Skin LyricsEdit


♪♫Skin Lyrics♫♪

Mink, seal and ermine smother fat women I have a noble cause for skin -- there's just too many of them The only necessary coat -- carries a brain inside its skull Just a bitch in the manger to the balances of nature

Cover me with skin and accuse me of sin But you know what I mean There's just too many of them Give me your skin for dancing in

Hairless and streamline -- fits like my own skin Tattooed and sun-dyed -- it's warm and it's human There was too many of them -- the animals like them Shame about the smell but they're fine steeped in perfume
