Lyrics

Pussy Magnet

Written By: Sassy Kraimspri

Just a little shake no more a little shake and you'll have victory
Make my body ache make my body ache it's working you will see

Oh my god that sounds so sexy
come on lover taste me

Got my love can't buy love but it don't come for free
just grate it and rate it and maybe you will see

Oh my god that sounds so sexy
come on lover taste me
got my pants on fire
burning with desire

No body and soul
just rock and roll
we're counting heads she said
and if you're red you're dead

Noose

Written By: Sassy Kraimspri

someday soon I will surely fall in
with someone I can't noose
whom I can feel excited about
without wanting to cut loose

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
I must remember that myself I'd warned

treat 'em mean keep 'em keen
a motto to live by I say
remember his worth and what you liked first
engage in the games we all play

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
I must remember that myself I'd warned

All along you were the last to know
and all along they told me not to fall
I didn't listen and now it's you I'm missing
all along you weren't the one
you know we're not the ones we were

someday soon, someday soon I will surely fall in with someone I can't noose.

Bad Disease

Written By: Sassy Kraimspri

I gotta bad disease
it's you
ain't gonna tell you what to do
but shove it up your ass and smile
this road goes on for miles and miles

It's never raining men these days
it's only raining cunts
it's never raining men men men mennanana

I've gotta bad disease it's me
you bring me to my knees it seems
get's harder every single day
ignoring every word you say

It's never raining men these days
it's only raining cunts
it's never raining men men men mennanana

take your final turn
and we'll see who burns
eat my bad disease

It's never raining men these days
it's only raining cunts
it's never raining men men men mennanana

When it Rains, it Pours

Written By: Sassy Kraimspri

All this thinking
is gonna get me drinkin
and all them liars
they've never seen such fire
it's a bad situation
when you're living life just for temptation
but all this drinking it sure has got me thinking

go on and get gone
you get what you give
never done no one no wrong

Oh you didn't like it
you'll never know until you've tried it
and all them lessons
they're gettin hard to be dismissin
all of them are acting dirty
but you'll win by acting flirty
all of this lying it's gonna get you frying

go on and get gone
you get what you give
never done no one no wrong

no greed, you've never known me
you're no better than
any other man
I found you, I never planned to
you've got your mother's eyes
and your mother's thighs

go on and get gone
you get what you give
never done no one no wrong
