Daryl Hall & John Oates – You Burn Me Up I'm A Cigarette lyrics

You burn me up Im a cigarette
You hold my hand I begin to sweat
You make me nervous
Ooh Im nervous
It must be real bad karma
For this to be my dharma
With you

You burn me up Im a cigarette
Life with you is a losers bet
You make me crazy
Ooh Im going crazy
Your therapeutic antics
Well they really make me frantic
With you

Strategic interaction irreducible fraction
Terminal inaction and a bitter hostile faction
Im getting anxious
Im franxious
Transactional diseases are the only thing that pleases

You burn me up Im a cigarette
Demanding my attention which youre not gonna get
What did the sage mean?
What had the sage seen?
Musical elation is my only consolation
Oh yeah

You burn me up Im about to ignite
When you tell me you love me I give up this fight
Im feeling put down my feelings shut down
I want rejuvenation from male emancipation

Strategic interaction terminal inaction
A bitter hostile faction irreducible fraction
Transactional diseases are the only thing that pleases
