Martha Reeves & The Vandellas – Live Wire lyrics

Live wire, ooh
Live wire, ooh
Live wire, ooh
Live wire, ooh

It's my birthday
And he forgot again
Every time we date
He's always late

Tired of abuses and excuses
I've made up my mind
Gonna tell him this time
We're through, yeah

But everything I plan to say
Just seems to fade away
Every time I see his face
My eyes light up
Sparks start to flying

Cause he's a live wire
A real live wire
He's like a bolt of lightning
That sets my soul afire

Sweet kisses are his alibis
And that's, that's
Where my weakness lies
Though I plan and rehearse
Things I want to say
The words never, never
Come my way

Cause everything I plan to say
Just seems to fade away
Every time I see his face
My eyes light up
Sparks start to flying
Cause he's a live wire

Like a bolt of lightning
That sets my soul afire

He's like a live wire
Real live wire
A bolt of lightning
My eyes light up, yeah
Sets my soul afire

He's like a live wire
A real live wire
A bolt of lightning
Yeah, live wire
My eyes light up, yeah
