Mudhoney — Pump It Up lyrics

I've been in tenter-hooks
ending in dirty looks
Listen to the muzack
Think about this and that
She said that's that
I don't want to chitter-chat
Turn it down a little bit
Turn it down flat

Pump it up when you don't really need it
Pump it up until you can't feel it

Down in the pleasure centre
Hell bent or heaven sent
Listen to the propaganda
Listen to the latest slanger
There's nothing underhand
That she wouldn't understand

Pump it up until you can't feel it
Pump it up when you don't really need it

Hey

She been a bad girl
She like a chemical
Though you try and stop it
She like a narcotic
You wanna torture her
You wanna talk to her
All the things you bought for her
Are Puttin' up your temperature

Well out in the fashion show
Down in the bargain bin
You put the passion out
Under the pressure pin
Down into submission
Hit and run transition
No use wishing for anyother sin

Pump it up until you can't feel it
Pump it up when you don't really need it
Don't really need it, Pump it up you don't really need it
