She had a face straight outta magazine God only knows but you'll never leave her Her balaclava is starting to chafe When she gets his gun he's begging, babe stay, stay, stay, stay, stay
I'll give him one more time We'll give you one more fight Said one more lie Will I know you
Now if you never shoot, you'll never know And if you never eat, you'll never grow You've got a pretty kinda dirty face When she's leaving your home she's begging you, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay
I'll give you one more time We'll give you one more fight Just said one more line There'll be a riot, 'cause I know you
Well, now that you've got your gun It's much harder now the police have come Now shoot him if it's what you're worth But if you just take off your mask To find out that everything's gone wrong, wrong, wrong
Now everybody's dead And they're driving past my old school And he's got his gun, he's got his suit on She says, babe, you look so cold, you look so cold, you look so cold You look so cold, you look so cold, you look so cold

Kathleen from MarylandThese lyrics are wrong. The bridge before the last verse is Well now that you've got your gun It’s much harder now the police have come And I'll shoot him if it's what you ask But if you just take off your mask You'd find out everything's gone wrong.
And she says, "Babe, you look so COOL. " Not cold.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
