"Flesh" as written by Steven Tyler, Desmond Child and Joe Perry....
The day rolls in, the night rolls out
Desire rules without a doubt
The heart beats fast, you salivate
And when you come, it won't be late
I guess by now, you got the score
A little taste you want it more
From San Antone to Marrakesh
Yeah, when the night comes
Everybody's gotta have flesh
You got me all soakin' wet
Flesh - the only thing that's worth the sweat
From the day that Eve did Adam down to Romeo and Juliet
Everybody gotta have
The prince of lust has met his match
The witch has brewed her baddest batch
His sword is sharp and hard as stone
Her cauldron begs for one more bone
And so my love, this story's told
From modern times to days of old
From Boston, Mass to Bangladesh
Yeah, when the night comes
Everybody's gotta have
Flesh - it's got me all soaking wet
Flesh - the only thing that's worth the sweat, yeah
From the Mississippi River
To the highest mountain in Tibet
Everybody gotta have
Flesh - you got me all soakin' wet
Flesh - the only thing that's worth the sweat
Flesh - you got me all soakin' wet
Flesh - the only thing, the only thing, the only thing
From a Sufi in a Rickshaw to a bimbo in a pink Corvette
Everybody gotta have

    General CommentThe entire song is a satire aobut sex."The prince of lust has met his match, the wich has brewed her baddest batch. His sword is sharp and hard as stone, her cauldron begs for one more bone." He's basically saying that sex is like a universal language. :)) lol I love the part where he says, "the only thing thats worth the sweat." I mean, if you're gonna be doing a strenuous activity that makes you work hard and sweat, the only thing worth all that trouble is sex.

    General CommentI agree with Acetica -- this song is definitely the statement that sex is the "universal language". Great lyrics and tune. My favourite line is the last verse.
