Let me tell you 'bout a girl I know
I drag her around wherever I go
This little woman drives me insane
She's tied to my ankle with a ball and chain

For sixteen years, she's been hangin' around
Tryin' to bury me in a hole in the ground
Well, I think it's time that I even the score
There's only room for one in this cage of yours

Don't save me when I startin' to drown
Don't use me when you don't want me around
Just be my slave girl, 'cause that's all I need
So take a little step back to the stone age with me
Go!

Well I hear a strange noise as I lie in my bed
I feel a lotta water drippin' on my head
I look around tried to see through my hair
You left me alone, but do you think I care?

'cause you moved me when I was takin' my time
You abused me when I'm outta line
You tried to warn me of the danger sign
So watch out!
Go!

Well, you got me in the bondage of another age
You drive me to distraction in a primitive way
I can't control my instincts when I hear her say
Just come around and see me if you lose your way

So join my chain gang, play along with me
I'll be your caveman, it's basic as can be
I'm not insane, man, I'm just outta my tree

    General Commentthis song is AMAZING! they really take songs and when they cover them make them your own...it has an amazing bass part(even though robby didn't write it..)but is still a kick ass song to just throw on when you're with the BF....he's always so shocked...

    General CommentI love Robbie's voice. He sings with so much more passion, energy, and emotion than Johnny does.

    General Commentthis song is not degrading to women as some of you seem to think it is....to me it is simply about a relationship that is purely sexual where both parties don't really enjoy each other's company.

    " I look around try to see through my hair
    you left me alone but do you think I care "

    -this quote shows how the relationship is only for sex bc it is inferring that she just had sex with him and left him.

    "Just come along and see me if you lose your way"
    -the girl is obviously a skank and he doesn't care about her but just comes back to her to fulfill his needs.
    this song kicks ass

    General CommentI disagree EvoIGRE i think it's a good song... but the Goos did not write it... it was originally by The Lime Spiders... "Slave Girl" along with "Disconnected (originally by The Enemies)" were re-preformed by the Goos when drummer George Tutuska left the band. The song George wrote was taken out of the line up for A Boy Named Goo out of respect... so "Slave Girl" and "Disconnected" were preformed to replace the song.

    General CommentI like it.

    Do I think it has loads of emotion behind it? no.

    Is it degrading? sure.

    But it fun to listen too.

    General CommentThis song is full of sarcasm. He's clearly in a state of self-hate as he writes this and he's warning women away from him. There's a slight tease to it, though, as if the woman he's thinking of likes his caveman side, sometimes...
