Obsession Lyrics

by Adam And The Ants

You're number one, you're number ten
You may be the sum my dear, go out again
It's what you're eating, what you're drinking
What you're thinking dear, go out again

Don't give me that formal stuff
I've heard enough you hear
Obsession with your body, obsession
(Tra la la)
Obsession with your brain, obsession
You want the world and you want it now, oh my, oh my
Life's a bitch, each pearl active as time slips by

Under the gun, you call that fun
Slip into neutral dear, go out again
Higher than the hair, deeper the stare
When you walk by my dear, go out again

Don't give me that pompous stuff
I've heard enough you my dear
(Tra la la)
Obsession with your body, obsession
(Tra la la)
Obsession with your brain, obsession
You want the world and you want it now, oh my, oh my
Life's a bitch, each pearl active as time slips by

It hurts so good, I knew it could
If you'd just would my dear, go out again
I'm too inspired, I'm too impressed
I could care less my dear, go out again

Don't give me that formal stuff
I've heard enough my dear
(Tra la la)
Obsession with your body obsession
(Tra la la)
Obsession with your brain obsession
You want the world and you want it now, oh my, oh my
Life's a bitch, each pearl active as time slips by

Obsession with your body obsession
(Tra la la)
Obsession with your brain obsession
You want the world and you want it now, oh my, oh my
Life's a bitch, each pearl active as time slips by
Then you die
(Oh me, oh my)
Obsession
