Vestal Virginia, ain’t got a bad thought in ya
You’re a bastard
Mean as a killer, instinct that’s within ya
You’re a bastard
Laughs like a drain and it messes up my brain
‘Cause you know I like the pain of never knowing
Space cow, I’ll chew the bad blood runnin’ through ya
Kiss you as you hit the floor ’cause you don’t even know that
You’re a bastard

There’s a crisis in the kitchen, but that don’t stop your bitchin’
You’re a bastard
You got that yellowjacket touch with the stings that hurt so much You’re such a bastard
Flirting in the shadows, aimin’ all those little arrows
You’re as shallow as the gallows you got me in to, yeah
Voo-doo dolls gonna line the room, handcuffs glinting in the gloom
One day you’ll find that hidden door, inside everyone screams that You’re a bastard

You twist me til I’m lame, then you spin the coin again
You’re such a bastard
You’re so naturally perverse, you ain’t even gotta rehearse
You’re such a bastard
Fly like a witch, while I’m running in some ditch
Why don’t you make the switch that takes me over
My prison is your brain, your prisoner’s insane
You’ve got all the keys, you can break the chains
But you don’t even take the blame you bastard

(Bastard, bastard)
I’m enjoying that lately, you know, just the beginnings
(Bastard)
The agony and the ecstacy meeting at the middle of my mouth
The agony and the ecstacy, can’t spit it out
Sometimes on a rainy day I draw you
Hope for love Ian Hunter Bastard with Lyrics in Description
