In concertIn concert, Steven Tyler has been known to substitute some lines with racier lyrics. On a live version of the song from the A Little South of Sanity album, Tyler sings "I fuck with my boots on cause you fuck with my head" instead of the studio version lyrics "I sleep with my boots on, but you're still in my head."
The band played the song heavily on their lengthy Nine Lives Tour from 1997–1999, but has almost never played it since.
