You're taking a walk on
The wild side
If you're gonna take a
Chance with me,
I'm gonna make you take
A look on the inside
And you might not like
What you see.
So don't you knock on
My door
If you don't want an
Answer
Or gimme a beat
If you don't want a
Dancer.
I've got my love gun
Loaded,
I've got you in my sight,
I never take no for an
Answer,
So you'd better say yes
Tonight.
I told you the score
Right from the start,
You'll never get to
Heaven
If you break my heart.
So if you don't mean
Business
Knock on someone
Else's door,
'Cos it's a mean mean
Business
Staying alive if you fool
With me.
You say you want my
Money,
I say you've got no
Sense,
If you just want to bleed
Me dry
Stay on your side of the
Fence.
No mercy you can see
'Cos seven to eleven
Made a fool out of me.
So if you don't mean
Business
Knock on someone
Else's door,
'Cos it's a mean mean
Business
Staying alive if you fool
With me.
(Solo)
You're taking a walk on
The wild side
If you're gonna take a
Chance with me,
I'm gonna make you take
A look on the inside
And you might not like
What you see.
So don't you knock on
My door
If you don't want an
Answer
Or gimme a beat
If you don't want a
Dancer.
So if you don't mean
Business
Knock on someone
Else's door,
'Cos it's a mean mean
Business
Staying alive if you fool
With me...
