Don Dixon – Praying Mantis lyrics
You're standing apart again Mark
One two, one two three four

I saw a girl, she reminded me of you
She did the things that a girl like you might do
Her body was green and she had two vicious jaws
She polished her mate as she kissed him with her claws
Yeah but I'll survive, it was on tv
She had six strong legs and it frightened me
She had insect eyes but I could still see that the look she gave him you give to me
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a praying mantis)
I sense your antics but I can't help it (I sense your antics but I can't help it)
I've been too frantic too long (I've been too frantic too long)

She bit off his head so he would not feel the pain
She wanted his body so much she ate his brain
Yeah but I'll survive, no you won't catch me
I'll resist the urge that is tempting me
I'll avert my eyes, keep you off my knee
But it feels so good when you talk to me
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a praying mantis)
I sense your antics but I can't help it (I sense your antics but I can't help it)
I've been too frantic too long (I've been too frantic too long)
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a praying mantis)
I sense your antics but I can't help it (I sense your antics but I can't help it)
I've been too frantic too long (I've been too frantic too long)

Yeah but I'll survive, it was on tv
She had six strong legs and it frightened me
She had insect eyes but I could still see that the look she gave him you give to me
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a praying mantis)
I sense your antics but I can't help it (I sense your antics but I can't help it)
I've been too frantic too long (I've been too frantic too long)
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a praying mantis)
I sense your antics but I can't help it (I sense your antics but I can't help it)
I've been too frantic too long (I've been too frantic too long)
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a praying mantis)
I sense your antics but I can't help it (I sense your antics but I can't help it)
I've been too frantic too long (I've been too frantic too long)
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a prey)
I sense your antics but I can't help it
I've been too frantic too long
I feel like a praying mantis (I feel like a prey)
I sense your antics but I can't help it
I've been too frantic too long
I feel like a prey
