Lyrical Errors

Punishment-Reward Relationship

I saw you at the dance last night,
That's the last line that your mother would want to hear of this song,
'Cos the things you do,
And the way that you do them,
Are the sort of things,
That make me want to sing along.

And from the look in your eyes,
I think I know your kind,
I know the clothes you wear,
Show you got a dirty mind.

Your blue dress unzipping,
Your flesh exhibiting,
My fervent delight just to rewrite this line,

I get so excited at the mention of correction,
What do you know, intervention of erection.

I maybe thought I almost died,
The way you kissed me with your beautiful eyes,
And then you say you adore my magic love,
Could have only been made by god above,
Could have only been made by god above,
You were my pupil,
I was your teacher,
You called me 'Sir',
You had me dress up like a preacher,
Did you mean to freak me out?
With your dirty mind,
Never knew you'd be that kind.

Just to rewind this night and play back the pleasure,
Was surely going to happen again for the first time.

I get so excited at the mention of correction,
What do you know, intervention of erection.
