She came home last night rotten rolling drunk
She talk no sense but she sound good
So she think So I reached over and said,
"Hello, is there some planet you'd care to go"
And she said "Venus on the rocks"

She got a mean streak
Black Mamba don't compete
She got a mean streak
Temptation bitter sweet

She drives me crazy gets inside my brain
She spend my money down a drain
So I roll over for my reward
How much can I afford
And she says
"Just a little more"

I can't take this no more
I tried so hard but I can't get thro' the door
Because one smile from those eyes
And I stand there paralyzed
And she says
"Beg for more get down sucka you know what I like"
Oh hang on

She got a mean streak
Black Mamba don't compete
She got a mean streak
Temptation bitter sweet
