Body parts are nice
I can close my eyes
And think about your lips
They quiver to the tips
Of the fingers on my hand
I am the man
with some secret plans
I need to carry out

You are my mission
Impossible at first
But like cold fission
I feel an energy
Flow, flow, let it all go
And close your eyes
Body parts are nice

What makes you warm?
The sun on your skin
Or a summer storm?
Rain? Rain on your face
Rain that you can taste
Slowly as it drips
Down your lips
Like a kiss
From the one you love

What makes you hot?
Something that you want but you havenít got
Isnít that the way
Just a game to play
All day
Well, I say
You can bring the ice
But sweating will suffice
Your body parts are nice

Do you believe in God?
Maybe sheís a fraud
But sheís so cute
In her birthday suit
And her go-go boots
And when Iím not awake
I can see her shake
Every step she takes
It makes me happy

And then itís getting late
Let me call it fate
That youíre still around
Lost and found
Like a lunchbox
Let us break the bread
Pig out Ďtil weíre dead
Give me chicken thighs
Sweet potato pies
Body parts are nice

What makes you hot?
Something that you want but you havenít got
Isnít that the way
Just a game to play
All day
Well, I say
You can bring the ice
But sweating will suffice
Your body parts are nice
