strip lyrics – adam ant

it’s at times like this the great heaven knows
that we wish we had not so many clothes
so let’s loosen up with a playful tease
like all lovers did through the centuries

we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
uh-huh-huh

when it gets so hot, the end of the day
you may find your clothes getting in the way
if a pretty dress hides your true desire
fold it nice and slow, throw it on the fire

we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
uh-huh-huh

we don’t need to see what the butler saw
or a mirrored room with a mirrored floor
all those sneaky looks gazing down on you
are no subst*tute for our rendezvous

we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
uh-huh-huh

it’s at times like this the great heaven knows
that we wish we had not so many clothes
so let’s loosen up with a playful tease
like all lovers did through the centuries

if you think it’s cheap or a bit risqué
please don’t say a word i’ll just slip away
i am not a man who believes in lies
like an octopus with big x-ray eyes

don’t freeze up girl, you’re looking quite a sight
be generous, i want it all tonight!

we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
we’re just following ancient history
if i strip for you will you strip for me?
