LYRICS Give you my word, you can take it I'm as pure as the driven snow I'll make a promise; I'll never break it And nobody will ever know I'm supposed to be a saint so I fake it Yeah my stash is beginning to grow Just look at me, I'm so easy Dressed to kill, my teeth are clean(FILL 1) I'm feeling good, I'm feeling sleazy(FILL 2) I'm looking at your peaches and cream Trust me I'm yours for the taking I've got the biggest head you've ever seen Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water. Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water. Well have you heard? Would you believe it? Do you realise how much I know?(FILL 3) I could tell you the biggest story(FILL 4) There's no limit to the seed that I sow Yeah the suit has a hand so I shake it My greed is beginning to show Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water I'd climb the highest mountain; I'd swim the deepest ocean I'd girdle the globe just to find the magic potion That could change everything that could set me on fire Bring me down easy on wings of desire Oh to be alive, I'd suck to survive I'd do anything; to keep my head above water Head above water Head above water any comments, suggestions or corrections?
