Lyrics

Animal Attraction

Written By: Chip Martin

Gary and Jane hate each other's guts
But they have to work together and it drives them nuts
"Cause there's this there's this animal attraction.
He doesn't like the way that she calls him "dude".
She doesn't like his apathetic attitude.
But there's this, there's this animal attraction.

Instincts can't be denied.
Feelings won't stay inside.
You can run, but you can't hide.
Stand back when worlds collide.

He doesn't like the way she yells.
She really doesn't like the way he smells.
But there's this, there's this animal attraction.
She had enough and she slapped his face
So he kissed her real hard in a private place.
Well it was it was animal attraction.

Well they called a truce and they talked awhile
Then they went to her place and did it doggie style.
Well it was, it was animal attraction.
Some night you hear them howling at the moon
Then it's jungle love every afternoon.
It's that, it's that animal attraction.

It Might Take A Miracle

Written By: Chip Martin

Hey, how about another kiss?
Hey, we don't have to let it end like this.
Feel the heat? Feel the hunger.
We're not getting any younger.
Hey, we don't have to let it end like this.

I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.
I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.

Hey, baby don't you want a man like me?
Hey, baby you'll be glad you did you'll see.
Feel the heat? Feel the pleasure,
While I dive for hidden treasure.
Hey, let me make you moan in ecstacy.

I've always hated sad goodbyes.
It's not too hard to recognise.
Although you're wearing your disguise.
I can see the "want to" in your eyes.

I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.
I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.

Hey, tell me that you think about me too.
Hey, we could have some fun just me and you.
See the flash? Hear the thunder.
Please don't make me wait and wonder.
Hey, we could have some fun just me and you.

I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.
I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.

Hey, how about another kiss?
Hey, we don't have to let it end like this.
Feel the heat? Feel the hunger.
We're not getting any younger.
Hey, we don't have to let it end like this.

I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.
I'll cool down but it might take a miracle.
Don't get mad, don't get so hysterical.
