Don't give up an inch girl
If you won't take me for the mile
Don't give up an inch girl
If you won't take me for the mile

Miles from home and I'm all alone
And looking for the first time
We took a long ride
And there by her side
I did my first crime

Well Mary Mary
Quite contrary
Just how does your garden grow
She said you ring my bell
And rattle my shell
I'll be your pretty maid all in a row

Put me to the test
Lay me down to rest
While her nails cut me up like a knife
Put me in you
Like a flesh tattoo
And scared this poor boy for life

Don't give up an inch girl
If you won't tak eme for the mile
Don't give up an inch girl
If you won't take me for the mile

It was a hot one
In the summer sun
And more than heat was rising
I remember that September
And just how you left me smiling
I left there shaken body was achin'
Like it never did before
Begged and pleaded
Swear I needed
Needed you a whole lot more

Put me to the test
Lay me down to rest
While her nails cut me up like a knife
Put me in you
Like a flesh tattoo
And scared this poor boy for life

Put me to the test
Lay me down to rest
While her nails cut me up like a knife
Put me in you
Like a flesh tattoo
And scared this poor boy for life

Made this boy's bell ring
And there I earned my wings
Left me there in sweet pain
Hell I'll never be the same

Don't give up an inch girl
If you won't take me for the mile
Don't give up an inch girl
If you won't take me for the mile
