Lyrics

All the streets are crammed with things
Eager to be held
I know what hands are for
And I'd like to help myself

You ask me the time
But I sense something more
And I would like to give you
What I think you're asking for
You handsome devil

Oh, you handsome devil
Let me get my hands on your mammary glands
And let me get your head in the conjugal bed
I say, I say, I say

I crack the whip and you skip
But you deserve it
You deserve it, deserve it, deserve it

A boy in the bush
Is worth two in the hand
I think I can help you get through your exams

Oh, you handsome devil
Oh, Let me get my hands on your mammary glands
And let me get your head in the conjugal bed
I say, I say, I say

I crack the whip and you skip
But you deserve it
you deserve it, deserve it, deserve it

And when we're in your scholarly room
who will swallow whom?
when we're in your scholarly room
who will swallow whom?

You handsome devil
Oh, let me get my hands on your mammary glands
And let me get your head in the conjugal bed
I say, I say, I say

There's more to life than books, you know
But not much more.
Oh, there's more to life than books, you know
But not much more, not much more
Oh, you handsome devil
Oh, you handsome devil
