lust for life lyrics – iggy pop

here comes johnny yen again
with the liquor and drugs
and a flesh machine
he’s gonna do another strip tease

hey man, where’d you get that lotion?
i’ve been hurting since i bought the gimmick
about something called love
yeah, something called love
well, that’s like hypnotising chickens

well, i’m just a modern guy
of course, i’ve had it in the ear before
’cause of a l*st for life
’cause of a l*st for life

i’m worth a million in prizes
with my torture film
drive a gto
wear a uniform
all on government loan

i’m worth a million in prizes
yeah, i’m through with sleeping on the sidewalk
no more beating my brains
no more beating my brains
with the liquor and drugs
with the liquor and drugs

well, i’m just a modern guy
of course, i’ve had it in my ear before
’cause, of a l*st for life (l*st for life)
’cause of a l*st for life (l*st for life, oooo)
i’ve got a l*st for life (oooh)
got a l*st for life (oooh)
oh, a l*st for life (oooh)
oh, a l*st for life (oooh)
a l*st for life (oooh)
i got a l*st for life (oooh)
got a l*st for life

well, i’m just a modern guy
of course, i’ve had it in my ear before
’cause i’ve a l*st for life
’cause i’ve a l*st for life.

well, here comes johnny yen again
with the liquor and drugs
and a flesh machine
i know he’s gonna do another strip tease

hey man, where’d ya get that lotion?
your skin starts itching once you buy the gimmick
about something called love
oh love, love, love
well, that’s like hypnotising chickens.

well, i’m just a modern guy
of course, i’ve had it in the ear before
and i’ve a l*st for life (l*st for life)
’cause i’ve a l*st for life (l*st for life)
got a l*st for life
yeah, a l*st for life
i got a l*st for life
oh, a l*st for life
got a l*st for life
yeah a l*st for life
i got a l*st for life
l*st for life [repeat and fade]
