Black Sheep

From the album Natalie Merchant

Oh, it’s no secret you know my every weakness. Oh, haven’t the strength now, not enough to waste tonight. Oh, spark the fire, tinderbox of desire. Oh, Lord have mercy, the thirst I feel tonight. I can see that you can see my eyes. Black sheep up on the fence, you’re a naughty little boy and you make me tense. Prodigal son, won’t you come on home. The door’s open wide, take a look inside, take a look inside.

Oh, my hands are tied now so you’ve gotta decide now. See, I just can’t take it. Can’t you see that I’m breaking? I can see— Black sheep up on the fence, you make me tense. Prodigal son, won’t you come on home. The door’s open wide, take a look inside, take a look inside.

Bah, bah black sheep up on the fence, you’re a naughty little boy and you make me tense. Prodigal son, won’t you come on home. The door’s open wide, take a look inside, take a look inside.
