lyrics

I saw her feet from the bathroom stall
And when she came out she stood six feet tall
I looked her over, searched her for clues
What really got me was those sexy shoes

And all I want is to catch your eye and pull you in
By the hooks on your skin
And all I want is to know your name so that tomorrow
We can begin again
And all I want is you, in those sexy shoes

Bartender, give her a drink
I slid her a smoke and a light to think
“A Snake in the Grass” with those blue eyes to glow
I’ve got to find out everything she knows

And all I want is that cigarette
To taste the lipstick from her lips
And all I want is that Snake in the Grass
To taste the spit from her kiss
And all I want is you, in those sexy shoes
And all I want is you, to be my lover, too

I held her close, couldn’t let go
Started talking to everybody she knows
And soon those sexy shoes were on my feet
In the palm of my hand without skipping a beat

And all I want is to hold you tight and breathe your breath
Right into my life
And all I want is to hear my name from your lips
Again and again
And all I want is you, in those sexy shoes
And all I want is you, to break my heart in two
