"G.P.T." as written by and Martha Wainwright....
Cop a ride or catch a feel
I won't be late, I won't decline
Your invite tonight this starry cold night

It's six o'clock get up the block
Don't be scared don't be shocked
I'll be there tonight on yours & mine's night
I'm yours and mine tonight

And oh bring back my memory
And say goodnight to Irene

The sun is down
You'll act the clown, I'll dance around
We'll hit the town
Your shirt is stained my dress is frayed
But later they'll go

I've laid my claim, I thought for sure
That I'd be yours oh but your friend is much more
But he's got a date and she's got a name
I don't care

And oh bring back my memory
And say goodnight to Irene

There was six drunk men
Six drunk men
See how they fail
See how they fail

Catch a ride or cop a feel
I won't be late I won't decline
Your invite tonight this starry cold night

    General CommentI don't know what this song means, but I think the line "and say goodnight to Irene" refers to the Leadbelly's song, "Goodnight Irene".

    General CommentIt would appear to. I don't see the connection, though. Goodnight Irene is a "she's gone, i'm going to kill myself song".
    This is a sex song. Libido, etc.

    General CommentI believe it stands for "Greenpoint Tavern" which is a pub in Brooklyn, New York. I guess it would be the setting for all of the stuff going on in the lyrics.

    And yeah, I agree with azkm, the song is about libido, promiscuity, the carefree and decadent hedonistic party life. See: Great Gatsby.
