How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb


Original Of The Species lyrics

Baby slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it

Some things you shouldn't get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celebrity
Some people got way too much confidence baby, baby

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it, no
Oh no, oh no no no
(Here's your father)

Didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit
Didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit, didit
Sugar come on, show your soul
You've been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it (no)
Everywhere you go you show your body, oh my my

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cos I want you some more
I want you some more, I want you some more

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
