"Nitty Gritty" as written by Martin Duffy, Bobby Gillespie, Andrew Innes and Gary Mounfield....
Stray hungry dog, stealing meat from a garbage can
He don't get what he want, he gets it when he can
City streets full of creeps, I'm knee deep in scum
I feel like Christ on the cross with a loaded gun

Kick me like a horse now honey
Bite me like a dog, yeah
Scratch me till I bleed now sugar
Don'tcha ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Hip shaker, heartbreaker, spine cracker, voodoo witch
You got the gold, gonna dig, dig your sugar ditch
I'll do the crime, serve the time, murder first degree
Cast your spell, gimme hell, get down on your knees

Kick me like a horse now honey
Bite me like a dog, yeah
Scratch me till I bleed now sugar
Don'tcha ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty, get down

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty, get down

If you're gonna preach how to live
You gotta live how you preach each day
Don't sell your soul honey, don't give it all away
Crash a plane, go insane, burn the palace down
Roll the dice, bet your life, I'll be comin' round

I'll kick you like a horse now honey
I'll bite ya like a dog
I'll kiss ya black and blue now sugar
I won't ever stop

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty, get down

Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
Girl, we gonna shake some, some action
