Mean Streak

(Blackmore, Gillan, Glover)

She came home last night rotten rolling drunk
She talk no sense but she sound good so she thunk
So I reached over and said hello
Is there some planet you'd care to go
And she said Venus on the rocks

She got a mean streak
Black mamba don't compete
She got a mean streak
Temptation bitter sweet

She drives me crazy gets inside my brain
She spend my money down a drain
So I roll over for my reward
How much can I afford
And she says
Just a little more

I can't take this no more
I tried so hard but I can't get thru' the door
Because one smile from those eyes
And I stand there paralysed
And she says
Beg for more get down sucka you know what I like
Oh hang on
