Baby please
Baby please don't go
I got lies to feed
They want skin and seed
Now don't make me crawl

Please
Baby don't bite your lip
Give you half what I got
If you untie the knot
It's a promise...
Salome
Salome

Shake it shake it shake it
Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Baby please
Baby what's that tune
Well I heard it before
When I crawled from your door
And my blood turned blue

Please
Baby please slow down
Baby I feel sick
Don't make me stick to my promise
Salome
Salome

Shake it shake it shake it
Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Baby please
Baby don't say no
Won't you dance for me
Under the cherry tree
Won't you swing down low

Please
Baby please say yes
Baby don't go away

You're spilling me
And your precious love
Salome...
Salome

Shake it shake it shake it
Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

Salome
Shake it shake it shake it
Salome

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, especially the Zooromancer mix! As for what it's about, that's pretty easy. :) It's pertains to the Biblical story where King Herod asked a dancer, Salome, if he could give her a present, so she requested the head of John the Baptist on a platter ("don't make me stick to my promise")!

    General CommentI love this song, too. I assume the reason it didn't make it on the Achtung Baby album is because "Mysterious Ways" is about the same thing from another angle.
