Pretenders – Precious at Capitol Theatre, and more

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

Pretenders – Up The Neck

Anger and lust my senses running amok
Bewildered and deluded, have I been hit by a truck?
When my tongue lay inside his lip
Felt like the time in the womb
But I woke up with a headache that split my skull
Alone in the room

I got down on the floor with my head pressed between my knees
Under the bed with my teeth sunk into my own flesh
I said baby, oh sweetheart

Lust turns to anger, a kiss to a slug
Something was sticky on your shag rug, look at the tile
I remember the way he groaned and moved with an animal skill
I rubbed my face in the sweat that ran down his chest
It was all very run of the mill
But I noticed his scent started to change somehow
His face went berserk and the veins bulged on his brow
I said baby, oh sweetheart

Bondage to lust, abuse of facility
Blackmailed emotions confuse the demon and devotee
I was sure his intentions were sweet
And that mine was as well
But a wish is a shot in the dark
When your coin’s down the well

I got out in the hall with my teeth in my head
Up to my neck and I said, said, said dead
I said baby, oh sweetheart
