Onstage Behavior: Unknown


I found a girl with a pretty face
I tied a rope around her waist
I know when she's in and when she goes out
Well there ain't nothing to guess about
She covers her ears when I play my guitar
She runs away but not very far
Just push a button - retractable cord
I pull her back when I get bored
One word from her and she'd be free
But she's exactly where she wants to be
Magnetic Madonna she glows in the night
Reciprocal pull, I flow to her light
Woman I am bound to you
But what do I want to do?
Woman what do I want?
