San Marino at Eurovision 2023: Piqued Jacks with “Like An Animal”

Piqued Jacks — that’s Andrea “E-King” Lazzeretti on vocals, Francesco “littleladle” Bini on bass, Tommaso “HolyHargot” Oliveri on drums and Marco “Majic-o” Sgaramella on guitars — are an indie alt-rock band from Buggiano, Italy. The quartet have four studio albums under their belt, and have been active on the music scene since 2006. 

Piqued Jacks entered San Marino’s Eurovision selection Una voce per San Marino with their song “Like An Animal”. They won the competition and earned the right to fly the Sammarinese flag in Liverpool this May. 

What do the “Like An Animal” lyrics mean?

Piqued Jacks’ Eurovision song is an indie rock track with alternative British influence. The boys told wiwibloggs: “We grew up listening to English bands and American bands”.

“Like An Animal” is loaded with sensuality and sexuality. The lyrics describe a blaring and undeniable attraction, with lines such as “with your sexy look, you paralyse” and “she knows the way to turn me on”.  

Piqued Jacks — “Like An Animal” lyrics (San Marino Eurovision 2023)

Songwriters: Andrea Lazzeretti, Francesco Bini, Marco Sgaramella, Tommaso Oliveri

C’mon baby come and find me
I can smell you like an animal
Bring the party, Aphrodite
And I’ll chase you on the dance floor

You have, you have snake eyes
And I get, I get butterflies
You have, you have snake eyes
With your hips, with your sexy look, you paralyse
And I get, I get butterflies
In my ears, in my stomach, all the time

C’mon baby come and find me
I can smell you like an animal
Bring the party, Aphrodite
And I’ll chase you on the dance floor

C’mon baby come and find me
I can smell you like an animal
Bring the party, Aphrodite
And I’ll chase you on the dance floor

You have, you have a biting tongue
And it gets, it gets me so unstrung
You have, you have a biting tongue
To tie me up and deviate my inner thoughts
And it gets highly dangerous
And like a drug in my veins, you are poison

C’mon baby come and find me
I can smell you like an animal
Bring the party, Aphrodite
And I’ll chase you on the dance floor

C’mon baby come and find me
I can smell you like an animal
Bring the party, Aphrodite
And I’ll chase you on the dance floor

Oh c’mon baby
C’mon baby

The way, she knows the way
The way to turn me on
The way, she knows the way
The way to turn me on

I must find I find it very strange some people claim this song is about rape… Don’t want to offend Anyone. But I think it says more about them than the lyrics

How did Francesco earn the nickname of “Little Ladle”? On second thoughts, I don’t want to know.

Why do I feel like the people judging the lyrics of this song were also big fans of “Booty” from Ahlena in the Polish National Final? Lol

The lyrics work for me, but only if he actually knows this person he’s singing to and it’s reciprocal. If it’s just a total stranger that he’s chasing around the dancefloor, then yeah, I can see why some might think it creepy. There’s nothing to suggest that in the lyrics, so… yeah, I’ll give him my trust.
