Sometimes flattery is like sex
building me up, turning me on
making me feel real good
Sometimes it's addicting
I can't get enough
and the less I seek it out
the more I get it
When you're not so desperate
people are more willing to offer it
When you play it cool
it draws more attention
Sometimes flattery and sex are congruent
in other words
the more I'm flattered
the greater the probability of sex
The moral is
never put me down
if you want to turn me on
building me up 
is often all it takes
