Steve Harley – Freedom's Prisoner lyrics

I wanna be the jiver you'd wanna meet

I wanna be yer danger man in the street

I wanna be the biggest thing in site

I wanna be yer dancer in the nite

Wanna be macho, wanna be cool

Wanna be treated like a jewel

To get hold of you babe I know that I can

Gotta get to you n be the man

When I see you coming weaving across the floor always

Wanna feel n beg for more

Whenever yer move them legs I always feel a pain

Wanna get with you again n again n again

When you've got yer finger on the pulse

Then all I see, is a wonderful place

I always wanna be

I hear from all the girls you're quite a bitch

That sounds so wrong, sacrilege

Put on a little make-up n jive tonite

I'd even do the hustle to catch yer site

You're like the elemental child

My crazy dancer, s*** wild

When you pout yer lips n wriggle yer hands

I wanna be bad, bad, bad like the boys in the bands

I'm always there to watch yer come

Slithering across the floor

I get so hot, stare in awe

I seen you dance in new york, london and la

Swear I'm gonna do it with you one day

It's gotta be the wonderful, magic movements that you do

I'm freedom's prisoner watching you
