Persuasion (Chameleon Dub)

lyrics

persuasion, you gotta get some
persuasion, you gotta get some

look at me, I touch your bread
look at me I touch your knee
and I persuade you
like always, I persuade you
persuasion, mm-hm

look at me, I touch your head
I say the words, you go to bed
my sister, my mother, my father, my son
do anything I want them to
with persuasion
one lot of persuasion
like always, persuasion, mm-hm

now there's lots of ways to persuade you
I could do it with money, I could look at you
I could show you all that
you might as well do it anyway
you might as well choose to play the game

after all, you've seen yourself before
what difference does it make
what difference if I take a photograph
what difference does it make if someone else sees it too
all your friends do it
I mean, no-one will know it's you
anybody, it could be anybody
I mean, those magazines, you know,
they only go to middle aged men
so why don't you just do what I suggest

I persuade you
with words
I persuade you
persuasion, mm-hm

I've got a little biscuit tin
[to] keep your panties in
I've got a little biscuit tin
to keep your panties in
soiled panties, white panties, school panties, y-front panties
by the can, by the can
I persuade you
like always, I persuade you
mmh, look at me, look at me

there's a certain word and a certain touch
a certain weight a way too much
there's a little bit here, a little bit there
and when you've done it all, it's too late to care
so I persuade you
like always, I persuade you
mmh, look at my eyes
under your covers, I touch you
and I tell you what to do
do it because I tell you
do it because I love you
and I persuade you
persuasion
