It’s at times like this, the great heaven knows
that we wish we had not so many clothes
So let’s loosen up with a playful tease
like all lovers did through the centuries

We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
a-ha-ha

When it gets so hot, the end of the day
You may find your clothes getting in the way
If a pretty dress hides your true desire
Fold it nice and slow, throw it on the fire

We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
(a-ha-ha)

We don’t need to see what the butler saw
Or a mirrored room with a mirrored floor
All those sneaky looks, gazing down on you
Are no substitute for our rendezvous

We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
a-ha-ha

It’s at times like this, the great heaven knows
That we wish we had not so many clothes
So let’s loosen up with a playful tease
Like all lovers did through the centuries

If you think it’s cheap or a bit risqué
Please don’t say a word I’ll just slip away
I am not a man who believes in lies
Like an octopus with big x-ray eyes

Don’t freeze up girl, you’re looking quite a sight
Be generous, I want it all tonight
(ooh ooh)

We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?
We’re just following ancient history
If I strip for you, will you strip for me?

Don’t freeze up girl, you’re looking quite a sight
Be generous, I want it all tonight

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
