"Praying Mantis" as written by and P. Glasgow Don Dixon....
Album: Most of the Girls Like to Dance, But Only Some of the Boys Do

I saw a girl, she reminded me of you
She did the things that a girl like you might do
Her body was green and she had two vicious jaws
She found her a mate as she kissed him with her claws

Yes but I survived, it was on TV
She had six strong legs and it frightened me
She had insect eyes, but I could still see
That the looks she gave him, you give to me

I feel like a praying mantis (I sense her acting)
Just like a praying mantis (I sense her antics)
I can't help it I've been too frantic too long

She bit off his head so he would not feel the pain
She wanted his body so much she ate his brain
Yes but I survived, no you won't catch me
I'll resist this urge that's tempting me
I'll avert my eyes, keep you off my knee
But it feels so good when you talk to me

I feel like a praying mantis (I sense her acting)
Just like a praying mantis (I sense her antics)
I can't help it I've been too frantic too long

solo

Yes but I survived, it was on TV
She had six strong legs and it frightened me
She had insect eyes, but I could still see
That the looks she gave him, you give to me

I feel like a praying mantis (I sense her acting)
Just like a praying mantis (I sense your antics)
I can't help it I've been too frantic too long...

Like a pray-ay-ay...
I feel like a praying mantis...
Ay-ay-oh-ay...
