It's a wild world, hey, it's a wild world, hey
It's a wild world, hey, hey

Hold me up baby, for I may fall
Hold my dish rag body tall
Our bodies melt together, ohh, we are one
Post crucifixion baby, post crucifixion and all undone

It's a wild world, it's a wild world,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, it's a wild world
Hey, it's a wild world, it's a wild one to be sure

Church bells ring out the toll of our night
A forward and forever backward, forever backward, forever forward, alright
Strophe and antistrophe, strophe and antistrophe, hey
Antistophe, antistrophe, ohh, c'mon baby and kiss me tonight

It's a wild world, a wild world
Up here in your arms tonight

It's a wild world, hey, it's a wild world, it's a wild world
It's a wild world and she's a wild girl, hey, hey, ooh, ooh
It's a wild girl, ooh, ooh, ahh, it's a wild world, ooh, ooh, ooh
And she's a wild girl, don't push me, ooh, don't push me, ooh

Don't push me, ooh, in a wild world, ohh, ooh, ooh and don't push
My wild girl, ooh, ooh, ooh, it's a wild world, hey, aha, hey
Aha, hey, aha, hey, aha, hey, aha, hey, aha, hey
It's a wild world, ooh

    General CommentWas Tracy Pew's favourite BP song apparently. Great song, but the live version performed by Nick and his Bad Seeds in recent years was even better.

    General CommentI love this song, even though the weird grunting noises he makes towards the end of the song drive me nuts for some reason.
