Aggravated - spare for days,
Stroll downtown the red light place,
Jump up bubble up - what in store,
Love is the drug and I need to score,

Showing out, showing out, hit and run,
Boy meets girl and the beat goes on,
Stitched up tight, can't shake free,
Love is the drug, got a hook on me,

Oh oh catch that buzz,
Love is the drug that I thinking of,
Yeah, can you see?
Love is the drug for me,

ain't no big thing,
To wait for the bell to ring,
Ain't no big thing,
The toll of the bell,

Late that night I park my car,
Stake my place in the singles bar,
Face to face, toe to toe,
Heart to heart as we hit the floor,

Lumber up, limbo down,
The locked embrace, the stumble round,
I say go, he say yes,
Dim the lights, you can guess the rest,

Yeah, catch that buzz,
Love is the drug that I thinking of,
Yeah, can you see?
Love is the drug for me,

ain't no big thing,
To wait for the bell to ring,
Ain't no big thing,
The toll of the bell,


Aggravated - spare for days,
Stroll downtown the red light place,
Jump up bubble up - what in store,
Love is the drug and I need to score,

Showing out, showing out, hit and run,
Boy meets girl and the beat goes on,
Stitched up tight, can shake free,
Love is the drug, got a hook on me,

Oh oh catch that buzz,
Love is the drug that I thinking of,
Oh oh, can you see?
Love is the drug for me,

Yeah, catch that buzz,
Love is the drug that I thinking of,
Oh oh, can you see?
Love is the drug for me,

Oh oh catch that buzz,
Love is the drug that I thinking of,
Yeah, can you see?
Love is the drug for me, Oh,

ain't no big thing,
To wait for the bell to ring,
Ain't no big thing,
The toll of the bell,

Yeah, catch that buzz,
Love is the drug that I thinking of,
Oh yeah, can you see?
Love is the drug for me,

Gota get that buzz/drug,
Give it to me, baby, (?)
Got to have it.
