Iggy Pop – Eat Or Be Eaten lyrics

Pop/du prey


I got nothin to eat in this old house
I gotta go out and catch a mouse
I can't be wrong so I gotta be right
It's eat or be eaten
Something's hungry like a hunter
And it's probing like a fingerrr
As the drumbeat keeps things hurrying
That's the part that's so appealing
It's the beat that dominates
Each breath you draw
Each step you take
Strike or be stncken
Eat or be eaten yum yum yum yum
Eat or be eaten
Your skills are highly specialized
But still that giri can magnetize
You sense the hunger in her eyes
It's beat or be beaten
There's no softness in her eyes
A weird dull glint is in her eyes
With a stubborn will to tantalize
Like some cheap devil in disguise
And it's troubling me
Hell it's nervy that's what it is
Eat or be eaten
Beat or be beaten
Strike or be stricken
The night is dark the night is pulp
Tilt back your head and take a gul
Of air that's screamed a thousand times
The main thing is to victimize
It's just the night for a conquenng tribe
Oh, it's just the night for a conquering tribe
Eat or be eaten
Beat or be beaten
Faster than the arrow flies
Or the man who smiles while he lies
It's just the night for a conquering tribe
And the girls are calling in a yellow dress
That girl is calling in a yellow dress
She says eat eat eat here boys
Eat eat eat here boys
And then a bop a doo ba doop ba abop
A dooba ba bop bohma bop a doo bop bohm
A doopee dee a dop adoop
A bum bayo bayum bohmbayumbohm ooooohh..
