Expert lover, my baby
Have U ever had a crystal ball? {repeat lines}
Ooh...
Ooh-ah-ooh
Ooh

As bombs explode around us
& hate advances on the right
The only thing that matters, baby
The love that we make 2night
As little babies N make-up
Terrorize the western world
The only thing that matters, baby
Is love between a boy & girl

Oh expert lover, my baby
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Undercover, no maybe
All 4 fun, fun 4 all
Ooh

can't remember my baby's voice (Oh)
Cuz she ain't talkin' no more
Only the sound of love & prayer (Oh)
Echo from the yellow floor, yellow floor, huh
She's sayin', "Dear Jesus, save us from temptation
Dear Jesus, save us from hell
Save us from the madness that threatens us all
Can U hear us?
It's hard 2 tell
N Ur name we pray"

Expert lover, my baby
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Undercover, no maybe
All 4 fun, fun 4 all
Ooh-ah-ooh

As soldiers draw swords of sorrow (Oh)
My baby draws pictures of sex (Yes she does)
All over the walls N graphic detail - sex! (Oh)

Everybody say it now
Expert lover, huh, my baby
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Under, undercover, ha, no maybe
All 4 fun and fun 4 all
Ah ooh

Rip it! Ouch! Uh
Expert lover, my baby
Ever had a crystal ball?
Uh
Expert lover, my baby
Ever had a crystal ball?
Crystal ball
Expert
My baby...
Kiss me, lick me, trick me, whoa!
Oh yeah yeah
C'mon... won't U come on?

Expert lover, huh, my baby
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Don't U wanna?
What my drummer wanna say? {repeat}
Yeah! Drummer
Tell me what the bass says
Woo
Yeah
Oh, ow

Alright (Ow!)
Expert lover, my baby is alright (No...!)
Alright
Undercover, my baby is alright
Listen 2 the guitar play
Hey!
Wait a minute now
It's groovy
Ouch!
Guitar, guitar
C'mon now

Oh yeah
An elderly couple walk N the park
(My baby licks me fast)
Quietly missiles cut thru the dark
(Her mama watch aghast)
A ghastly blast levels the man
(C'mon, baby, do me fast)
The woman dies N the aftermath
(C'mon, c'mon)
Mathematical gas

Sisters & brothers N the purple underground
Find peace of mind with the pop sound
It seems when we're N danger
Everything gets black
Don't U want a ball?
Maybe not
Expert, expert

Uh
Ooh wee
Darlin'
Darlin', U know U want a crystal ball
Crystal ball
don't know, have 2 ask my mommy 1st

As bombs explode around U
& hate advances on ur right
The only thing U can B sure of
Is the love we make 2night
{scream}

Expert lover, my baby
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Take off ur clothes, baby
Come on, get the crystal ball
Oh expert lover, my baby (Oh)
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Come on, take off ur clothes, baby (Oh)
Come on, get the crystal ball
Come on!
Expert lover, my baby (Oh)
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
Oh my baby... (Oh)
Come on, get the... crystal ball
Haha, oh
Have U ever had a crystal ball?
