Lyrics

I woke up this morning and I thought what am I doing
Yeah what am I doing here
I woke up this morning and I thought what am I doing
Yeah what am I doing here
Well my brother, he starts raging!
Watch him rising! See him howling!
And he sucked her and he sucked her and he sucked her dry
And he bit at me and bit at me and said goodbye
Up on the twenty-ninth floor! Up on the twenty-ninth floor!
Aoooooow! Aoooooow!

Well, I was lying there with just my brother
We could hear someone rattling the locks
I was lying there with just my brother
He said do you think that might be the cops?
And we sucked her and we sucked her and we sucked her dry
And we sucked her and we sucked her and we sucked her dry
I was Mickey Mouse! He was the big bad wolf!

Next thing you know I’m looking down below
See a lupine child with her hair on fire
Little burning girl! She’s looking up at me!
Running to the elevator! Getting in the elevator!
Sixth floor, seventh floor, eighth floor, nine
Come on baby, gonna blow my mind!
Oooooooow!

Well, I woke up this morning and he was gone
There were posters in the airports and the stations
We took shelter
We took shelter
Under her body
Under her body
We sucked her and we sucked her and we sucked her dry
We sucked her and we sucked her and we shaved her dry
He kissed me and kissed me and said goodbye
He kissed me and kissed me and said goodbye
Alright!

Well, no time at all, she’s walking down the hall
She’s a bat-faced girl with dynamite curls
Ringing the bell-bell, banging on the door
Walking down the travelator! Walking down the travelator!
Twenny-two twenny-four twenny-six twenny-nine
Come on baby and blow my mind!
Ooooooow! Oooooooooooow! Yeah!
