"Going Down" as written by Ian George Brown and John Squire....
Dawn sings in the garden
Phone sings in the hall
This boy's dead from two day's life
Resurrected by the call
Penny here we've got to come
So come on round to me
There's so much penny lying here
To touch, taste and tease
Ring a ding ding ding I'm going down
I'm coming round
Penny's place her crummy room
Her dansette crackles to Jimi's tune
I don't care I taste Ambre Solaire
Her neck her thighs her lips her hair
Ring a ding ding ding I'm going down
I'm coming around

All thoughts of sleep desert me
There is no time
Thirty minutes brings me round to her number nine

Yeah she looks like a painting
Jackson Pollock's Number Five
Come into the forest and taste the trees
The sun starts shining and I'm hard to please
Ring a ding ding ding I'm going down
I'm coming around

All thoughts of sleep desert me
There is no time
Thirty minutes brings me round to her number nine

To look down on the clouds
You don't need to fly
I've never flown in a plane
I'll live until I die

    General CommentAwesome track.

    As mentioned about oral sex and I can tell you its not a good idea to sing "ring a ding ding ding i'm going down" when you are literally about to go down on your bird, kind of spoils the moment!

    General CommentThis boy's dead from two day's life
    Resurrected by the call
    Penny here, we've got to come
    So come on round to me
    There's so much penny lying here
    To touch, taste and tease

    penny here etc, could that be the girl penny on the phone saying 'penny here, weve got to come!' and so on?

    General CommentThis is a song blatantly about oral sex! It's mainly about giving it, but the last verse is about receiving. And the girl in the song gives dynamite head, it would seem.

    General Comment79%? That's very specific! I agree with all the previous posts, but does anyone know what the first verse is about?

    "This boy's dead from two day's life
    Resurrected by the call
    Penny here, we've got to come
    So come on round to me
    There's so much penny lying here
    To touch, taste and tease"

    General Comment"79%? That's very specific!" Haha, aye! But I'll change the number to 49%, I might have been a bit optimistic with 79%!

    I feel that the first verse is about the lad doing all the oral sex is absolutley beat after two days of hard partying. But then gets up and running again Penny calls him over to get cracking at her.
