Commentary

Comments from the “Natural Selection” liner notes (by Mark Seymour):

It’s okay for a bloke to sing, “If you say you want me, I won’t say no,’ Quite manly in fact. People definitely won’t get the wrong idea.

 

Lyrics

I know, I know
She’s gonna go this morning
No sun will shine today
And this body’s feeling strained and dispossessed
Full of fear and trembling for her
Her last words to go away
Yeeeeh

But blind faith’s trying to tell me it isn’t over
Tell me it do not have to be
And storm water’s weeping on my bedroom window
Blow me up and throw me up and

Please, come on and please me
Tease, come on and tease me
Please, come on and please me
Come on and tease me

If you say you want me
I won’t say no
‘Cause nothing’s gonna pacify, satisfy
That rattlin’ window

If you say you want me
I won’t say no
‘Cause nothing’s gonna pacify, satisfy
That rattlin’ window

I know, I know
She’s gonna go this morning.
No sun will shine today
And this body’s feeling strained and dispossessed
Full of fear and trembling for her
Her last words to go away

But blind faith’s
Trying to tell me it isn’t over
Tell me it do not have to be
Storm water’s weeping on my bedroom window
Throw me up and blow me up and

Please, come on and please me
Tease, come on and tease me
You gotta tease me

If you say you want me, I won’t say no
‘Cause nothing’s gunna pacify, satisfy, pacify, satisfy, pacify, satisfy
That rattling window
