"Tits" as written by and Ronald D Mael....
Harry, it's good of you to stay
Hear every word I say
And not just duck away

God, these drinks are something warm and watered down
Barkeep, how 'bout some ice
Hey, Harry sit back down
Say, that little thing there's fine from behind

They all look good after three or four,
So drink Harry, drink Harry,
Drink 'til you can't see no more
Of anything, no more of anything
Drink Harry, drink Harry, drink 'til you can't see no more

For months, for years,
Tits were once a source of fun and games at home
And now she says, tits are only there to feed our little Joe
So that he'll grow

Harry, it's really rough at home
I've caught her on the phone
Hey, who's that on the phone?
"Oh, that's no one dear",

The standard sort of line
Harry, you know me well,
You know that I'm not blind
Hey, you ain't been drinking
Don't you know I'm buying?

They all taste good after three or four
So drink Harry, drink Harry, drink 'til you can't drink no more
Of anything, no more of anything
Drink Harry, drink 'til you can't drink no more

How well I know
Tits were only there for fun and games at home
And now she says, tits are only there to feed our little Joe
So that he'll grow

God, the room is spinning round
Hey, drive me home old pal
God, you sure get around
Harry, I know it's you who's breaking up my home
Harry, don't say a word, just drop me off at home
Harry, forgive me Harry, let's have just one more

It's all so good after three or four
It's all so good after three or four
It's all so good after three or four

So let's drink Harry, drink 'til we can't drink no more
Of anything, no more of anything
Drink Harry, drink Harry, drink 'til we can't drink no more

How well I know
Tits were once a source of fun and games at home
And now she says, tits are only there to feed our little Joe
So that he'll grow into a man

So let's drink Harry, drink 'til we can't see no more

    General CommentIt's a fun song about a drunk guy and his friend and the drunk guys wife is cheating on him, or so he thinks. I reckon its just about being drunk and silly.

    General CommentI don't believe it's just about being drunk and silly

    Look at this line:
    "Tits were only there for fun and games at home
    And now she says, tits are only there to feed our little Joe"
    The couple used to have a healthy relationship, there were fun and games (with tits apparently) but now that little baby Joe is in the picture she doesn't care for fun and games anymore.
    The couple parted and resulted in the sad scenario of an alcoholic husband and a cheating wife.
    It's quite a sad song, in that Sparks-sort of way ;)

    General CommentWhat Triggerfit said. It's about parenting and its effect on a marriage.

    The inebriated gentleman is telling his buddy that he and his wife had a great sex life until the birth of their son. Now that they have a baby son, the wife has become all "Mommy" and no "love partner"

    General CommentNirvana In Mystic's response is so hilariously out of touch with the lyrics. That's not a diss or anything, it made me laugh hard.

    My InterpretationIt's about a man and his wife growing apart after the birth of their son, yes, but nobody has mentioned the man's accusations of his friend, Harry, whom he drinks with, yet.

    He has caught his wife on the phone, supposedly with another man. "Harry, it's really rough at home / I've caught her on the phone / Hey, who's that on the phone? / 'Oh, that's no one dear'" and then in the next verse, the man says to Harry, "Hey, you ain't been drinking / Don't you know I'm buying?" Harry isn't drinking because he's anxious about being around the man whose wife he's cheating on.

    Later, when asking Harry to drive him home after a night of drinking, the man says to Harry, "Harry, I know it's you who's breaking up my home / Harry, don't say a word, just drop me off at home / Harry, forgive me Harry, let's have just one more" Meaning, he has figured out that his wife is cheating on him with his friend, Harry, but then the man realizes that he's probably wrong and drunk and takes it back, so as to save their friendship and also because being in denial of this affair could keep him feeling less horrible about himself and his life than he could be if he just accepted it.

    TLDR: A man and his wife are no longer romantic after having a child; man becomes alcoholic and drinks with his friend, Harry; Harry is secretly having an affair with the man's wife

    General CommentRevAndroid has it right but I always wondered if there's more, especially considering the bitterness that pervades the whole Indiscreet album this comes from: Why does he want Harry to keep drinking. He knows Harry is cheating with his wife, could he be poisoning the drinks?
