Peek-a-Boo LyricsEdit


♪♫Peek-a-Boo Lyrics♫♪

Creeping up the backstairs Slinking into dark stalls Shapeless and slumped in bath chairs Furtive eyes peep out of holes She has many guises She'll do what you want her to Playing dead and sweet submission Cracks the whip deadpan on cue

Peek-a-boo -- Peek-a-boo Peek-a-boo -- Peek-a-boo

Reeking like a pigsty Peeling back and gagging free Flaccid ego in your hand Chokes on dry tears, can you understand? She's jeering at the shadows Sneering behind a smile Lunge and thrust to pout and pucker Into the face of the beguiled

Peek-a-Boo -- Peek-a-Boo Golly jeepers Where'd you get those peepers? Peepshow, creepshow Where did you get those eyes?

Strobe lights pump and flicker Dry lips crack out for more "Come bite on this rag doll, baby! That's right now hit the floor" They're sneaking out the back door She gets up from all fours Rhinestone fools and silver dollars Curdle into bitter tears

Peek-a-boo -- Peek-a-boo Golly jeepers Where'd you get those weepers? Peepshow, creepshow Where did you get those eyes?
