Walking down the street
You're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket
My manhood is in your purse

You ain't a bad girl, honey
No matter what the neighbors say
It's just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to A

Sweet, sweet, child of the street

Heaven sent, you're an angel dressed in black
Cool, stiletto strut, you're a drop jaw cardiac
You're the genuine, feline, prettiest girl, I've ever seen
With your thief of hearts smile
You're a certified pleasure machine

Sweet, sweet, child of the street
Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur
You get what you want
With your pussycat pur

But, the kittens got claws
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws
She'll scratch your back

The kittens got claws
She'll tease and please you
The kittens got claws
She's a heart attack

You treat me good
Sometimes you treat me bad
But, keep it up, honey
You're the best time I've ever had

No matter what
You put me through I must confess
Oh, you got more style
Than a brand new XJS

Sweet, sweet, child of the street
Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur
You get what you want
With your pussycat purr

But the kittens got claws
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws
She'll scratch your back

The kittens got claws
She'll tease an' please you
The kittens got claws
She's a heart attack

Walking down the street
You're the center of my universe
You got the world in your pocket
My manhood is in your purse

I know you ain't a bad girl, honey
No matter what the neighbors say
It's just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to A

Sweet, sweet, child of the street
Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur
You get what you want
With your pussycat purr

But the kittens got claws
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws
She'll scratch your back

The kittens got claws
She'll tease and please you
The kittens got claws
She'll blow your stack

The kittens got claws
She'll tear your heart out
The kittens got claws
She'll scratch your back

The kittens got claws
She'll tease and please you
The kittens got claws
She's a heart attack

You scratch my back, baby
An' I'll scratch yours
