Lyrics

Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber

Crawling on my hands and knees
like some rubber cockroach in a striptease
I can see inside your mind now
I know just what you want
And how
You know just what I want
so do it…do it do
The voice inside your head
Listen to it
Listen to it….listen

Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber

Rubber, leather, p.v.c
wrapped and trapped inside
your fantasy
cybersex queen made for action
pay the price for satisfaction

Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber
Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber mmbopbop

Crawling on my hands and knees
like some rubber cockroach in a striptease
fetish kitten come to daddy no
trust me come to daddy
Domination penitration
shes my little plastic
play station
Ac/dc s&m discipline
goodnight amen goodnight amen
just use your head

Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber
Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber yeah

Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber
Hey baby scratch your number-on my electric cucumber
Crawling on my hands and knees yeah
Ac/dc s&m…..s&m
eat me beat me treat me
like your favorite backdoor whore
eat me beat me treat me
like your favorite backdoor whore
Crawling on my hands and knees
like some rubber cockroach in a striptease
come and have a blow
if you think I’m hard enough

come and have a blow
if you think im hard enough
come and have a go
