  • You talk too much, never saying what's on your mind,
    It's written on your face, I lead the world you hide behind.
    I know what you want, I can see what you're looking for,
    I know what you want from me,
    An' I'm gonna give you more.

    I'm gonna slide it in right to the top,
    Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
    Slide it in, right to the top,
    I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in, slide it, in baby.

    Sometimes you seem just like a stranger to me,
    But, all the games you play make it so easy to see.
    You're looking for love, tho' you try to deny,
    The things you put me through
    Tell me what I've got to do to you.
    I'm gonna slide it in, right to the top,
    Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
    Slide it in, right to the top,
    I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in.

    You talk too much, always treating me so unkind,
    I know what I've got to do, to get me some peace of mind.

    I'm gonna slide it in, right to the top,
    Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
    Slide it in, right to the top,
    I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in,
    Slide it in, right to the top.
    Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
    Slide it in, right to the top,
    I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in, slide it, slide it in, slide it in, right to the top, baby. Writer/s: DAVID COVERDALE

  • Laurent from Manama, BahrainThe comments from Alexander Baron actually do not state any facts directly related to the song and mainly are a reflection of his opinion. Coverdale has always been known for in tongue-in-cheek sexy (sexists sometimes) lyrics. Comparing lyrics as written in Deep Purple to those of Whitesnake is silly. Deep Purple was not Coverdale band. Proof: he sumitted 7 different set of lyrics for the song "Burn" for them to be accepted by the band (i.e. Blackmore). Whitesnake was and is his band. He writes and does what he wants. You either get his "humour" or you don't.
    Songfacts: "Slide It In" (the album) has two different version. The European version was recorded with the line-up Coverdale, Galley, Moody, Lord, Powell and Hodgkinson. This line-up toured on the "Saints & Sinners Tour" and recorded the original version of "Slide It In". When Sykes joined the band to replace Moody, and Murray re-joined on bass, Geffen's John Kalodner ordered that the album be remixed for the US market. Murray re-recorded all bass parts whilst Sykes beefed up the overall sound without being predominantly featured though. The US version is punchier.
