This song appears on both Bumper to Bumper and Nasty Little Thoughts, but according to the album books the lyrics are slightly different. Also, you may have noticed that for some reason the title of the song was changed from "N" to "+". I don't know who made this decision or why they decided to make it.

Washin' N Wonderin'
(AKA the Bumper to Bumper Version)
-----------------------------------

This just in, where to begin
Grin and bear it, it's bear and grim
Adoration, titilation
I'm a victim now
Because she's figured me out

She lights my candle
She has a handle on me
It's goin well but I'm scared as hell
That she'll figure me out

She thinks it sacred
To be naked
But I don't care
She's had me there
You see she's figured me out

And I want to shout
At the top of my lungs now
But oh my god
If she hears me she'll come runnin in
These are my hands
These are my faults
These are my nasty little thoughts
I wrote em down for you to contemplate
At a later date

Well the word is out, what's it all about
Doubtless shady, no shadow of doubt
In moderation this sensation would be fabulous
But she's figured me out
She's in my shower, for an hour
She's just washin' n wonderin
And trying to figure me out

Well, you're out there, just stay out there
I won't hear but be careful man
Hey careful man
And I'm sleeping now
You'll be creeping round
Just when I was on to something else
That's when she figures me out

This just in...where to begin
Grin and bear it, it's bear and grim
Adoration, titilation, I'm the victim now
Because she's figured me out
She lights my candle, she has a handle on me
It's going well but I'm scared as hell
That she'll figure me out
She thinks it's sacred to be naked
But I don't care, 'cause she's had me there
You see she's figured me out

And I wanna shout at the top of my lungs now
But oh my god, if she hears me she'll come running in...
These are my hands, these are my faults
These are my plans
These are my nasty little thoughs
I wrote 'em down for you to contemplate
At a later date

Well the word is out, what's it all about
Doubtless shady, no shadow of doubt
In moderation, this sensationwould be fabulous
But she's figured me out
She's in my shower for an hour
She's just washin' and wonderin'
And trying to figure me out...

It's a little bit of something that I feel...
Oh man, I just can't deal...
And other than this distance that has covered me
Can't you see that you have smothered me

Well, you're out there, just stay out there
Just when I was on to something else
That's when she figures me out
