S.O.S. she's in disguise
S.O.S. she's in disguise
There's a she wolf in disguise
Coming out, coming out, coming out

A domesticated girl that's all you ask of me
Darling it is no joke, this is lycanthropy
The moon's awake now with eyes wide open
My body's craving, so feed the hungry

I've been devoting myself to you Monday to Monday and Friday to Friday
Not getting enough retribution or decent incentives to keep me at it
I'm starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine in an office
So I'm gonna go somewhere cozy to get me a lover
And tell you all about it

There's a she wolf in your closet
Open up and set her free
There's a she wolf in your closet
Let it out so it can breathe

Sitting across a bar, staring right at her prey
It's going well so far, she's gonna get her way
Nocturnal creatures are not so prudent
The moon's my teacher, and I'm her student

To locate the single men, I got on me a special radar
And the fire department hotline in case I get in trouble later
Not looking for cute little divos or rich city guys that just want to enjoy
But having a very good time and behave very bad in the arms of a boy

There's a she wolf in the closet
Open up and set her free
There's a she wolf in your closet
Let it out so it can breathe

S.O.S. she's in disguise
S.O.S. she's in disguise
There's a she wolf in disguise
Coming out, coming out, coming out

S.O.S. she's in disguise
S.O.S. she's in disguise
There's a she wolf in disguise
Coming out, coming out, coming out

There's a she wolf in your closet
Let it out so it can breathe

    This is my understanding, you get to a certain point in your life and this applies to women mainly at home that they lose their identity. You feel you life is just a maid etc to your family. ‘A domesticated girl, that's all you ask of me. ' Devoting Monday to Friday etc and feeling like you treated no better than an abused coffee machine in an office'…Inside you feel you need to escape and become something different and wild (wolf) she want to find the freedom and sexuality that she know she had and wants to find herself again but the family restraints hold her back. So in the closet lies her she wolf and she is asking to be let out so that she can breathe. When you are trapped in the day to day hum drum of life… sometimes you cannot breathe especially when you feel controlled. Of course I may be wrong!

    Why is everyone so uptight. First of all it applies to people in live in relationships. She is claiming to not getting enough attention and wanting a set her hidden self free. She is trying to say she is more than just the maid taking care of the home! She wants more passion and if she can´t have it with him she will go fine it elsewhere. Story of someone feeling trapped in a deadend relationship.
