You made me need you
Need you so bad
Would you believe
And never so mad, oh yeah
Double cross me once, and never cross me again
Now you're running 'round looking for some sympathy
Well you know as well as I that we're history

You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh yeah, a civilized man

A poison arrow, right from the start
Right down to zero, you went for my heart, oh yeah
You've been hoodoo, voodoo
Start the fire again
Now you ask me to forget all you've brought me to
When you know as well as I you've got it coming to you

You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh yeah, a civilized man

You've been hoodoo, voodoo
Start the fire again
Now you're running 'round looking for some sympathy
Well you know as well as I that we're history

You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh you're so lucky baby
For I'm a civilized boy, oh yeah
That's what I am, oh baby
Civilized man
