Stanky Sweet

lyrics

we carried our affair so discreetly
you gave your love to me so completely
you never knew a gal could stank so sweetly
but still you tried to run away

olly olfactory oxygen free
roses never smelled as sweet as me
you can run, you can hide, but you'll never be free
might as well kick off your shoes and stay

stanky sweet's got a hold on you
a hold on your brother and all your friends too
peter, peter, bloodsucking skeeter, junky on the street
can't stay away from my stanky sweet

oh my hoo-haw
zippedy-doo-dah
oh what a wonderful pain
see even when I lose I win
cause I know you're comin' round again

the stanky sweet's got you in a vise
sugar and spice, don't make me tell you twice
you gimme snips and snails then puppy don't get no treat
leave you starve for the stanky sweet

you brandish bravado and talk so loud
always showin' off whenever you're in a crowd
but behind closed doors you come with your head bowed
purring like a lion in a zoo

I don't need no chains to bind you to me
I crack my whip phermonally
I could go on a smelling spree
of parfum eau de you

oh my hoo-haw
zippedy-doo-dah
oh what a wonderful pain
see even when I lose I win
cause I know you're comin' round again

stanky sweet's got you under a spell
tossin' all your life down a wishing well
I don't need your lies, I got my own security
you're forever enchanted by my stanky sweet
