Quicksilver (Original)

Very loosely (more verse): AC/DC saved in the nick of time

She’s rare and dangerous!
Blindin’ you with her liquid love.
Red-hot. Mercurial.
She’s a firebrand, she’s raptorial.
She’s gonna burn you up – she’s unforgettable.

She plays fast and loose – makes the world go round.
She’s fickle and flighty – always up and down.
She’s temperamental – ‘n’ quick on the trigger
You ain’t gotta hold: She slips through your fingers.

She’s heavy metal: ((Litte) Miss) Quicksilver!

A venenmous inclination.
Slippery when wet, is her reputation.
Just a taste of her’s too much!
Under your skin and into your blood.
Hold on tight ‘cos the ride will be rough/tough/good.



She’s a slip of a thing – she doesn’t walk, she glides.
Gotta silver-tongue – ‘n’ as bright as the sun shines. She’ll:
steal up on you,
steal the thunder,
steal your heart,
pillage and plunder!

You know your playing with fire,
but if you catch her eye, it’s well worth (your) while.
You gotta tiger by the tail.
Try to hang on tight, but if all else fails:
You can go at one another tooth and nail! (one last time)

Blowin’ like a hurricane!
If she blows your way you’ll never be the same.
‘n’ just like the wind, she can’t be caged.
She’s hot. Mercurial.
She’s gonna change your life, she’s raptorial.
Like a fire-brand – she’s unforgettable.
Red-hot. Mercurial.
She’s a firebrand, she’s raptorial.
Leave you scarred to the heart – she’s unforgettable.
