Peek-A-Boo

Siouxsie and the Banshees

Creeping up the backstairs
slinking into dark stalls
shapeless and slumped in bath chairs
furtive eyes peep out of holes
she has many guises
she'll do what you want her to
playing dead and sweet submission
cracks the whip deadpan on cue

Peek-A-Boo Peek-A-Boo
Peek-A-Boo Peek-A-Boo

Reeking like a pigsty
peeling back and gagging free
flaccid ego in your hand
chokes on dry tears, can you understand?
She's jeering at the shadows
sneering behind a smile
lunge and thrust to pout and pucker
into the face of the beguiled.

Peek-A-Boo Peek-A-Boo
Golly Jeepers
Where'd you get those peepers?
peepshow, creepshow
Where did you get those eyes?

Strobe lights pump and flicker
dry lips crack out for more.
"Come bite on this rag doll baby
that's right now hit the floor."
They're sneaking out the back door
she get's up from all fours
rhinestone fools and silver dollars
curdle into bitter tears
