Ah no!

am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day
live 4 the organ that am grinding
'll die but won't go away

Gett off {repeat}
am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day
live 4 the organ that am grinding
'll die but won't go away
Ooh, wait a minute
think U better trip on this
Ooh, wait a minute
think U better trip on this

was on my way 2 another room
When an image of U sweetly
Appeared N the mirror
Perhaps U recall
U & were neatly
N the middle of a crystal ball
& it now serves as a reminder on the wall
Of U & , the organ grinder
N the greatest concert of them all

am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day
live 4 the organ 'm grinding
( live 4 the organ that am grinding)
'll die but will not go away
('ll die but won't go away)

Did U know that still have ur stockings?
keep 'em N a drawer next 2 ur brassiere
Come hither, my sweet
Lend me ur attention
Come hither, lend me ur ear
do believe my piano was stolen
do believe that U want me near
Well, can deal with a sucker if he's N ur mouth
But can't deal with insincere
am the 1 that lives N ur heart
U love me no matter what U say
Swear U don't miss the organ grinder
Grinding on U every day

am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day (Check this out)
Gett off {repeat}
Ooh, wait a minute
think U better trip on this

took all the pictures U gave me
& placed them right under my bed
& pumped & pumped
Till the 'gasm so much as jumped
From my feet 2 the top of my head - oh boy!

am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day
live 4 the organ that 'm grinding
( live 4 the organ that am grinding)
'll die but will not go away
('ll die but won't go away)
Uh...
Gett off {repeat}
Ooh, wait a minute
think U better trip on this

Like a puppy, licked ur devotion
From ur neck, from ur eyes, from ur ears
When U cried, became ur emotion
& if U ever cry like that again
'll B here
Gett off {repeat}

Cuz am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day
live 4 the organ 'm grinding
( live 4 the organ that am grinding)
'll die but won't go away
Not even...

Peace 2 everybody
Ganster power
Who turn the mother out? Ask somebody
{repeat chants}
Eat me
Ow!

am Violet, the organ grinder
& grind all the live long day
live 4 the organ that am grinding
'll die but won't go away (Ooh)
