"Paraffin" as written by and Lesley/walk Rankine....
Old man's ass
Fifty heads wide
Old man's ass
Could stretch a battle ship,
Side to side to side to side to side to side to side to side

Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Stretch my neck to look up to him
Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Fit for the kill

There's a flower thief in my back yard again,
I'll grin my teeth to make him stay,
Trap him in my flower bed and then
I'll feed him with my paraffin.
Feed him with my paraffin.
Stretch my neck to look up to him.

Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Stretch my neck to look up to him
Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Stretch my neck to look up to him.

Old man got me in the eye again
Stretch my neck to look up to him.
Stuck his bony finger in.
Stretch my neck to look up to him.
Turned me round and did it all again.
Stretch my neck to look up to him.
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin

Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin

    General CommentIt is awesome.
    Aside from the old man's ass part, i think its pretty straight forward.
    I feel it has something to do with trying to have this guy ...and feed him paraffin (wax)?
    doing so, she begins to smell like it.
    well, i think it really depends on what she means by paraffin and its significance. I doubt she means it literally. it probably is symbolic/an analogy for something else.
    It may have to do with paraffin being something that is burned.
    Paraffin is also used in cooking, and also is used as a laxative.
    if it is the latter, ide say Ruby is quite the potty mouth.

    My InterpretationIf this isn't a song about sodomy, I don't know what is.

    General CommentI think that this song is much more imaginative that just talking about sex. .. an ass is not only a bottom but also a donkey. This animal was use in the past to stretch boats aside channels. . This would better fit with this song? For the rest of the lyrics this makes me think about this horror movie with a psycho who fills the victim bodies with parafin to conserve them. In the song the psycho is also killed as he smells like parafin too at the end !
