Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I love you when you're wild

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I'd hate you to grow mild

Since you took that job
With a company
You've changed so much
You just won't recognize me

They have you dressed up
Like a secretary
You mustn't change the things
That make you what you are

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I love you when you're wild

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I'd hate you to grow mild

Since you've been listening
To that linguaphone
You're speaking in a voice
That's not your own

I'm not sure if it's you
When I call home
You mustn't change the things
That make you what you are

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I love you when you're wild

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I'd hate you to grow mild

Whatever happened to my fighting
Biting, lightning lioness?
Little girl, little girl, little girl, little girl

I think I preferred it
When your hair was in a mess
Brittle girl, brittle girl
They're not your real curls

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I love you when you're wild

Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
Don't lose your temper
'Cause I'd hate you to grow mild

Don't lose it, don't lose it
Don't lose it, don't lose it
Don't lose it, don't lose it

Don't lose it, don't lose it
Don't lose it, don't lose it
Don't lose it, don't lose it
