In the beginning God made the land
Then He made the water and creatures, then He made man
He was born with a passion, love and hate
A restless spirit with a need for a mate
But there was something that was missing, something lost
So he came with the answer, here's what it cost
One part love, one part wild
One part lady, one part child

I give you
(Women, women) lots of pretty women
(Men, men) they can't live without them
(Women, women) lots of pretty women
(Men, men) they can't live without them

And in the garden, lust began
The animal instinct, the wanton man
She fed him with a hunger, an appetite
And fillin' with emotion he took a bite
It was one part love, one part child
One part lover, one part wild

I give you
(Women, women) lots of pretty women
(Men, men) they can't live without them
(Women, women) lots of pretty women
(Men, men) they can't live without them

Skin on skin, let the love begin

It was one part love, one part wild
One part lover, one part child
A whole lotta fire, a little bit of ice
A whole lotta something you can't sacrifice

I give you
Hair, eyes, skin on skin
Legs, (legs) thighs, (thighs) what's that spell? (what's that spell?_

(Women, women) oh, oh
(Women, women)
(Women, women) callin' every girl
(Women, women) all around the world
(Women) women, oh we can't live without them
(Women, women)

    General CommentOne of the best songs off of "Hysteria". Just awesome. It's one of my favorite music videos as well.

    General CommentThis is a cool song, how exactly did it almost make Hysteria bomb?? Just because it was the first single and didn't explode up the charts like Pour Some Sugar On Me did?? I think it would take more than 1 song to make Hysteria bomb. Too many classics on it.

    General CommentI started out out on this stuff. I remember Rick before the accident. The first 2 albums were the best. Hysteria and pyromania were good. After that it went down hill. Suddenly Joe sounded like bryan adams or was it the other way. Respect to Steve Clarke!

    General CommentWhenever I listen to this song, all I can think of is of how important women are to men.

    My OpinionI think it's just about all the things that make men fall in love with women.

    General CommentGreat song! Its more about Genesis in the bible than just lusting after women, though it certainly does illustrate that as well. Every lyric page i see has one and only one incorrect lyric, in two places.
    One part love, one part wild, one part CLEVER, one part child.
    That is the word that is clearly said. Nothing but Joe Elliot himself will convince me otherwise, because thats what I hear, and makes even more sense than the word "lover". There is no "c" or "k" in the word "lover" and it can be clearly heard in the album form of the song. What do you think?
