Lyrics

  • A-Side

  • Hungry Like The Wolf (Night Version)

    Dark in the city, night is a wire
    Steam in the subway, earth is a fire
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)
    Woman, you want me, give me a sign
    And catch my breathing even closer behind
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)

    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
    I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)
    High blood drumming on your skin, it's so tight
    You feel my heat, I'm just a moment behind
    (Do dododo dododo dododo dododo doo doo)

    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf

    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    I smell like I sound, I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive

  • Moving on the floor now, babe, you're a bird of paradise
    Cherry ice cream smile, I suppose it's very nice
    With a step to your left and a flick to the right
    You catch that mirror way out west
    You know you're something special, and you look like you're the best

    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
    Oh, Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
    Two of a billion stars, it means so much to me
    Like a birthday or a pretty view
    But then, I'm sure that you know it's just for you

    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
    Oh, Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    Ha ha ha, ah ha ha

    Hey now, woo, look at that
    Did she nearly run you down?
    At the end of the drive, the lawmen arrive
    You make me feel alive, alive, alive
    I'll take my chance, 'cause luck is on my side or something
    I know what you're thinking, I'll tell you something, I know what you're thinking

    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twists across a dusty land
    And when she shines, she really shows you all she can
    Oh, Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
    And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
    Oh Rio, Rio, hear them shout across the land
    From mountains in the north down to the Rio Grande

  • B-Side

  • Planet Earth (Night Version)

    Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain
    I heard you making patterns rhyme
    Like some new romantic looking for the tv sound
    You'll see I'm right some other time

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth

    My head is stuck on something precious
    Let me know if you're coming down to land
    Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
    My eyes, so cloudy I can't see you

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is planet earth

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    Is is planet earth, you're looking at planet earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is planet earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Calling planet earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Looking at planet earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is planet earth

  • See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out, it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the four-line track
    There's a camera rolling on her back
    On her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy
    All the way down her spine

    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film

    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    And miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air
    'Cause the crowd all love pulling Dolly by the hair
    By the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here
    As she goes under again

    Girls on film (Two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (Got your picture)
    Girls on film

    Wider, baby, smiling, you've just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night
    I'm touching close, I'm holding bright
    Holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper
    Take me up 'til I'm shooting a star

    Girls on film (She's more than a lady)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (Two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (See you together)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (See you later)
    Girls on film
