Album: Peepshow (1988)
Charted: 16 53
  • Creeping up the backstairs
    Slinking into dark stalls
    Shapeless and slumped in bathchairs
    Furtive eyes peep out of holes
    She has many guises
    Shell do what you want her to
    Playing dead and sweet submission
    Cracks the whip deadpan on cue
    Peek-a-boo peek-a-boo
    Peek-a-boo peek-a-boo

    Reeking like a pigsty
    Peeling back and gagging free
    Flaccid ego in your hand
    Chokes on dry tears, can you understand?
    Shes jeering at the shadows
    Sneering behind a smile
    Lunge and thrust to pout and pucker
    Into the face of the beguiled

    Peek-a-boo peek-a-boo
    Golly jeepers
    Where'd you get those peepers?
    Peepshow, creepshow
    Where did you get those eyes?

    Strobe lights pump and flicker
    Dry lips crack out for more
    Come bite on this rag doll, baby!
    That's right, now hit the floor
    They're sneaking out the back door
    She gets up from all fours
    Rhinestone fools and silver dollars
    Curdle into bitter tears

    Peek-a-boo peek-a-boo
    Golly jeepers
    Where'd you get those peepers?
    Peepshow, creepshow
    Where did you get those eyes?
