Persuasion Lyrics

by Adam And The Ants

She's rich, she's powerful
She doesn't want to be a man
(Do, do, do, do, do)
She takes me as she finds me
Like only a woman can, yeah, ah

She's tough, but vulnerable
I'd say adoring
I'd like to say we're perfect
But you know that would be boring

Clap your hands, pretty baby clap your hands
It's gonna take a little
(Oh)
Oh, oh, oh, persuasion
Do, do, do, do, do, persuasion
Oh, oh, oh, persuasion
You know what I mean now

Adore that shape
I really really don't know why
But as long as I live
I just can't help but try

Please don't say you love me
You saw us in a crystal
Every time you do that
I'm reaching for my pistol

Clap your hands, pretty baby clap your hands
It's gonna take a little
(Oh)
Oh, oh, oh, persuasion
Do, do, do, do, do, persuasion
Oh, oh, oh, persuasion
You know what I mean now

Less about yesterday, more about forever
Keep it nice and simple, try not to be clever
It's nice to be right but on this occasion
Less about perhaps, more about persuasion!

Oh, oh, oh, persuasion
Do, do, do, do, do, persuasion
Oh, oh, oh, persuasion
You know what I mean now
