Perhaps I should apologize for coming on so strong at first
I mean, I didn't even know a thing about your mind,  
Or who you were, or how you are, and what is worse; 
I'm still lusting just to get our flesh combined-- 
Okay, so I'm a brute.

And I wish that I had some excuse for thinking such a shocking thing 
As making long hot love to you all night and all day, 
After all, we're only strangers passing-- ah, but here's the thing: 
I can't help it that I want you anyway, 
I mean, you're pretty cute. 
 
        But now there's all these social mores that we're 
        Supposed to adhere to 
        Before I can obtain you 
        I don't need those rules, I just need you. 
        So c'mon, tell me what you're gonna do: 
        Maybe you have needs to deal with too. 

Why should I apologize because you are my kind of woman? 
Do we really have to say so extremely much 
About who we are? or what we do? not really, when we can 
Say it so much better first by touch.  
And you know that's right! 
 
So I just had to grab you quick before somehow you slipped away
Details to be worked out later on (and on and on)
Like who we are and what we want, and who's to say
That my lust for you is right or wrong--
Or plain old love at first sight?
 
        So tell me, is it lust or is it love?
        Because love at first sight should be all right for you! 
        And tell me, is it love or is it lust?
        Because lust at first sight feels all right too!
