Lyrics Edit

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da, la da da da da)

Nothing is provocative
Anymore, even for kids
No room for imagining
'Cause everyone's seen everything

Question what the TV tells you
Question what a Pop-star sells you
Question mom and question dad
Question good and question bad

If history could set you free
From who you were supposed to be
If sex in our society
Didn't tell a girl who she would be
'Cause all my life I've tried to fight
What history has given me, me

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)

If women were religiously
Recognized sexually
We wouldn't have to feel the need
To show our ass, it's to feel free

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt
Sold my soul and yeah the truth hurt
Tired image of a star
Acting naughtier than we really are

If history could set you free
From who you were supposed to be
If sex in our society
Didn't tell a guy who he should be
'Cause all my life I've tried to fight
What history has given me, me

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da, la da da da da)

All my life I've felt it deep inside of me
All this time was fighting for what I believe
All my life I've tried to hide
What history has given me, me

If history could set you free
From who you were supposed to be
If sex in our society
Didn't tell a guy who he should be
'Cause all my life I've tried to fight
What history has given me, me

Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da da da)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (Yeah)
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex (La da da, la da da da da)
