HANKY PANKY

Lyrics

Come over here!

Some girls they like candy, and others, they like to grind
I'll settle for the back of your hand somewhere on my behind
Treat me like I'm a bad girl, even when I'm being good to you
I don't want you to thank me, you can just spank me, mmm

Some guys like to sweet talk, and others, they like to tease
Tie my hands behind my back and, ooo, I'm in ecstasy
Don't slobber me with kisses, I can get that from my sisters
Before I get too cranky, you better...

Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy

Ooooh

Please don't call a doctor, 'cause there's nothing wrong with me
I just like things a little rough and you better not disagree
'Cause I don't like a big softie (no) I like someone mean and bossy
Let me speak to you frankly, you better...

Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy

Ooooh, yeah

What about? Yeah. That's an interesting...
Ooooh
My bottom hurts just thinking about it

(She wants you to) Treat me like I'm a bad girl
(She needs you to) Even when I'm being good to you
I don't want you to thank me (Don't thank her), you better...

Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy

(Hanky panky) Oooh, yeah
(Good spanky) Get the picture?
(Don't wanna cry, I just wanna)

That's the way I came into this world (hanky panky)
The doctor said, "Lady, she's a beautiful girl&quot (good spanky)
He gave me a spanky and I started to smile (don't wanna cry, I just wanna)
So give it up, honey, 'cause I want it
Yeah
(Hanky panky, good spanky, don't wanna cry, I just wanna)

Single

Hanky Panky, the singleSince Vogue was actually a separate single, Hanky Panky was the first and only single from I'm Breathless. Squeezed in between smash hits Vogue and Justify My Love and without a proper video it's often forgotten. It got to #10 in the US, enough for Gold and it reached #2 in Canada and the UK (where it was kept from #1 by Partners in KRYME's 'Turtle Power'). It marked one of Madonna's first affiliations with the S&M-theme, though with a very ironic twist.

Tour

Hanky Panky, the videoA whole segment of the Blond Ambition Tour was dedicated to Madonna's then-current movie Dick Tracy. Madonna, dressed in a green pinup dress, asks her Dick for a good spanky. Warren Beatty refused to play the Dick Tracy character, so it was done by dancer Slam. Since there was no proper video for this single, music channels broadcast the live performance instead.

Hanky Panky @ Re-Invention Tour Surprisingly, the song made a comeback 14 years later on the Re-Invention Tour. No children or Kabbalah can keep our girl from yearning for a nice smack on her bottom. Dressed in a red & white striped circus outfit and fish stockings, she and the girls did some sexy and playful dancing, while crying out "I just want a hanky panky guy, is that asking for too much?!".
