Tattoo, tattoo

I got Elvis on my elbow.
When I flex, Elvis talks.
I got hula girls on the back of my leg.
And she hulas when I walk.

Screaching cherry red
Screamin' electric green
Purple mountain's majesty
Really talk to me. Talk to me, babe.

Swap meet Sally, tramp stamp Kat
Mousewife to momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo.
Tattoo, tattoo

(Tattoo, tattoo) Show me your dragon magic.
(Tattoo, tattoo) So autobiographic.

Best believe that needle won't hurt you.
Best to see these true colors, than to follow one of your false virtues.

Here's a secret to make you think:
Why is the crazy stuff we never say, poetry in ink?
Speaking dayglow red,
Explode-o pink, purple mountain's majesty
Show me you, I'll show you me.

Swap meet Sally
Tramp stamp Kat
Mousewife to momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo.
Tattoo, tattoo.

(Tattoo, tattoo) Sexy dragon magic.
(Tattoo, tattoo) So very autobiographic.
(Tattoo, tattoo) Got a hold on me.
(Tattoo, tattoo) Put a spell on me.

Uncle Danny, had a coal tattoo
He fought for the unions
Some of us still do.
On my shoulder is the number
Of the chapter he was in.
That number is forever
Like the struggle here to win.

(Everybody!) Swap meet Sally
Tramp stamp Kat
Mousewife to momshell in the time it takes to get that new tattoo.
Tattoo, tattoo.

(Tattoo, tattoo) Sexy dragon magic.
(Tattoo, tattoo) So very autobiographic.
(Tattoo, tattoo) Got a hold on me.
(Tattoo, tattoo) Put a spell on me.
(Tattoo, tattoo) I'm in love with you.
(Tattoo, tattoo) Show me me, show me you.
(Tattoo, tattoo) Look at me, look at you (Tattoo, tattoo)
