No

I'm going down to Alphabet St.
I'm gonna crown the first girl that I meet
I'm gonna talk so sexy
She'll want me from my head to my feet

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yes, she will
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm gonna drive my daddy's Thunderbird
(My daddy's Thunderbird)
A white red an' white, '66, so glam, it's absurd
('67)
I'm gonna put her in the back seat
And drive her to Tennessee

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Tennessee
Yeah, yeah, yeah, drive her

Excuse me, baby
I don't mean to be rude
But I guess tonight I'm just not
I'm just not in the mood
So if you don't mind
I would like to watch

Yeah, yeah, yeah, can I?
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Can I, can I, can I, can I?

We're going down, down, down
If that's the only way
To make this cruel, cruel world
Hear what we got to say
Put the right letters together
And make a better day

Yeah, yeah, yeah, better days
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's okay
Yeah, yeah, yeah
(Maybe it's the only way)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Cat, we need you to rap
(No)
Cat, we need you to rap
Don't give to us slow
'Cause we know you know
New power soul
Gotta, gotta, gotta go

Talk to me, lover
Come on, tell me what you taste
Didn't your mama tell you
Life is too good to waste?
(Put your love down)

Didn't she tell you
That 'Lovesexy' was the glam of them all?
If you can hang, you can trip on it
You surely won't fall
(Put your love down)

No side effects
The feeling lasts forever
Straight up, it tastes good
It makes you feel clever
(Put your love down)

You kiss your enemies
Like you know you should
Then you jerk your body
Like a horny pony would
(Put your love down)

You jerk your body
Like a horny pony would
Now run and tell your mama about that
And while you're at it
Tell your papa about this

Put your love down there
When you wanna get shot
(No)
Yeah, yeah

Put your love down there
When you wanna get shot
Put your love down there
When you wanna get shot
Put your love down there
When you wanna get shot
Put your love down there

Get home, Alphabet St.
No
Lovesexy, no

Yeah, oh, Alphabet St.
Yeah, oh, Alphabet St.

A, B, C, D, E, F, H
I love you
