She looked at me with dignity said
"There's something you got to see if you know we're headed for war this country's prouder than ever before
Yes there's a spirit in the air we're more American than anywhere"
Well I just smiled 'cause I could tell this little girl's going to Hell
Now I wouldn't mind if you swallowed my pride
Would make me feel alright deep inside feel alright
All the warmth in her heart can't keep my blood from running cold
Keep my blood from running cold
First I fell for her looks now I just wanna go for the throat
I tried to tell her a hundred times this little girl didn't understand at all
Pride comes before a fall
Now I wouldn't mind if you swallowed my pride
Make me feel alright deep inside feel alright Ohh
This ain't the Garden of Eden
This ain't the summer of love
Things ain't what they used to be
There ain't no angels above
Whoa
Ain't the Garden of Eden
Ain't no angels above
Things ain't what they used to be
This ain't the summer of love

    General CommentThis song appears to be about oral sex.
    He wants the woman to "swallow [his] pride"-substitute pride for penis, this is backed up by the "now I just want to go for the throat" line although the same song as performed by Soungarden has "now I just want to go for the THRONE" but this version seems to make more sense.
    It is also about having a lack of respect for the woman in the song, not that oral sex is disrespectful just in this case it is part of the disrespect.
    Maybe, or perhaps I just have sex on the brain.
