  • She likes wearin' lipstick, she likes French cuisine
    But she won't let me use my passion unless it's in a limousine

    She got me under pressure,
    She got me under pressure

    She likes the art museum, she don't like Pavlov's dog
    She fun at the mind museum, she likes it in a London fog
    She don't like other women, she likes whips and chains
    She likes cocaine and filppin' out with great Danes
    She's about all I can handle, it's too much for my brain

    It's got me under pressure
    It's got me under pressure

    I'm gonna give her a message
    Here's what I'm gonna say
    "It's all over"
    She might get out a nightstick
    And hurt me real real bad
    By the roadside in a ditch

    It's got me under pressure
    It's got me under pressure

    It's got me under pressure
    It's got me under pressure Writer/s: BILLY GIBBONS, DUSTY HILL, FRANK BEARD

  • Jim Cushing from Baltimore Maryland I have always loved ZZ Top never did get to see them. I did see video of them crying at SRV's funeral in 1989. I wonder if anyone was there to cry at Dusty' s funeral
