"Female Of The Species" as written by James Desmond Edwards, Francis Griffiths, Andrew Parle and Thomas Scott....
A thousand thundering thrills await me
Facing insurmountable odds gratefully
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Shock shock horror horror
Shock shock horror
I'll shout myself hoarse for your supernatural force
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Oh she deals in witchcraft
And one kiss and I'm zapped

Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me

Frankenstein and Dracula have nothing on you
Jekyll and Hyde join the back of the queue
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Oh she wants to conquer the world completely
But first she'll conquer me discreetly
The female of the species is more deadly than the male

Oh she deals in witchcraft
And one kiss and I'm zapped

Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me

Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me
Oh how can heaven hold a place for me
When a girl like you has cast a spell on me

    General Commentit was the soundtrack to the movie species im not sure if it was actually writen for it though. anyway its a great song from a great band and its obviously about a guy so transfixed by a girl he thinks she cant be real or she is an evil thing trying to tempt him to the devil or whatever, well thats the metaphore for how amazing she is. and in the case of the movie the lyrics are to be taken quite literally.

    General Commentisnt the lyric 'the female of the species is more deadlier than the male'? the most annoying grammatical error in the history of the world perhaps, but im certain thats the lyric.

    General CommentI think it says "deadly" not "deadlier", but I could be wrong. Either way I like it.

    General CommentCan I just say that a non-standard use of grammar is still an acceptable form of English...stop being so pedantic and nit picking for faults!! I love this song...deadly or deadlier either way its a really good song...I love the way Tommy Scott can really set the scene in his songs...great

    General Commentit says deadly not deadlier. sometimes Franny holds bits of words you would not expect so that may be why some people are getting confused.

    I remember that advert for the Rugrats but I had the album before that so I knew what the song was. I should probably buy Spiders on CD because the tape is all worn out.

    General CommentIsn't this missing a few lines?

    "She wants to conquer the world completely
    But first she'll conquer me discreetly
    The female of the species is more deadly than the male."

    LOVE this song.
