Hands gorgeous
rollin' a cigarette
thumbs and forefingers
rollin' tobacco and the paper
she licks the paper slow twice
putting it all together

hands gorgeous
holding a drink
smoking a cigarette
shes walking up to me
she licks the paper slow twice
putting it all together

hands gorgeous
holdin a drink
smoking a cigarette
she's walkin up to me

invite her to smoke
look at those lips

roll one for me
lets drink all night

    General CommentI really really like this song, I think it's just about courting, like this chick has his eye or something. And it's "vodka drink." I really know idea WHAT THE FUCK that has to do with lemurs, which are a type of monkey. Google around, I see no relationship. :(

    General CommentI'm pretty sure they just have random humorous titles.

    General CommentLemurs are exotic rain forest animals. They are beautiful, just like the woman. He is calling her a lemur. It's slang.

    General CommentThe 5th line should be, "she licks the paper slow twice." It's as if time slows down in this moment as he watches her roll a cigarette.

    General Commentmtb is good as is this song. that said, anyone notice how retarded the ads that appear on songmeanings are in how they try to reflect the lyrics of the song like they're connected at all? like this ones all about smoke detectors from the word "smoke"

    General CommentThe great thing about Minus the Bear is that their song titles don't have to have ANYTHING to do with the subject of the song. Just go with it. And there are two mistakes in these lyrics which is really bothersome. "it's vodka drink" not "drink" and it's "licks the paper slow twice." cuz she's rolling a cigarette, not reading a newspaper. This song is great because it takes a common action and makes it beautiful and sensuous. I love this song.
