All aboard, stitch in time
Get yours, got mine
In a minute, I'll be there
Sit tight, get square

You could do it at the hippodrome
Slide back, trombone
Anybody got a TV tome
That's right, unknown.

When I pick up on that smell
Pick it up and run like hell
Little woman save me some
Better get up on your run

So much more than
Charlie's waking me
To my core and
Charlie's shaking me
Tell my story
Charlie's making me
And Charlie's making me smile.
Ohh-oo whoa now

(Chorus)
Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick
Wu wu wu wu wu wu dor
Wake wake wake wake wake wake wake
Wu wu wu wu wu wu wor

Everybody do the twist
Get the the message off Flea's fists
Move around like a scientist
Lay down, get kissed

Big picture and it never lies
Big daddy, will advise
Ever ready, in disguise
Sunset, sunrise

When I pick up on that smell
Pick it up and run like hell
Little women save me some
Better get up on your run

So much more than
Charlie's waking me
To my core and
Charlie's shaking me
Tell my story
Charlie's making me
And Charlie's making me smile.
Ohh-oo whoa now

My heart
Your skin
This love
I'm in
We don't arrive, without a suprise
You're right
I'm wrong
Be free
Be long
Intimite side, has come into light

When I pick up on that smell
Pick it up and run like hell
Little woman save me some
Better get up on your run

All I ever wanted to
Was pick it up and run with you
Slip it into a summer spell
Double up and run like hell

So much more than
Charlie's waking me
To my core and
Charlie's shaking me
Tell my story
Charlie's making me
And Charlie's making me smile.
Ohh-oo whoa now

My heart
Your skin
This love
I'm in
We don't arrive, without a suprise
You're right
I'm wrong
Be free
Be long
Intimate side, has come into light
My heart
Your skin
This love
I'm in
We don't arrive, without a suprise
You're right
I'm wrong
Be free
Be long
Intimate side, has come into light
