If I Had A Tail

Album: ...Like Clockwork (2013)
  • Gitchy, gitchy
    Ooh la la
    Da doo ron ron
    You won't get far

    I'm machine
    I'm obsolete
    In the land of the free
    Lobotomy

    I wanna suck, I wanna lick
    I want to cry and I want to spit
    Tears of pleasure
    Tears of pain
    They trickle down your face the same

    It's how you look
    Not how you feel
    A city of glass
    With no heart

    If I had a tail
    I'd own the night
    If I had a tail
    I'd swat the flies

    Yeah, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Yeah, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

    Gitchy, gitchy
    Ooh la la
    Da doo ron ron
    It won't get far

    Animals in
    The midnight zone
    When you own the world
    You're always home

    Get your hands dirty
    Roll up them sleeves
    Brainwashed or true believers?
    Buy flash cars
    Diamond rings
    Expensive holes to bury things

    I'm machine
    I'm obsolete
    In the land of the free
    Immortality

    If I had a tail
    I'd own the place
    If I had a tail
    I'd swat the flies

    Oh-oh-oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Oh-oh-oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

    See me dancing on the stars
    See me dance

    If I have a tail
    I will control the night
    If I have a tail
    I will control the night
    If I have a tail
    I will control the night Writer/s: Dean Anthony Fertita, Josh Homme, Joshua Michael Homme, Michael Jay Shuman, Troy Dean Van Leeuwen
