Let's Misbehave

You could have a great career
And you should, yes you should
Only one thing stops you dear
You're too good, way too good

If you want a future, darlin'
Why don't you get a past?
'Cause that fateful moment's comin' at last

We're all alone, no chaperone
Can get our number
The world's in slumber
Let's misbehave

There's something wild about you child
That's so contagious
Let's be outrageous
Let's misbehave

When Adam won Eve's hand
He wouldn't stand for teasin'
He didn't care about those apples out of season

They say that spring means just one thing
To little lovebirds
We're not above birds
Let's misbehave

It's getting late and while I wait
My poor heart aches on
Why keep the brakes on?
Let's misbehave

I feel quite sure un peu d'amour
Would be attractive
While we're still active
Let's misbehave

You know my heart is true
And you say you for me care
Somebody's sure to tell
But what the heck do we care?

They say that bears have love affairs
And even camels
We're merely mammals
Let's misbehave
