure principle
    It's the pleasure principle
    Baby you can't hold me down
    Baby you can't hold me down
    After all the lovin' we've been through
    And after all you've put me through
    Yeah yeah, hey yeah

    Love me, hey yeah, Love me yeah
    Hoo hoo hoo hoo
    It's the pleasure principle of love
    yeah,yeah Writer/s: MONTE S MOIR
