Cheetah Tongue Lyrics

The Wombats
[Chorus]
I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

[Verse 1]
You won me over
My orange cola got black flamingoes crying for ya
Well I'll see you later
I could be your faker
My hands shake like jellyfish when you're near

[Chorus]
I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

[Verse 2]
You're a hammer, sweet firecracker
Stumbling through Chinatown
Liar, liar, my house is on fire
Somewhere between Chinatown and here

[Chorus]
I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last

[Verse 3]
Come a little closer, it's alright
I'll be your character with flaws tonight
Come a little closer, my firefly
You're not the only one who doesn't want to be alone tonight

[Chorus]
I cut off my head and my cheetah tongue
I can't think straight and my mouth is numb
Don't shut your eyes till we fade to black
Cause maybe this time the good stuff could last
