Track Name: What's Wrong With Being Sexy?
'What's wrong with being sexy?' he whispered at my ear
Why don’t we keep the lens cap on for all the difference it'll make, my dear
Oh dear / oh dear / oh dear
He thought I was his oil slick / he tried to feed me Vaseline
He seemed to think I’d genuflect (and while you’re down there, darling)
He tried to call me ‘baby’; he tried to call me ‘bitch’
With dead eyes wide he asked in wonder:

What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy if it gets you what you want?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy if it gets you what I want?

What’s wrong with being sexy? We all have a mouth to feed
And a pretty throat for swallowing as long as there is hunger
So hold aloft your petrol heart and try to look empowered
You are a very fine machine
And what’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy, now that you have your rights?

Oh baby, haven’t you heard
These days we’re ever so equal
So shut up and take it off
Palpitate what you’ve got
Shut up and keep it sexy
Shut up and keep it sexy
Shut up and keep it sexy
Give them what you want

I keep two rabbits on my chest
My spine’s a fleet of ships
My collarbone’s the telephone
I pout with origami lips
My fingers are ten shell-less snails
My skin is soft like rusty nails
Wax teeth bite back my glacial tongue
And creaking, we all move as one
We know how to be sexy
We know how to be sexy
‘Cause what’s wrong with being sexy?

If you thought the walls had come down
We’ve a surprise for you alright
Success is dull grey pain
So why should we complain?

What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy if it gets you what you want?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy?
What’s wrong with being sexy if it gets you what you want?
