      Song Title: Wild Animal

      Lyrics below

      This songs ’bout a little gorilla

      He got long shiny black hair
      all over his body
      King Kong never ever left me alone
      My King Kong never ever looks at any other woman
      Up in the beat arouund the bend
      Here comes little king kong again
      Over the vine, above the tree
      Here comes little King Kong looking for me
      and that is why he and I hung around
      that is why he is my wild animal

      King Kong never ever tucks me away
      My King Kong never ever… any other ladies
      Up in the beat around my bend
      Here come King Kong again… over my vine
      and that is why he and I carry on
      Ooh ooh that is why he is my wild animal
      I love to play in his hair
      Shiny black big brown green eyes
      That’s all it takes for me to fantasize
      That’s all it takes for me to climb my King Kong
      King Kong, ooo, ooo, ooo, my little

        Song Title: Flippin’ Out

        Lyrics below

        Why don’t you come back to my vampire boudoir
        State your delight, the rest gets bizarre.
        Touch me here, touch me there.
        Ooo, when you touch, I let go of my whee!
        You’re that someone that drives me insane
        As if something got stuck in my vein.
        When you touch me I scream in delight,
        Hurry! Hurry! Touch me tonight.
        I’m flippin’ out! Yah! I’m flippin’ out! Ow ow ow out oooh!

        Ha-ha. You can swallow me all in one bite,
        ‘Creme de la Cocoa’ is what I taste like.
        Bite me here, ooh, swallow me there,
        I could follow and die without fear.

        You’re that someone who drives me insane,
        Kiss my neck with your sharp fangs and stay.
        If you kiss me I’ll scream in delight
        Hurry! Hurry! Touch me tonight.
        I’m flippin’ out! Yah! I’m flippin’ out! Ow ow ow out oooh!

        You’re that someone who drives me insane
        You are that man so in touch with my vein, ooh!
        If you catch me, I’ll sleep in delight
        Hurry! Hurry! Catch me tonight.
        I’m flippin’ out! Yah! I’m flippin’ out! Ow ow ow out oooh!
        Why don’t you come back to my vampire boudoir
        I am the vamp who bites the vampire.
        Vamp me here, vamp me there,
        If you love me I’ll swallow your spear!

        You’re that vampire who drives me insane
        Oooh, like that sharp fang that sucked on my vein
        When you bite me, I scream in delight
        Hurry! Hurry! Bite me right.
        I’m flippin’ out! Yah! I’m flippin’ out! Ow ow ow out oooh!

        I’m flippin’ out! I’m flippin’ out!

        Vamp. Short for Vanity.
        A woman who uses her charms and wiles to seduce
        Vampish! Vanity! I am vamp!
        A woman who practices seductiveness by magic spell!
        [ Backwards section: ]
        The fabulous!…. The fabulous… pocket steamer!
        Yes, the pocket steamer can be yours!
        What if we included….. hahaha!
        Yes folks, you get all this and much, much more!
        If only you buy Vanity’s album, Wild Animal,
        available at record stores everywhere.

        A fool there was, and you paid your coin,
        To a dark-eyed dame from the tender loin.
        You took me in, the West Coast town,
        And filled me UP, in a form-fit gown.
        Filled my eyes with Bella-la Donna,
        And said “Now, lady, forget your honor.
        For hence for now, you’re a scarlet scamp,
        The grandest, red-lipped, black-souled vamp.”
        So now I lie, awake in my tomb, awaiting the next….
        Kiss me my fool!…. BANG!

          Song Title: Samuelle

          Lyrics below

          Samuelle, this is your lover calling, Samuelle
          Samuelle, this is your lover calling
          Samuelle, do you belong to Marilyn?
          I know she could never love your heart like me
          I’m quite sure we belong together
          Oh Samuelle, you cannot tell a lie
          it echoes across the moon and the sky
          Valerie, Valerie, Valerie, this is your conscience calling
          Valerie, Valerie, Valerie, I don’t wanna hear ya
          I do recall carnivals were filled up with
          crazy guys and paper dolls
          Thought it would last forever

          Oh Samuelle, I’m running down the aisle
          wedding lace was written all over
          I really want you, I really do
          I really love you, rap on door
          rap on door, ring bell, ring bell
          naughty little thing, we may never know
          the prince and the showgirl
          wonders if never, ever
          Oh Samuelle, I cannot tell
          if I sing to you, will you ring my doorbell?
          Ring my doorbell, I really want you
          Ring my doorbell, I really do
          Ring my bell, I really love you
          Time will tell
          all those nights I sat up alone
          and stared at the phone
          well I’m calling my shadow, calling Samuelle
          I cannot let you go
          I’ve thrown all the snowballs I can throw
          Oh! Oh! Ooh hoo hoo
          I know you love me, you can have me if you want to

            Song Title: Pretty Mess

            Lyrics below

            Ahh…here we go again, falling on my bed and pulling on a pillow
            well I think you got what it takes to get me boiling like a kettle
            here everything’s boiling up
            I boil to the maximum, yeah
            well I do believe babe, you boil me bubbling
            you get me in so much trouble
            Ooh and baby someday soon
            I will take you there
            promise you the moon
            and then he pulled a seam and it went all the way

