Naked & Bound

Written By: Darren Lovio

Verse I
I saw her standing along a dusty roadside
I thought I’d pull up and see if she needed a ride
Cut off jeans and no shoes on her feet
Hottest hitch hiker I’d ever seen.

Verse II
I said baby, I’ll take you there, near or far
But she wouldn’t open the door, she wouldn’t get in the car
She just stood there with her toes in the sand
A smile on her face and a gun in her hand

When she pulled that Smith & Wesson
I knew I was in for, my favorite lesson

She likes to get down
Down on the ground
She likes me hanging around
Naked and bound

Verse III
I just know it was meant to be
When she told me to hand over my keys
I just knew it had to be right
By the way she tied me up so tight

Oh, my dangerous woman
She tied me up, to set me free!

She likes to go down
Down on the ground
She likes me hanging around
Naked and bound

(Lead Guitar Solo)

Verse IV
Every since then she’s been stealing my time
I’m a hostage of love, baby, but you know I don’t mind.
Curves that kill and eyes that shine
A sexy smile and a naughty mind.

She’s my lethal lover
And how I love her, surely must be a crime.

She likes to get down
Down on the ground
She likes me hanging around
Naked and bound
