LYRICS

Give you my word, you can take it
I'm as pure as the driven snow
I'll make a promise; I'll never break it
And nobody will ever know
I'm supposed to be a saint so I fake it
Yeah my stash is beginning to grow

Just look at me, I'm so easy
Dressed to kill, my teeth are clean(FILL 1)
I'm feeling good, I'm feeling sleazy(FILL 2)
I'm looking at your peaches and cream
Trust me I'm yours for the taking
I've got the biggest head you've ever seen

Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water.
Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water.

Well have you heard? Would you believe it?
Do you realise how much I know?(FILL 3)
I could tell you the biggest story(FILL 4)
There's no limit to the seed that I sow
Yeah the suit has a hand so I shake it
My greed is beginning to show

Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water
Don't you know I'd do anything... to keep my head above water

I'd climb the highest mountain; I'd swim the deepest ocean
I'd girdle the globe just to find the magic potion
That could change everything that could set me on fire
Bring me down easy on wings of desire
Oh to be alive, I'd suck to survive
I'd do anything; to keep my head above water

Head above water
Head above water
