There's also an alternative, guitar and vocal only version of Live Wire, which I've added below...



Live Wire was created right at the start of the 21st century, as a comedy song about a girlfriend with a tendency to give off powerful electric shocks. I played the song at live venues through the noughties (in the alternative format), and it became the most popular number in the set. It was first recorded in the first half of 2000, but the main band version above comes from 2007.

LYRICS

VERSE

First time I touched you I got a shock
My hair went stiffer than my British upper lip
I'm always mesmerised by you
It's just a good job I've got these rubber shoes

CHORUS

You're a live wire
You're just a beacon of desire
It's a romance
Gonna make me dance

VERSE

We found a scientist based in Leicester
He measured your voltage with a multi-tester
He held you tight while I took a reading
Then I had convulsions and I just stopped breathing

CHORUS

You're a live wire
You're just a beacon of desire
It's a romance
Gonna make me dance

VERSE

And though you're charging me by the hour
You come in handy when they cut the power
Like no other you relax me
We watch television in the taxi

CHORUS

You're a live wire
You're just a beacon of desire
It's a romance
Gonna make me dance
