little miss emperor lyrics – iggy pop

you’re not giving an inch
you’re strung like wire
your open arms they flinch
joan crawford style
treated like a towel
inside you howl

on some dark concrete
midnight street
you’ve built an altar
that’s quite complete
your self control
is d*mned amazing
you’re trying hard
and i want you
little miss emperor

you really want to grow
and you’re alert, i know
but babies mostly drown
it’s a company town
cheat gods and joke
attack your n*ble ghost

i saw the best minds
of my generation
learn how to crawl
across our nation
conformity falls
like one wet blanket
look how we live
and i want you
little miss emperor
little miss emperor
trying to open doors
