Lyrics:

something about the way you taste
makes me want to clear my throat
there's a method to your movements
that really gets my goat
i look for sniffy linings
but you're rotten to the core
i've had just about all i can take
you know i can't take it no more
got a gut feeling
centered 'round long time ago
on your ability to torment
then you took your tongs of love
and stripped away my garment
got a gut feeling
