"Does She Talk?" as written by and Matthew Sweet....
She's just your size
She's sexy she's beautiful
Does she talk?
She's just your size
She's sexy she's beautiful
Does she talk?
'Cause man you can't teach
A slithering snake how to talk

Did she lick your palm
To tell you your fortune tonight?
Did she lick your palm
To tell you your fortune tonight?
You know sometimes it just isn't worth
Putting up a fight, is it?

Gonna need you a key
To open the door to her heart
Gonna need you a key
To open the door to her heart
Or are you afraid her body is
Missing that part?

Well I can you up the
You can me up the
Alright
Well I can you up the
You can me up the
Alright
Because they took channel 23
Off the air last night
Down home

You're gonna like it
You're gonna like it

    My InterpretationI saw them live a couple of times. Best show was in Boulder, Co in 1991 or 1992. The concert was FANTASTIC. I danced front row with my gal pals the whole show. Every time they paused to talk things over between songs- I'd yel, "Does She Talk". They did not play it UNTIL as their very final encore song- they played it. I got the feeling Matthew Sweet did not want to play it but it has such a strong driving sound & it is dirty - so I LOVE it. The crowd went crazy over it- I don't believe most of them knew the words- or even cared.
    My interpretation is that he is singing about using a blow up doll & "toys" because the porn channel isn't working. I think he keeps her hidden in a lock box which is why he needs a key to her heart. He gets into it cuz it is sex, man but is also turned off that having a sex doll is a pervy thing?! Anyway- that is my take on it.
    I write this in 2018 & still listen to my CD "Girlfriend" often. My tween kiddos like his music too but none of their pals know him, of course. I think it is so much fun to turn my kids on to my old favorites like "Driv'n n' Cryin' " "Crowded House" "Simply Red" "Stevie Ray Vaughn" Lynyrd Skynyrd" "ELO" and "Ben Folds Five" etc.
