dolls (come on baby let’s have a good time) lyrics – primal scream

lalalalalala

saw you walking down the street
holding hands with some other guy
wearing a sharkskin suit, black patent leather boots
& big brown flying saucer eyes
i didn’t talk to you then
you were kissing your friend
besides it was the wrong time & place
i went home & took a shower
read”our lady of the flowers” by jane genet
i knew we’d meet again

dont’t want your diamonds
don’t want your gold
i want your love
i want your soul
come on baby, let’s have a good time

lalalalalalalala
sweet rock’n’roll

i searched all over town
quizzed the dudes hanging around,
no one had ever seen a chick like you before
i hit strip joints & museums
bars and clubs & jesus
i even prayed in a cathedral for your soul
then one rainy winter tuesday
i saw you on the subway
you were headed for the tunnel
me the door
i pressed my face against the gl*ss
you sped by me in a flash
like a motorcycle crash
you smoked my skull

dont’t want your diamonds
don’t want your gold
i want your love
i want your soul
come on baby, let’s have a good time

lalalalalalalala
sweet rock’n’roll

here she comes now

so there i was walking in the pouring rain
wonderin’ who & why & where & what you were
i had hallucinatory dreams
shivers sweats & screams
like an opiate withdrawal only worse
then one long hot summer night
i took a motorcycle ride
saw you looking mean & evil
voodoo rockabilly queen
’bout to kickstart your machine
like a fighter pilot flying off to war
you had a tight black leather jacket
skull & crossbones on the back
god bless your soul of sweet gene vincent
there you were

dont’t want your diamonds
don’t want your gold
i want your love
i want your soul
come on baby, let’s have a good time

lalalalalalalala
sweet rock’n’roll
