Under my thumb is a squirming dog who's just had her day
Under my thumb is a girl who has just changed her ways

It's down to me, the way she does just what she's told
Down to me, the change has come, she's under my thumb

[interlude; verse pattern]

It's down to me, the way she talks when she's spoken to
Down to me, the change has come, she's under my thumb

Under my thumb is a siamese cat of a bird
Under my thumb, she's the sweetest pet in the world

It's down to me, the way she talks when she's spoken to
Down to me, the change has come, she's under my thumb

Yeah, she's under my thumb, babe, she's under my thumb
