      Well you'd better not tell I've had a good night
      Me and this bird she's a bit of alright
      Dancing to the sounds as the arches get searched
      She is the business for a bit of old skirt

      It's so dirty when it's in the right mood
      Give it some brandy and some chinese food
      Take her for a spin with your stereo jack
      Tell her she's the best girl you've ever had
      Give it some gold to put round its neck
      Bet here old man puts you on the deck
      But its so dirty with me - it so dirty with me
      Its so dirty with me - its so dirty with me

      Well you'd better watch out here comes a tornado
      You'll end up looking like a mashed potato
      If her old man gets word of what's going on here
      You'll end up at the bottom of someone's next beer

      Well I've got a bud ain't frightened by shooters
      So lets have a drink for a couple of troopers
      No her old man won't know I've been giving it some
      Unless you tell him the news but we know that ain't done

  • Chords
  • FROM THE ALBUM: Cool For Cats.
  • COMPILATIONS: Up the Junction.
  • OTHER APPEARANCES: The B-side to "Up the Junction".
  • The lyric being written in the first person with a less-than-enlightened narrator and the female lead of the piece being the "it" of the title, this song was one of the key pieces of evidence in the allegations of sexism levelled at the band in the early stages of their career.
