I like the way you cross the street 'cause your precious 
Moving through the Cleveland heat how precious 
Taking rides and all the kicks was so precious 
But you know I was shittin' bricks 'cause I'm precious

Made me want to, made me want to, you made me make it 
Oh, you're so mean

East 55th and Euclid avenue was real precious 
Hotel sterling coming into view how precious 
It's a pity that you bruised my hip 'cause I'm precious 
You shouldn't let your manners slip you're too precious

Made me want to, made me want to, you made me make it 
Oh, you're so mean

We went around and round and round and round and round the Shoreway 
We was gonna do it do it do it on the pavement 
Oh maybe maybe I'm gonna have a baby 
We was a duet oh we do it all night

I was feeling kind of ethereal 'cause I'm precious 
I had my eye on your imperial you're so precious 
Now Howard the duck and Mr Stress both stayed 
"Trapped in a world that they never made" 
But not me baby I'm too precious 
F*ck off

Made me want to, made me want to, you made me make it 
Oh, you're so mean
