Oingo Boingo - Elementary Physics Lyrics




One, two, three!

I wish I could say something
To make you understand
I wish I could get through to you
For just a minute or two

It's really very simple
I want your body now
I'll get to know you later
We'll work it out somehow

And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight

It's elementary physics
It's simple chemistry
It doesn't take computers
To know what you mean to me

And I need you tonight

It's popular mechanics
That keeps me up at night
It's always pumps and pullies
That makes me long for you by my side

If you would just believe me
If you would just give in
Are motives so important, anyhow?
If I could only speak my mind
Without you running away
If I could just convince you, please, to stay

And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight

It's really very simple
I want your body now
I'll get to know you later
We'll work it out somehow

It's elementary physics
Beginning calculus
First term biology
What will become of you and me

If you would just believe me
If you would just give in
Are motives so important, anyhow?
If I could only speak my mind
Without you running away
If I could just convince you, please, to stay

And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight
And I need you tonight

Need you tonight
And I need you tonight
Need you tonight
And I need you tonight

Need you tonight
And I need you tonight
Need you tonight
And I need you tonight

And I need you tonight

  1. Chuck Cohen

    Anyone have a date on this? Sounds '81 or '82- circa NTF. Thanks +Claytron830000000000 for posting. Coming back to my Boingo days and realizing again how good they were. SMH

  2. SuzyBear Heart

    Finding an Oingo Boingo song I'd never heard before has made my day! Thank you for posting!

    Claytron830000000000

    Heck yeah, i have 3 folders of unreleased Boingo songs, this is one of my favorites... YW

    SuzyBear Heart

    +Claytron830000000000. I think you are my new best friend! I look forward to browsing the rest of your videos. The more Boingo in the world the better! How did you get your hands on all this unreleased treasure?

    Claytron830000000000

    :) havent uploaded anything in a long time, mostly underground hip hop... There are 3 "albums" called "Forbidden Boingo" Volumes 1, 2, and 3. search around for them online, people have uploaded other songs from them to youtube also... I downloaded them on Soulseek a while back...

  3. Highland804

    This is a cool song...thanks for posting.  Would be nice to have remastered versions of some of these unreleased rarities.

    Urine Speaks Louder than Words

    Want this so bad.... Unfortunately the demand for Nightmare Before Christmas unreleased songs is much higher, so I'd assume those would release first if at all.

  4. Max Devo

    I happen to own the album this came on, 'Marching in Time'. The thing is... I own copy 888 of 888.
    I'm not joking.

  5. THExViCExSHOW

    Yeah, I got into oingo boingo threw my mom back when I was really little. Didn't really listen to them in depth till I was 14/15.. But last year around my 22nd birthday, I discovered this and All The Pieces off of a discography I downloaded.. It was a shock to my senses...

  6. Sandie B

    @ladyssnape I take it back. I just realized I've been a fan for 27 years....

    SL Barbieri

    34 now, huh old me?

  7. Sandie B

    I've listened to this song - no kidding - 12 times within two days. I fricking LOVE IT!!! Been a Boingo fan for 23 years and just found it yesterday. It didn't take long for this song to become one of my Holy Grails...

  8. Claytron830000000000

    @MrGziss Nice, glad to hear from you and to have you on here :)

  9. MrGziss

    @Claytron830000000000 Non idiotic hip hop...true dat!
    i think i heard of Busdriver from your page. props. i love my (synth-based) 80's music too.

  10. Claytron830000000000

    @MrGziss you are very lucky, i was too young to go to their concerts (born in 83') but they are tied as my favorite band up there with Rage Against the Machine, besides a few other bands and 80's music, im into Underground/Non idiotic hip hop...

  11. MrGziss

    great tune. ive met these guys..few times . =)
