You can take a powder, you can take a drink
You can keep the shrink and the kitchen sink
Write my name in heaven in invisible ink
I just woke up from dreaming, I think

You can take me over, you can give me a lip
You can take me under, you can give me the slip
Take off everything or tear me off a strip
Like a lady in the chamber and another in the clip

Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
You can miss me by a mile or just inch by inch
Inch by inch

Inch by inch, inch by inch
You can pull me up again, inch by inch
Inch by inch as pulses race
I long to see that look upon your face

You can take me outside, you can take me apart
You can take me upstairs, you can take me to heart
You made me love you when you thought you were smart
Don't try to stop me now, you told me to start

Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
You can miss me by a mile or just inch by inch
Inch by inch

Inch by inch, inch by inch
You can pull me up again, inch by inch
Inch by inch as pulses race
I long to see that look upon your face

I long to see that look upon your face
I long to see that look upon your face
