Back to The Pleasure Principle lyrics

The Pleasure Principle

You might think I'm crazy but I'm serious
It's better you know now
What I thought was happiness
Was only part-time bliss
You can take a bow

It was all just one big night out on the town
Riding in your limousine
We turned right, then I said wrong
Which brings us to a stop
As the light is changing

Oh, my meter's running
So I've got to go now

It's the pleasure principle, oh
It's the principle of pleasure, oh
It's the pleasure principle, oh

It's true you want to build your life on guarantees
Hey, take a ride in a big yellow taxi
I'm not here to feed your insecurities
I wanted you to love me

This has become an all too familiar scene
It's not the first time I've paid the fare
Where'd you get the idea of material possession?
Thank you for the ride nowhere

And oh, my meter's running
So I've really got to go

It's the pleasure principle, oh
It's the principle of pleasure, oh
It's the pleasure principle, oh

I know what you mean to me
Baby this is nowhere
You know what became between you and me
Human differential

It's the principle of pleasure, oh
It's the pleasure principle, principle, oh

You might say that I'm no good for you
I wouldn't trust your looks, baby if I could
I got too many things I wanna do
Before I'm through, hey

It's the pleasure principle
It's the pleasure principle
It's the pleasure principle

Baby you can hold me down
Baby you can hold me down
After all the love that we've been through
After all you put me through, yeah
Love me, hey, love me

It's the pleasure principle
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
