Skin – Pump It Up lyrics

(Elvis Costello)
(originally performed by Elvis Costello; from his album "This Year's Model")
I've been on tenterhooks, endin' in dirty looks
Listenin' to the muzak, thinkin' 'bout this 'n' that
She said that's that, I don't wanna chitterchat
Turn it down a little bit or turn it down flat
Pump it up - when you don't really need it, yeah
Pump it up - until you can feel it
Down in the pleasure centre, hell bent or heaven sent
Listen to the propaganda, listen to the latest slander
There's nothing underhand, that she wouldn't understand
Chorus:
Pump it up - until you can feel it
Pump it up - when you don't really need it, yeah
Oh yeah, when you don't, when you don't, don't, don't really need it, ow
She's been a bad girl, she's like a chemical
Though you try to stop it, she's hard to knock out
You wanna torture her, you wanna talk to her
All the things you bought for her, putting up her temperature
(chorus)
Out in the fashion show, down in the bargain bin
You put your passion on, under the pressure pin
Fall into submission, hit-and-run transmission
No use wishin' now for any other sin
(chorus repeats 2x)
You don't really need it, you don't really need it
Don't really need it, don't really need it
Don't really need it, don't really need it
No no
