When You Ask Me First chronicles a
mans difficulty with relinquishing control in
the bedroom. Being on the receiving end of someone
elses passion can be a humbling and upsetting
experience, but if someone wants to make love with
us, we must be desireable, right? This songs
good for discussing expectations, control, and
When You Ask Me First
I love to do it Baby
But you only make it worse
I just don't get excited
When you go and ask me first
So don't touch me where I'm ticklish
And don't sit on my lap
And don't ask me politely Baby
It makes me feel trapped
Cause when you chase me, Darlin'
It really turns me off
I've tried so hard to tell you,
But I guess I'm getting soft,
So please, just sit and smile
With helpless soulful eyes
Admiring me while
I run my finger up your thighs
Then I kiss you,
And I breathe heavy in your ear
Then you should whisper "Take me! Take me!"
And could you make it sound sincere?
When I start to change positions
Like the pictures in the book
And use a couple mirrors
So I can see how neat we look
You start to change positions too,
In ways I've never seen!
And you kiss with your eyes open!
And you laugh, and yell, and scream!
You used to be more normal
You liked it face-to-face
But now you're going crazy
And you like it anyplace!
You said I could be on top,
You said you understood,
But all last night you wouldn't stop!
You busted it for good!
I love to do it Baby
When everything is right
But I think I feel my headache
Coming on again tonight.
