Lyrics
I want to tell you about something
That happened to me not that long ago
It was about a girl from a different world, all decked out in indigo
And hen the rain would fall upon her face she was almost beautiful
You could see her coming from a mile away, man she had such a glow
That’s the way the whole affair began

There was magic in her touch but there were lies upon her tongue
And every time that I would to climb her ladder
She would hacksaw off the bottom rung
But, boy what a ride she gave for a quarter spent and a penny saved
She rang my bells from dusk ’til dawn
She was a master in search of a slave
Her enemies were quick to point that out
So I put on my shield and armour and gave a loud war shout

You want it, you got it, come get it right now
You need it, then seal it, don’t steal it right now
You like it, then try it, I dare you to right now
You want it, you got it, come see it right now

But I don’t like it when it rains out
Time has changed alot of things with her and finally with me
A feel like I’m a brand new cat and her a crumby, evicted flea
That’s the way I feel about things now

Now I’m a new man, do the best that I can
The whole thing makes me sick sometimes
And sometimes makes me laugh
I’ll chart my course out towards the sea on a leaky, shakey raft
That’s the attitude I have right now
I’ve got a brand new pair of shoes
And I need to walk on different ground

You want it, you got it, come get it right now
You feel it, conceal it, come steal it right now
You like it, then try it, I dare you right now
You want it, you got it, come see it right now

The romance starts off light then gets heavier and heavier
And we feel it, and on and on it goes, do hear me, right now

You want it, you got it, come get it right now
You like it, then try it, I dare you right now
You feel it, conceal it, come steal it right now
You want it, you got it, come see it right now
Right now! Right now! Right now! Right now!

Analysis: This is a really cool and fun song, stepping out of the more serious tone and desperate romanticism of the last era of Wahray and Soul.
