"Can't Stop Messin'" as written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tommy Shaw and Jack Martin Blades....
Sittin' at a stop sign
Lookin' for a friend of mine
Waitin' to salute the flag
Talkin' to some he/she
Slidin' over next to me
Man, she said, this life is a drag
It's a shaky situation
And I'm hangin' on my will
And I get no satisfaction
From a hundred dollar bill
But I got what I came for
And I'll do it 'til I drop
You do what you want to do
I ain't never gonna stop
You say you got somethin' that makes you feel good
And you can't stop messin' with it
All your life you've been so misunderstood
Cause you can't stop messin' with it
Sittin' by the seashore
Dreamin' 'bout a little more
Circlin' the classifieds
Nine seven six
Man I need another fix
I'll never have to kiss the bride
Yeah, the city is a war zone
This country gone to hell
And the beer cans in the alley
From the rich folks on the hill
They're screamin' hallelujah
But I don't give a damn
Cause I got my own religion
Yeah, it's right here in my hand

    General CommentThis song is so filthy. And as I am British, would anyone else care to comment? Hint. It's an halirous song about Prostitutes. I think the line 'I'll never have to kiss the bride' is something that my sister should take into account. I know he's only marrying her for sex, his religion forbids it before marrage, so they're rushing into it. But I've seen him naked, he's not that well hung. She's going to be so dissapointed on her wedding night. Ha ha ha.

    General CommentSimple message really, not as filthy as it may first appear. Seems to me like its all about the complete lack of morals that current generations seem to have. Nobody believes in anything, they have their own religions. Marriage isn't an option anymore, war is everywhere, and drugs and alcohol are readily available to anybody who wants in.

    General CommentThe point of view is from a rich boy who has all his inheritance to burn on blow jobs by she-male prostitutes ("he/she sliding over next to me", "waiting to salute the flag") and sex phone lines ("976, man I need another fix"). Typical of rich kids, he has everything handed to him so he is bored (a pun with "this life is a drag"); he has nothing better to do than fulfill his sexual fetishes. The world around him is a disaster ("the city is a war zone, this country gone to hell") and the rich conservatives are singing the same old moral tune ("they're screamin' hallelujah"). He has heard it before and does not care. Like everyone else his age, he has his own religion -- his own self-absorbed self which he fulfills through masturbation ("can't stop messin' with it", "right here in my hand"). Besides poignant lyrics disguised in typical Aerosmith style fashion, the instruments are superb. The best part, besides the main riff which actually sounds like jerking off, is the intrumental interlude with the cool rhythm in the background as the solo plays. A great tune.
