I like the way you cross the street 'cause your precious
Moving through the Cleveland heat how precious
Taking rides and all the kicks was so precious
But you know I was shittin' bricks 'cause I'm precious

Made me want to, made me want to, you made me make it
Oh, you're so mean

East 55th and Euclid avenue was real precious
Hotel sterling coming into view how precious
It's a pity that you bruised my hip 'cause I'm precious
You shouldn't let your manners slip you're too precious

Made me want to, made me want to, you made me make it
Oh, you're so mean

We went around and round and round and round and round the Shoreway
We was gonna do it do it do it on the pavement
Oh maybe maybe I'm gonna have a baby
We was a duet oh we do it all night

I was feeling kind of ethereal 'cause I'm precious
I had my eye on your imperial you're so precious
Now Howard the duck and Mr Stress both stayed
"Trapped in a world that they never made"
But not me baby I'm too precious
Fuck off

Made me want to, made me want to, you made me make it
Oh, you're so mean

    General CommentSkipped a few lyrics. Chrissie Hynde says "But not me baby, I'm too precious;
    (I had ta) fuck off." It isn't just a blank and then "fuck off". The "I had to" is compressed together just a bit. But it's there, quite audibly.

    General Commentcrazymanmichael: thank you for your insight into 'Howard the Duck' which is very interesting. I have long been troubled by the meaning of those lyrics.
