  • Like his dad you know that he's had
    Animal nitrate in mind
    Oh in your council home he jumped on your bones
    Now you're taking it time after time

    Oh, what turns you on, oh?
    Now he has gone
    Oh, what turns you on, oh?
    Now your animal's gone

    Well he said he'd show you his bed
    And the delights of the chemical smile
    So in your broken home he broke all your bones
    Now you're taking it time after time

    Oh, what turns you on, oh?
    Now he has gone
    Oh, what turns you on, oh?
    Now your animal's gone

    What does it take to turn you on, oh?
    Now he has gone
    Now you're over twenty-one, oh
    Now your animal's gone

    Animal, he was animal, an animal, oh
    Animal, he was animal, an animal, oh
    Animal, animal, oh
    He's just an animal, an animal oh
    Animal, he was animal
    He's just an animal, an animal oh
    Animal, he was animal
    He's just an animal, an animal oh Writer/s: Brett Anderson, Bernard Butler

  • Chris from Germany Wow this song is awesome. Strange enough that I was 5 years old when I saw this video on MTV. Thank you mummy and daddy. They were quite open and let me watch MTV with them. This song and video were so strange that even after 22 years I had the refrain and the appearance of the singer BRETT ANDERSON in my mind. As a kindergarten child, as a pupil, as a teenager, as a student and as a young professional.
    I think 1993 and ANIMAL NITRATE was very important for the brit pop movement.
