Wild Thing

  • Time can make more rubble out of dreams than anything
    In a quiet neighborhood where she's living without wings
    There's eyes behind the curtains and there's ears below the floor
    Cracks inside the ceiling and there's shadows at the door

    The boredom stirs a rage inside her soul
    A rage that reaches out and takes control
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing

    Nine days out alone
    Sleep in the dirt
    She walks back into town
    With blood stains on her shirt
    Everyone has questions
    But no one wants to know
    How far the anger in someone
    Can really make them go

    Her tangled hair and mud stains on her knees
    Bruised ribs and rips on the side of her jeans
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing

    Well I used to be a citizen in this town
    'Til my teeth turned gray and my hair fell out
    All the civil decent people, they don't want to know
    But a girl looking for trouble said she'd give me a go

    While everybody's sleeping in this town this night
    From the crooked clock tower to the borderline
    And night star static in the winter breeze
    She's lying in the moonlight with her hands between my knees

    She says it's all right
    Well, it's all right by me
    Well, it's all right by me

    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing
    Baby she's a wild thing Writer/s: CHARLES FINK
