Splash A Little Water On It is a track from the Jane’s Addiction album The Great Escape Artist.

Lyrics

Oh I have to tip toe around so as not to make
A loud sound
Ooh
Oh what you put her through, look at her, try
And not to wake up the girl
No
What was she thinking trying to keep up with
You, every habit you have?
Ooh
It’s cause she loves you so, don’t tell her she’s
Not looking so good
No

Just splash a little water on it
See what you’re working with
Splash a little water on it
And see if it comes alive
Last night almost all went up in smoke
You cannot choke without them knowing
You keep on going

We’ve been drinking and smoking til, 4, 5, or 6
In the morning
Ooh
I take a splash of water to bring me around
And get going
Wohh
You gotta treat her like a flower man, women
Need time to recover
Ooh

I flex at my reflection heading into the town
A great hunter
Yeahh

I didn’t want to wake you up
You looked so peaceful
I left some water in the cup by the stand
I’ll call you later
Oh, I just, I don’t know when
Just to remind you I’m your man forever

Splash a little water on it
And see what you’re working with
Splash a little water on it
See if it comes alive

Last night almost all went up in smoke
You cannot choke without them knowing
Keep on going
