Lilac blowin' through the warm summer air
Hint of your perfume, the smell of your hair
Sun is settin' and the crows all cry
Electrical storm formin' in the sky

Got a hurt inside that I just gotta heal
All I can do is feel, feel, feel
Day is dyin' and the night is born
Baby, don't leave me so lovelorn

A hungry dog howls through the trees
It echoes long on the lilac breeze
The blackbird sings a song so sad
Girl, I want it bad, girl, I want it bad

Birds do it, bees do it, I wanna do it
The only thing we need to do is get down to it
Please hear my plea, know it comes from the heart
Baby, you and me got somethin' to start

A hungry dog howls through the trees
It echoes long on the lilac breeze
A blackbird sings a song so sad
Girl, I want it bad, girl, I want it bad

Why won't you hear me?
I'm a desperate man
Darlin', don't fear me, just say we can

Lilac blowin' in the warm summer breeze
Floatin' so soft with the cries in the trees
Sun is settin' and the day is dead
How can I get it through your pretty little head?

A hungry dog howls through the trees
It echoes long on the lilac breeze
A blackbird sings a song so sad
Girl, I want it bad, girl, I want it bad
Girl, I want it bad

A hungry dog howls through the trees
It echoes long on the lilac breeze
A blackbird sings a song so sad
Girl, I want it bad, girl, I want it bad
Girl, I want it bad
