Lyrics
I just wanted to be so happy girl
Cause I want you baby I do want you baby
Got to believe the doctor girl
He told me yesterday (yes he did)
Said you don't need the pharmacology
Cos I want you baby I do want you baby

Don't need the cardiology
To have a change of heart
You gotta new and dangerous condition boy
He said you know you're gonna lose your own volition boy
Philosophy now

Oh for a girl (the bomb baby)
Fix me a world (the blue shoes)
Oh for it stirred or it shaken
To get to know you

Pull me through (the bomb baby)
What can I do? (the blue shoes)
Oh now I know I'm mistaken
To get to love you

Could you get me a new philosophy
Cause I want you baby I do want you baby
I got see a prophet girl
Before the day is out (yes I do)
And I don't want apothecary girl
Cause I want you baby I do want you baby

I got to see the Avatar
To talk the world away
You gotta a new and dangerous condition boy
He said you know you're gonna lose your own volition boy
Philosophy now

Oh for a girl (the bomb baby)
Fix me a world (the blue shoes)
Oh for it stirred or it shaken
To get to know you

Pull me through (the bomb baby)
What can I do? (the blue shoes)
Oh now I know I'm mistaken
To get to love you

Cause I want you baby I do want you baby
Cause I want you baby I do want you baby
I just want it to be so happy girl
Cause I want you baby I do want you baby

Got to believe the doctor girl
He told me yesterday (yes he did)
Said you don't need the pharmacology
Cos I want you baby I do want you baby

Don't need the cardiology
To have a change of heart
You gotta new and dangerous condition boy
He said you know you're gonna lose your own volition boy
Philosophy now

Oh for a girl (the bomb baby)
Fix me a world (the blue shoes)
Oh for it stirred or it shaken
To get to know you

Pull me through (the bomb baby)
What can I do? (the blue shoes)
Oh now I know I'm mistaken
To get to love you
