"Little Savage" as written by and Elvis Costello....
I would have waited all my life (I would have waited all my life)
Just to make love out of something other than spite
But the beauty is the beast you're baiting (I would have waited all my life)
Should really be worth the waiting

You do something very special to
Mister Average (Mister Average)
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage

And so you turn your back on me (and so you turn your back on me)
And all the hot air that only echoes stale tobacco

You do something very special to
Mister Average (Mister Average)
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage

Actions speak louder now than words (actions speak louder now than words)
By just a fraction
What's the use of saying I love you when I'm drinking to distraction?
We save our sanity (actions speak louder than words)
By saying such and such
After it's all been discussed (actions speak louder than words)
You say you must be touched

You do something very special to
Mister Average (Mister Average)
Now the lamb lies with the lion
He's just a little savage

Little savage
