Primal Scream – Nitty Gritty lyrics

Stray hungry dog
Stealing meat from a garbage can
If he don't get what he want
He gets it when he can
City streets
Full of creeps
I'm knee deep in scum
Feel like christ on the cross
With a loaded gun

I'll kick me like a horse now honey
I'll Bite me like a dog
Scratch me, till I bleed now sugar
Don'tcha, ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Hipshaker
Heartbreaker
Spine cracker
Voodoo witch
You got the gold
Gonna dig dig your sugar ditch
I'll do the crime
Serve the time
Murder first degree
Cast your spell
Gimme hell
Get down on your knees

I'll kick me like a horse now honey
I'll Bite me like a dog
Scratch me, till I bleed now sugar
Don'tcha, ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we're gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Get down

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we're gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

If you're gonna preach how to live
Ya gotta live how ya preach each day,

Don't sell your soul honey,
Don't give it all away.
Crash a plane,
Go insane,
Burn the palace down.
Roll the dice,
Bet your life,
I'll be comin' round.

I'll kick you like a horse now honey
I'll bite ya, like a dog
I'll kiss ya black & blue now sugar
I won't ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we're gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Get down

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action (x4)
