All you little sex-machines
Why is it you always get me wrong ?
When I’m ready
I sing you by the big-eyed blues
‘Cause big-eyed girls are better left unsung
Do you get it ?
Do you get it ?

All you little sweet dolphine
Adapt me, draw me up your culture scene
‘Cause your niece said
But your niece said
And I just threw my harp away
I just threw my blues away
And I’ll just throw my life away,
B ut keep my head on straight

‘Cause my wife Jan – ain’t gonna like it !
My wife Jan – ain’t gonna like it !
My wife Jan – ain’t gonna like it !
If I take it off today… no way

All you little sex-machines
Why is it you always get me wrong ?
When I’m ready
And I’m ready

Sing me by the big-eyed blues
‘Cause big-eyed girls are better left unsung
Do you get it ?
Do you get it ?

‘Cause I just threw my harp away
And I just threw my blues away
And I’ll just throw my life away
But keep that head on straight

‘Cause my wife Jan – ain’t gonna like it !
My wife Jan – ain’t gonna like it !
My wife Jan – ain’t gonna like it !

Everybody is talking about things
I just cannot really do
They just don’t understand
As a boy, what I am attracted to

All you little sex-machines
Why is it you always get me wrong ?
When I’m ready
And I’m ready

I’ll sing you by the big-eyed blues’
Cause big-eyed girls are better left unsung
Do you get it ?
Do you get it ?
