"muscle of love" as written by Bob Marlette and Alice Cooper....
Aw, who's the queen of the locker room?
Who's the cream of the crop?
Poor Joey took her to the matinee
Said, "God, she wouldn't stop!"

Holy muscle of love
My heart's a muscle

Well, I must have come to that crazy age
Where ev'rything is hot
'Cause I don't know if the things I'm thinking
Are normal thoughts or not

Holy muscle of love
Well, I got a muscle of love
Yeah
Ooh

I read Dad's books like I did before
Now things are crystal clear
Lock the door in the bathroom now
I just can't get caught in here

Holy muscle of love
Well, I got a muscle of love
Holy muscle of love
I got a muscle of love
Holy muscle of love
My heart's a muscle of love
Holy muscle of love
Well, I got a muscle of love
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Must be a gift from above
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
(Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
(Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)

    General CommentI think Cooper likes to mess with people. way back when this song came out, and say... you might have been a teen, YOU knew he meant something deeper, like his heart or whatever. But you ALSO knew your parents would see the name of the song and get mad and tell you to stop listening to this "sick man", which would of course make you want to listen to it more. And that kind of thing makes me laugh.

    General CommentFunny Song. Alice is amazing man. To most it prolly meant penis.

    But it could also be his heart...because the heart is the muscle also...

    General CommentI think it's about reaching puberty and looking at girls a different way. The "muscle" could refer to both the heart and the penis. But there are references to masturbation (Lock the door in the bathroom now
    I just can't get caught in here)

    General CommentThe song is about goddamn dicks

    Not about the frickin heart

    you wish there was more to it...but its alice cooper lol

    "I read Dad's books like I did before
    Now things are crystal clear
    Lock the door in the bathroom now
    I just can't get caught in here"

    The boy just hit puberty and hes lookin at his dads playboys and he locks him self in the bathroom and spanks the monkey, or muscle of love.

    and plus...this is a great song..and fun to play on guitar...especially for people learning...ultimate-guitar.com and search muscle of love for the tab.

    My InterpretationThe song is about self discovery of a penis by a growing by. It is about masturbation plain and simple. Yeah I got a muscle of love and I like to yank on it. Seriously anyone seeing anything else here is deluding them self. Sometimes Alice is Deep sometimes he is very matter of fact but rarely do you need to consult a road map to figure it all out.

    My InterpretationFirst, I have a question: is the boy who sings the song Joey? Or the protagonist learns about sexuality seeing Joey making love? I support the latter. The lyric "My heart's a muscle" is cuz the protagonist saw Joey having sex with a naughty girl and get a erection at the same time his heart beat faster.

    I think that the protagonist always knew about romantic love, that thing that you love with your heart and etc, but he always questioned himself how can someone love with his heart. Then he saw Joey and the naughty girl and learned that the penis, not the heart, is the real muscle love. Also, romantic love is thought as sacred-like, so after he learns that boys love with their penis he refer to his dick as "holy". The protagonist masturbates because he is young, in that age he "makes love" by himself, but he will get older and something like what happen to Joey will happen to him eventually.

    I have also another interpretation that when he says "Holy muscle of love / My heart's a muscle" is more like "The penis is the holy muscle of love, the heart isn't the muscle of love, it's just a muscle".

    Anyway, jerk off, this song is too damn cool!
