Little Sister
She got a lot of time she got a lot of money
Don't you know that aint enough
Pretty thing
All dressed up for the main attraction
Like a baby doll looking for love

And she doesn't need a reason
She just hears a calling to the wild
(Chorus)God gave man the breath of life
To grow up strong to take a wife
To change the world and love is the ritual
You learn to walk & Talk & laugh & cry
Work your fingers to the bone till the day you die
And above it all love is the ritual

Little man
Beating his chest and flexing his muscles
Gun for hire he shoots for a star
Like a handsome prince
Wallking down the street in his shining armor
Romeo in search of his heart

There's a method to this madness
And a message calling to the wild

(2nd Chorus)God gave man the breath of live
To grow up strong to take a wife
To change the world and love is the Ritual
You learn to walk & talk & laugh & cry
(He) gave you heart and soul till the day you die
And above it all love is the ritual

Come on dance little sister little sister wants to dance
All night looking for a true romance
When in a black leather jacket walks little brother
To rock her world to be her lover

So signal all the children
Send a message calling to the wild
