"Slowdive" as written by and Siouxsie The Banshees....
Git yer head down to the ground
Shake it all around, a dirty sound.
Git yer knees into yer face
And see if you can race real slow

It's a slow dive
When ya dive slow.
Aw it's a low jive
Do the Slowdive.

Git yer head down to the ground
Shake it all around a dirty sound.
Git yer knees into yer face
And see if you can race real slow

Now ya jump back like a hound
Emit a howling sound
Dig those limbs into the floor!
And holler out for more!

And ya revel in the dips
When yer backbone slips
Takin' honeysuckle sips
From yer rollin' hips

It shifts and shifts
It's a Slow Dive!

Slow dive!
When ya dive slow!
It's a Low Jive!
Do the Slow dive!

It's a Slow Dive!
Slow dive!
When ya come alive
It's a low jive
Do the Slow Dive!

Slow dive!
Slow dive!
Do the Slow Dive

Slow dive!
Slow dive!
Do the Slow Dive

Slow dive!
Slow dive!
When you dive slow
When ya come alive!
It's a low jive
Do the Slow Dive
Do the slow dive

Slow dive!
Uh
Git yer head down to the ground
And shake it all around a dirty sound.
Git yer knees into yer face
And see if you can race real slow.
It's a Slow Dive
When ya dive slow
Awhh it's a low jive
Do the Slow dive

    General CommentIt's about sex, xianificent. Honestly, how more blatant does it have to be?

    General CommentThis song makes me want to dance. Of course it's about sex, though (particularly going down?). Most of this album is!

    General CommentOnly two comments on this awesome song? Come on people, where's your taste in music? This is just pure fun, through and through. And I agree with Meiriona. Tough to see this as something other than sexual, particularly given the pause at 3:23 (the orgasm) and Siouxsie Sioux's accompanying grunt at 3:26.

    Song MeaningSIOUXSIE: " 'Slowdive' was an improvised lyric...It's like, umm, if you're making music, what it amounts to is, because you're expressing something you can't say in words. So for me to explain what that is, is taking away something that you lose when you're just using speech. With music it should speak for itself. Source: Elektron Interview 20/12/82
