Lyrics:
Well I got me a lover as stubborn as a weed
But he met his match on the day he met me
Even when I paddle my boat upshore
Well the river keep on floating me right back to your door
No telling when the lightning strike
The way you make me feel, I gotta hold on tight

I got a live wire
I got a live wire (Live wire, yeah)
Some people just built that way
Never looking back at the mess they make

Live wire
I got a live wire (Got a live wire)
You never know what the cat’ll drag in
This bird’s getting out of it’s cage again
Got a live wire
I’ve got a live wire

Well I got me a joint in the middle of town
Stay up all night when my friends come ’round
You know it’s all gonna change when the screen door slams
There comes a wild wind blowing you back into my hands
Next thing you know your hair is standing on end
Circuit starts to blow me off my feet again

I got a live wire
I got a live wire (Ooh)
Some people just built that way
Never looking back at the mess they make

I got a live wire (Live, live wire)
I got a live wire (Live wire)
Never know what the cat’ll drag in
But this bird’s getting out of it’s cage again
Got a live wire (Ooh)
I got a live wire

G’on girl, do your own thing, Michelle

My love for you is a hurricane
Come crashing on me like a runaway train
My love for you is a house on fire
Well I’m burnin’ up with a strange desire
Ooh

I got a live wire
I got a live wire
Some people just built that way
Never looking back at the mess they make

I got a live wire (I got a live wire, yeah)
I got a live wire (I’ve got a live wire)
You never know what the cat’ll drag in (Never know)
But this bird’s getting out of it’s cage again
I got a live wire (I got a live wire)
I got a live wire (I got a, I got a live wire)

Some people just built that way
Never looking back at the mess they make
I got a live wire (Got a live wire)
Live wire (Hey)
Live (Live, live, live wire)
Live (Ooh)

Sing it ladies
Live wire (Take you so long)
Live wire
Talkin’ ’bout live
I got a live wire (Oh)
I got a live wire (Yeah)
Live wire (I got a live, a live wire)
I got a live (I got a live, live)
I got a live (Live)
I got a live (Yeah)
I got a live wire (Mmm)
I got a live (Live)
I got a live wire (Go Mavis)
Takes it so long to fire, yes it will
