Mean Streak

This song is by Deep Purple and appears on the album Perfect Strangers (1984).

She come home last night, rotten rolling drunk
She talk no sense, but she sound good so she think
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 through the door
Because one smile from those eyes
And I stand there paralyzed
And she says
Beg for more, get down sucka, you know what I like
Oh hang on.
