(Tricky/Bjork)

(And if the honeys think I'm stuck up,
I tell 'em shut the fuck up.) (x2)

All that she meant was good,
All that she meant was good.
Give her some time,
Give her some room.
All that she meant was good.

Better keep your mouth shut, babe,
Next to your chest,
Better keep your mouth closed baby,
And keep it close to your chest,
Better keep your mouth closed baby
Keep it close to your chest.

All that she meant was good.
(Not goin down that road)
All that she meant was good.
Give her some time, give her some space.
All that she meant was good.
How she reacted was right.

Mother I'm hungry, mother I'm hungry.
Father will you feed me (x2)
Mother I'm hungry, father will you feed me. (x3)

How you reacted was right.
Not goin' down that road (repeat).

Mother I'm hungry, father will you feed me?
Best to keep your mouth shut, baby,
And keep it close to your chest.
