Sweet as the smell of success
Her body's warm and wet
She gets me through this god awful loneliness
A natural high butterfly Oh I,
I need, need, need her

Just like a willow tree
A breath of spring you see
And oh boy you don't know what she do to me
She makes me sweat and forget who I am
I need, need, need, need her

Well I was wondering how long this could go on, on and on
Well I thought I could never be surprised
But could it be that I bit my own tongue
