        How do you think it feels
        when you're speeding and lonely, come here baby
        How do you think it feels
        when all you can say is if only

        If only I had a little
        if only I had some change, come here baby
        If only, if only, only

        How do you think it feels
        and when do you think it stops

        How do you think it feels
        when you've been up for five days, come down here mama
        Hunting around always, ooohhh
        'cause you're afraid of sleeping

        How do you think it feels
        to feel like a wolf and foxy
        How do you think it feels

        To always make love by proxy, uh
        how do you think it feels
        And when do you think it stops
        when do you think it stops