            (chorus)
            Ooh yeah, such a pretty mess
            he made such a pretty mess on my dress
            Ooh yeah, such a pretty mess
            oh such a pretty

            Here we go again, pulling on my hair
            I’m dripping like a hot tea
            I’m aware that if you drip it too hot
            it just might spill all over this lovely
            here everything’s boiling up
            I boil to the maximum, yeah
            well I do believe babe, you boil me bubbling
            you get me in double trouble
            Ooh and baby someday soon
            I will take you there
            promise you the moon
            and then I took a drink and it went all the way

            (chorus)
            Ooh yeah, such a pretty mess
            we made such a pretty mess of my dress, ooh yeah
            such a pretty mess
            oh such a pretty
            Here we go again crawlin’ through the kitchen, oh ho ho hum
            I bet you got what it takes to get me into a living room position

            Ooh and baby someday soon
            I will take you there
            promise me the moon
            and then he found a hallway that went all the way

            (chorus)
            Ooh yeah, such a pretty mess
            he made such a pretty mess on my dress, ooh yeah
            such a pretty mess
            oh such a pretty

              Lyrics below

              My captain states I have to wear the lace
              My captain himself repeated himself “Get it out!”
              I can! I shall!
              Well my love is written all over the papers
              Concentrate, “concentration can’t get it”
              Lo and be Ho the word is heard all over the station
              Are we havin’ fun? Oh so where do I find him?
              How do I find that long white ladder that leads to him now?
              How can I be saved?
              They call him decision “Get in”
              You want him. You take him but he’s not yours
              All of us know the Captain AKA Lieutenant, say
              “I’m prayin’ for you darlin'”

              Can’t get out and I definitely can’t get in
              So where do I hide to? How did I get myself into?
              I’m not crazy! “I’m crazy.” How can I escape?
              Expect adventure baby! Increase double tempo
              and maybe he’ll go all the way, maybe he won’t….
              Ho, hey day. Oh oh oh, expect adventure darlin’
              It’s an Alfred Hitchcock story it goes all the way.
              I go all the way Ho, expect adventure baby!
              Increase double, intake and maybe….
              He will break, break! Maybe he’ll Haaa, I don’t know
              They call him precision, “Get on”
              Oh! I want him, I’d take him but he’s not mine
              All of the time… the Captain AKA Lieutenant say
              “I’m ready for ya now”. Can’t get out and I definitely
              can’t get on. Oh baby you feel so strong.
              How did it take so long?
              It took forever baby never never enuf [sic]
              Ho, expect adventure lady influencing my intentions
              Crazy I go all the way, Ahu!
              I go all the way on.
              I’m goin’ crazy maybe
              Ahhh! I’m goin’ crazy maybe ahhhh!
              1,2,3,4 knock on my door and stay
              5,6,7,8 lay down and make me wait
              9 & 11 I think I lost my count

              1,2,3,4 knock on my door and stay
              Ohh! I’m goin’ crazy maybe
              5,6,7,8 lay down and make me beg!

                  Lyrics below

                  All of a sudden, you appear
                  Insatiable emotion in my mirror, hey!

                  (chorus #1)
                  You appear insatiable emotion
                  (Your choreography has imagination)
                  Baby, your poetry and motion
                  Ooh, you know I’m the best
                  (Who might you be, what’s your name?)
                  The Greatest!
                  You want to watch my thunderstorm
                  Ya gotta see my poppin’ corn
                  I participate, end of story
                  All of a sudden, you delay
                  Numerical emotion in my middle, hey!

                  (chorus #2)
                  You delay my numerical emotion
                  Baby don’t count on devotion
                  Girl, let’s give a rest
                  I gave more, you gave less
                  You’re anything but ordinary
                  And I’m getting your attention hard
                  Your body’s shooting X-ray bullets
                  Fire away, I’m unarmed
                  And all of a sudden, you push replay
                  (Replay)
                  Mechanical emotions in my middle, hey!

                  (chorus #3)
                  You display mechanical emotion
                  (Ahh you’re in my symphony)
                  Baby, in my orchestration
                  Oh, you keep me a wreck
                  (Fine! Why? Why? Why? I love you anyway)
                  Baby, I’m sick of this mess
                  (spoken French part)

                  (solo chorus by Morris)
                  You display mechanical emotion
                  Baby, in my orhcestration
                  Oh, you keep me a wreck
                  Baby, I’m sick of this mess
                  You display mechanical emotion
                  Baby, in my orchestration
                  Oh, you keep me a wreck
                  Baby, I’m sick of this mess

                    Great solo debut album. Flippin out is a masterpiece, totally unique. Strap on Robby Baby. Samuelle is another favorite. And the wonderful Pretty mess and it’s great video. All excellent tracks to an amazing unique album. It’s a shame the music video to Mechanical Emotion was never released.
