Con Funk Shun – Electric Lady lyrics

She was a perfect woman
The perfect lover
The fulfillment of my dreams
She made me love her
Like I loved no other
Let me tell you what I mean

You see when I met her
I couldn't forget her
She stood out from the rest
She drove me crazy
This foxy lady
She put me through the test

I wanted to please her
And just not tease her
But I didn't know what to do
Who she was and where she came from
That nobody knew

Then one night
I was holding her tight
And burning with desire
Then I went behind to touch her back
And discovered there were wires

Electric lady, you are the one
The one I run to when I come undone
Electric lady, why'd you take my soul
Electric lady, don't you be so cold

She knew all the ways to drive me wild
A connoisseur of passion
I should've known there
Was something strange
About the power of her attraction

Here I felt I loved her true
Every time that we kissed
But now I think our love might be
The work of some scientist

I always thought she had a mighty grip
When she would squeeze me in the night
I never knew any other girl
Who could hold onto me so tight

When we'd get down, her eyes lit up
I thought it was a love reaction
It was always weird to hear three beeps
At the height of my satisfaction

[Repeat CHORUS 2x]

I never thought that this would happen
Except in a future world
But here I am, in love with my baby
And she might be a computer girl

The whole thing was through
I was getting kind of weak
My need for her was strong
I kept thinking 'bout
Those wires hanging out
But I was hoping I was wrong

So I called her up and I took her out
And I asked her to explain
And when she showed me her microchips
I thought I was insane

But then I saw a teardrop fall
From the corner of her eye
And then I knew her love was true
Because sex machines don't cry

[Repeat CHORUS 4x to fade]
