"Naked If I Want To (Jerry Miller Jr. cover)" as written by and Jerry A. Miller Jr.....
Would you let me walk down your street
Naked if I want to
Can I fly fireworks on the fourth of every single July
Can I buy an amplifier on time
My sweet time

And I got no money
I will pay this time
And I got no money
I will pay you before I die.

And would you let me walk down your street
Naked if we all wanted to
Can I fly fireworks on the fourth of every single July
Can I fly an aeroplane way up high in all the sky

And I got no mercy
I will pay this time
And I got no mercy
I will pay you before I die.

    General CommentCat Power's cover of this song is too pretty to be about taking advantage of someone.

    It's more about love/friendship/acceptance. Similar, perhaps, to William Carlos Williams' "This Is Just To Say." The things that are said point to something unspoken. The song suggests a relationship without jealousy (hence the walking naked down the street), and with allowances for fun (fireworks and amplifiers). It is not terribly serious, and that it why it's so beautiful.

    As for the "I will pay you before I die," it sounds to me like a poetic "I owe you one," but I imagine it really signifies the giving nature of the relationship. No one's keeping track or score, or calling in favors.

    General CommentThis one's interesting. I'm assuming it's about taking advantage of/using someone. Pushing someone to the limit. Seeing how much you can do before he/she will object.
