I'm so hot for her, I'm so hot (on fire) for her
I'm so hot for her and she's so cold

I'm the burning bush, I'm the burning fire
I'm the bleeding volcano

Yes, I tried re-wiring her, I tried re-firing her
I think her engine is permanently stalled
She's so cold, she's so cold
She's so cold, cold, cold like a tombstone

She's so cold, she's so cold
She's so cold, cold, cold like an ice cream cone
She's so cold, she's so cold
When I touch her, my hand just froze

Yeah, I'm so hot for her, I'm so hot for her
I'm so hot for her and it grieves me so
Put your hand on the heat, put your hand on the heat
Come on, baby, let's go

She's so cold, she's so cold, cold
She's so cold but she's beautiful, though

Yeah, she's so cold

She's so cold, she's so cold
I think she was born in an arctic zone
She's so cold, she's so cold
When I touch her, my hand just froze

She's so cold, she's so goddamn cold
She's so cold, cold, cold, she's so cold

Who would believe you were a beauty indeed?
When the days get shorter and the nights get long
Light fades and the rain comes
Nobody will know

When you're old, when you're old
Nobody will know
That you was a beauty, a sweet, sweet beauty
A sweet, sweet beauty but stone, stone cold

You're so cold, you're so cold, cold, cold
You're so cold, you're so cold

I'm so hot for you, I'm so hot for you
I'm so hot for you and you're so cold
I'm the burning bush, I'm the burning fire
I'm the bleeding volcano
