"Wild Thing" as written by and Charles Fink....
Time can make more rubble out of dreams than anything
In a quiet neighborhood where she's living without wings
There's eyes behind the curtains and there's ears below the floor
Cracks inside the ceiling and there's shadows at the door

The boredom stirs a rage inside her soul
A rage that reaches out and takes control
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing

Nine days out alone
Sleep in the dirt
She walks back into town
With blood stains on her shirt
Everyone has questions
But no one wants to know
How far the anger in someone
Can really make them go

Her tangled hair and mud stains on her knees
Bruised ribs and rips on the side of her jeans
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing

Well I used to be a citizen in this town
'Til my teeth turned gray and my hair fell out
All the civil decent people, they don't want to know
But a girl looking for trouble said she'd give me a go

While everybody's sleeping in this town this night
From the crooked clock tower to the borderline
And night star static in the winter breeze
She's lying in the moonlight with her hands between my knees

She says it's all right
Well, it's all right by me
Well, it's all right by me

Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing
Baby she's a wild thing

    Song MeaningCharlie said somewhere this song is based on the character Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks. I also read that he is a massive fan of Twin Peaks.

    General CommentHe's talking about the girl in both cases...I think the latter incident with him happened earlier and then as time passed she became more and more reckless until she at last went out at night and came back with bloodstains....this song seems just an amused recollection of how his path crossed with this estranged girl.
