He's delighted to love me, but you know, 
I just don't know what to say to him. I just don't know. 

Heard it on the radio, it's no good 
Heard it on the radio, it's news to me 
When she gets something, it's understood 
Baby's got somethin' she's not used to 

Down, down, poppy, yeah 
Down, down, poppy, yeah 

Goin' on the corner, I'm gonna score 
Baby wants somethin', she's in the mood to 
Baby wants somethin', I want more 
When I don't get it, I get blue, blue 

Down, down, and it's really comin', really comin', 
Down, down, poppy, yeah 

Goin' on the corner, I'm gonna score 
Baby's got somethin', gonna get through, through 
When I want somethin' I want more, 
Heard it on the radio, there's nothin' I can do do 

I'm in the mood to And I'm a woman and an individual And I want rockin' real slow I wanna hear it on the radio I wanna hear it, I wanna score (poppies) I wanna hear it on the radio Baby got it but baby want more 
On the radio, heard it on the radio 
Baby got it but baby want more 
[babble] 
Heard it on the radio Won't be no need for layin' in the road Tonight I'm goin' out, oh yeah Baby got it but baby want more She won't need it any more [babble] 
Although she was tense and lean in the sun Splintered like a country 
Gently pulled his finger 
Everything is soakin' and spread with butter 
Their flowers on an average [on the seed?] 

And then they laid her on the table 
She connected with the inhaler 
And the needle shiftin' like crazy, 
She was, she was completely still. 
It was like a painting of a vase, 
She just lay there and the gas traveled fast 
Through the dorsal spine and down and around 
(I want more) 
The anal cavity, her cranium 
(I wanna score) 
Just, it was really great, man, 
The gas had inflicted her entire spine 
With the elements of a voluptuous disease 
With a green vapor, made her feet light 

Baby want more 

Baby was it in the closet. 
Baby get it there, baby tag it, 
Baby got it and baby begged for it, baby 

I don't think (after station) there's any station 
(I remember when) 
Quite as interesting to me 
(baby worship something) 
As the 12th station 
(laughin' at the flowers) 
I tuned in (to the tower) too many centuries 
Were calling to me 
And I spin, come down through time 
Oh, watch them say you're too high 

And I swim through 

Hear it on the radio, goddamn in my radio, 
Hear it on the radio, hear it on the radio 
[babble] 
One long ecstatic pure sensation 
Restriction started excreting, started excreting, ah exhilarating 
Bottomless pit 

Hey Sheba, hey Salome, hey Venus eclipsin' my way ah. 
Her vessel, every woman is a vessel, is evasive, is aquatic. 
Everyone, silver ecstatic, platinum disk spinning
