"Down Boys" as written by John/cagle Oswald and Eric Turner....
Certain things you do
Really make me mad I must confess
The way the streetlight silhouettes your thighs inside your dress
Wild child in the streets
I think I see you but I really don't know
Who knows
One million miles an hour headed out to where the down boys go

Woah
Can we rewind to where we've been
Ooh I wish you'd take a look and see the shape I'm in

[Chorus]
Where the down boys go (go)
Where the down boys go
Woah
Where the down boys go
Yeah
I wanna go where the down boys go baby

You comb your hair
Put on your shades
You look real cool
You're giving me the run-around
Make me feel like a fool
You got a lot of nerve to call me cheap
Even though it's true
I don't care where we go tonight
Just take me along with you

Woah
Can we rewind to where we've been
Ooh I wish you'd take a look and see the shape I'm in

[Chorus]

Certain things you do
Really make me mad I must confess
The way the streetlight sillhouettes your thighs inside your dress

Woah
Can we rewind to where we've been
Ooh I wish you'd take a look and see the shape I'm in

[Chorus]

Where the down boys go
Where the down boys go
Where the down boys go
Where they go

    General CommentThis song is about men performing oral sex on women. The origin is "going down", a phrase meaning performing oral sex. A "down boy" is someone who enjoys performing oral sex. And "where the down boys go" refers to a certain part of the female body.
