Lyrics
I been a bitch since way back when
they been calling me crazy since I was ten
I never bought what they told me to dream
A two car garage and the kids that scream
Not that that's wrong it ain't what I mean
I'm just attracted to things that are a bit obscene
attracted to things that are a bit obscene

I feel a need oh to just keep rockin'
Don't wanna do too much talkin'
Talk is cheap it always will be
It just makes ya weak like a good girl should be
Not that that's wrong it ain't what I mean
I'm just attracted to things that are a bit obscene
attracted to things that are a bit obscene

I wanna party , wanna make you scream
So hot for ya baby won't ya dance with me
I hope ya like your lovers lean and mean because
You got yourself one fire machine, baby fire machine
You got yourself one fire machine, Hey !

My Mama used to smoke a big cigar
daddy used to race a mean stock car
unconventional as this may seem
They taught this little devil how to dream
and one day I'm gonna do it in a limosine
Cause I'm attracted to things that are a bit obscene
attracted to things that are a bit obscene

and I've discovered something quite amazing baby
the fact that I'm strange probably saved me
Cause I've come to see things differently hey,
and I don't really care if ya don't like me
Not that that's wrong it ain't what I mean
I'm just attracted to things that are a bit obscene
attracted to things that are a bit obscene

Everybody's got to do what they do
Hey ya know ya got to be who ya be
I don't believe that everybody
really wants to be a carbon copy, hey a carbon copy,
Hey ! Do ya wanna be a carbon copy

I'm just attracted to things that are a bit obscene
attracted to things that are a bit obscene !
