Pepper — Wanna Know You lyrics

I saw a street corner angel,
Platinum problems pressed against the wall.
She paid her dues, bought stiletto shoes,
And had real mean pimp names Paul.
Well, Paul, tied her up to the railroad tracks,
'Cause he didn't get the money on time,
I heard her screaming loud from the other side of town,
And the train was coming down the line.

Exclamation points jumped out her eyes,
Rips all across her fish net thighs,
Big tears are rolling
As I'm struggling to cut her loose.

She had a little bit of karma above her left eye,
Came in the shape of a scar..
I tried to help her out with a ride back home,
But, she jumped right out of my car.

Baby, I just really want to know you,
Can't keep me away, not if you tried,
Got lost in your town, ain't in no hurry,
I'm faster than your man, he'll never catch me!

Since that night I really thought about things,
I fell for an angel with the dirty wings.
Now I have to find her, let her know how I feel,
Got to tighten up some "bid'ness" for I make it real.

Paul didn't like that I pulled her off the tracks
Real late last Saturday night.
I knew he was mad when I got to the pad,
'Cause he left me a real nice surprise.

He dropped a little message in my mailbox,
Told me where to meet him, that we had to talk,
He said I shouldn't mess with his curly locks,
And if I did again he'd pump me full of shots.

I took the meeting with that pimp named Paul,
Stabbed in the heart and watched him fall,
Went looking for my angel all over the place,
I found her in a movie by Andrew Blake.

Baby, I just really want to know you,
Can't keep me away, not if you tried,
Got lost in your town, ain't in no hurry,
I'm faster than your man, he'll never catch me!

Baby, I just really want to know you,
Can't keep me away, not if you tried,
Got lost in your town, ain't in no hurry,
I'm faster than your man, he'll never catch me!
