"Physical (Adam and the Ants cover)" as written by and Adam Ant....
I want to take you baby
I want to take you out
I want to wine and dine you
Oh I want to twist and twist and shout
I want you hot in my arms
So soft on my bed
You get the key to my heart
Oh when you wear that sweet dress

But you're too physical physical to me
You're just too physical physical no to me

I want your rough house baby
I want this right in your ear
You let me feel your danger
I let you make this feeling clear here
I want the touch of your charms
The heat of your breath
I want to say all those things
That would be better unsaid

But you're too physical physical to me
You're just too physical oh
You're too physical for me
You're too physical to me
You're really jus- just too- just
Too really fuck no

You're just too physical [x2]
Too fucking physical
No [x7]
Oh you're too physical
Just too physical
Just too

    General CommentThis.. I find weird coming from a mans point of view... To me it sounds like this. Trent wants to get serious with someone. He wants to have commitment. His heart already belongs to her. But she's too physical. She wants only a sexual relationship.
    Even though it also sounds like he hasn't had sex with her yet.
    So that also led me to think.. "Too physical" Physical is just another word for "real." Maybe he thinks he doesn't stand a chance with this woman because he sees himself as a fake.(Though I could never see Trent as viewing himself in that way. But the song isn't necesarilly about him either.) Or even if not a fake, just not standing a chance.

    General Commenti think its really the guy who's too physical.
    this girl is deadly, and when the guy thinks about her he knows he wants to be with her emotionally. then he actually sees her and cant think about anything but sex. they have a relationship based on sex and he wants more, she does too, but he cant show his emotions to her because he is so fucking turned on whenever they're together

    General CommentThis song oozes sex. I don't think love or romance really has a place in the relationship being addressed, judging by the verses. I find there to be some sarcasm in the chorus, or perhaps saying the girl wears him out sexually. I've never heard the original, but this version rocks - it's just so damn sexy.

    General CommentHaha, this is such a big fucking middle finger to TVT Records it's not even funny.

    At 0:29 or so, Trent whispers in the background, "Eat your heart out, Steve".

    "Steve" is Steve Gottlieb, the president of TVT. He was the source of Trent's rage on all of Broken. As you know, this is a cover song, and a "hidden track". They had to go through a bunch of copyright bullshit, and basically Steve thought Trent couldn't pull it off.

    Adam Ant does this on the original as well, and is basically a middle finger Do-It records.

    "The Adam Ant version of "Physical" also has whispering, most notable at the beginning he says "Eat Your Heart Out, Do-It. You can't do it, can ya?". Adam Ant was referring to Do-It Records, a label they were on."
