Stray hungry dog, stealing meat from a garbage can
He don't get what he want, he gets it when he can
City streets full of creeps, I'm knee deep in scum
I feel like Christ on the cross with a loaded gun

Kick me like a horse now honey
Bite me like a dog, yeah
Scratch me till I bleed now sugar
Don'tcha ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty
