Steve Vai – Little Alligator lyrics

I could read your mind and all it's freakish desires
A full on femme fatale with an elegant face of fire
Through the haze of your senses and your defenses
God only knows how long it is till you hit the bottom
But that's all right
I'll get you through paradise

Don't need your wings
For the Queen
Little alligator

From the fangs the poison is so sweetly injected
The words that fall from your tongue are so filthy
Your mouth must be infected
Not a man but not quite a lady
Hopelessly androgenous
Hell only knows how hot it gets down south of the border
But that's all right
Your secret is safe tonight

There is no shame
Glory and fame
For little alligators

In the jungle it's comin' down
For those who live in the lost and found
Can't mistake your attitude so heavy
Now get over here

You can hang your image in a brand new dimention
Cause I don't even think your mirror understands your reflection
But that's all right as long as you're not uptight
And in your brain
It' s all the same

Little alligator

    Where oh where did all my negativity come from? It feels so 'alien';-) to me now. What a gift it was though, I am so thankful, gratitude is overflowing in my heart and this caterpillar is becoming a butterfly. Born in light and innocence with divine power of imagination and love to create my own reality. But without knowing it. I am so pleased I remember my little pet alligator, no one else would.
