It's a bit...raw. But it's honesty.


Nitty-Gritty, Downright Nasty

Well, hello self-restraint
Would you mind
Making yourself
A little bit more pretty?

Because temptation
She's got a rope to help me
We're getting down to the nitty-gritty.

We're planning
Crime of strangulation
She even promised
A standing ovation
If I manage
Pull off this action

So self-restraint,
What do you have that
I could possibly want and or need?
What have you got
To stop me from doing this deed?
Talk fast, my sadism
It's got a huge mouth for me to feed


Hello self-restraint
We've met before but you've only ever seen the door
Try harder; make us friends or even more

How can we unsettle the balance
Where temptation has the upper hand?
Have you got a plan
To attract my elusive attention span?

Come on
Come on now
Make yourself look pretty
I'm gonna have to get down to the nitty-gritty
It isn't going to be fit for a lady
We're gonna get downright nasty
