  • I, I'm driving black on black
    Just got my license back
    I got this feeling in my veins that this train is coming off the track
    I'll ask polite if the devil needs a ride
    Because the angel on my right ain't hanging out with me tonight
    I'm driving past your house while you were sneaking out
    I got the car door opened up so you can jump in on the run
    Your mom don't even know that you were missing
    She'd be pissed if she could see the parts of you I've been kissing
    Screamin'

    No, we're never gonna quit
    Ain't nothing wrong with it
    Just acting like we're animals
    No, no matter where we go
    'Cause everybody knows
    We're just a couple of animals

    So come on baby, get in
    Get in, just get in
    Check out the trouble we're in

    You're beside me on the seat
    Got your hand between my knees
    And you control how fast we go by just how hard you wanna squeeze
    It's hard to steer when you're breathing in my ear
    But I got both hands on the wheel while you got both hands on my gears
    By now, no doubt we're heading south
    I guess nobody taught her not to speak with a full mouth
    'Cause this was it, like flicking on a switch
    It felt so good I almost drove into the ditch
    I'm screamin'

    No, we're never gonna quit
    Ain't nothing wrong with it
    Just acting like we're animals
    No, no matter where we go
    'Cause everybody knows
    We're just a couple of animals

    So come on baby, get in
    Get in, just get in
    Look at the trouble we're in

    We were parked out by the tracks
    We're sitting in the back
    And we just started getting busy
    When she whispered, "what was that"
    The wind, I think 'cause no one else knows where we are
    And that was when she started screamin',
    "That's my dad outside the car"
    Oh please, the keys, they're not in the ignition
    Must have wound up on the floor while
    We were switching our positions
    I guess they knew that she was missing
    As I tried to tell her dad it was her mouth that I was kissing
    Screamin'

    No, we're never gonna quit
    Ain't nothing wrong with it
    Just acting like we're animals
    No, no matter where we go
    'Cause everybody knows
    We're just a couple of animals

    So come on baby, get in
    We're just a couple of animals
    Get in, just get in
    Ain't nothing wrong with it
    Check out the trouble we're in
    We're just a couple animals
    Get in, just get in
