I'm the king of the city of broken hearts
I'll let you in, but nobody's gotten out alive yet
No saint, no sinner, no sinner, no saint
But they've all come looking for some satisfaction
Pain and pleasure, pleasure and pain
No I can't give you what you want
But I can give you what you need baby
I'll be your lover but I'm not your friend
Cause when your heart it breaks
Wont be 'round long enough to pick it up
Yeah baby

I've lived a Scandalous Life
Don't try to change it and don't mistake it
I've lived a Scandalous Life
And in the end I'll be the one to take your heart and break it

Sure enough, you've got men with more money and grace
I'll make love 'til the sweat's running down my face
Pain and pleasure, pleasure and pain
Yeah you've got it if your looking for some action
I'll take you to heaven
Heaven and hell
Though I don't give you what you want
I can give you what you need baby
Though you just might regret somebody like me
But when your legs are shaking
You'll know I know just how to serve it up
Yeah baby
