You got the look of a howlin' wolf, I like it
The kind of eyes that could start a fire, yes I like it
A streetwise dynamo, I switch you on and I watch you go
A thrill to touch, you're so hot
I'm comin' for you ready or not

I'm gettin' ready
Livin' on the edge of a dream
Gettin' ready - I'm gettin' ready
Oh, switch on your lovin' machine

Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - I can't wait another day
Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - if only you could stay
All night long

Come on

I'm on fire, you'll all ice
Once too much is twice as nice
Get tough, fool's luck
One bite and I'm hooked
A black cat with a silver tongue
A quick lick and you're gone
One kiss, it hots up
Too close ain't close enough

I'm gettin' ready
Livin' on the edge of a dream
Gettin' ready - I'm gettin' ready
Oh, so switch on your lovin' machine

Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - I can't wait another day
Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - if only you could stay
All night long

I'm gettin' ready
Livin' on the edge of a dream
Gettin' ready - I'm gettin' ready
Come on, switch on your lovin' machine

Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - I can't wait another day
Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - if only you could stay

Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - I can't wait another day
Tear it down - there's got to be a better way
Tear it down - if only you could stay
All night
