"Lil' Red Riding Hood" as written by Sid Wayne and Sherman Edwards....
Who's that I see walkin' in these woods?
Why it's Little Red Ridin' Hood

Hey there Little Red Riding Hood
You sure are lookin' good
You're everything a big bad wolf would want

Listen to me

Little Red Ridin' Hood
I don't think even big girls should
Go walkin' in these spooky old woods alone

What big eyes you have
The kind of eyes that drive wolves mad
So, just to see that you don't get chased
I think I ought to walk with you for a way

What full lips you have
They're sure to lure someone bad
So, untill you get to grandma's place
I think you ought to walk, with me and be safe

I'm gonna keep my sheep suit on
Till I'm sure that you've been shown
That I can be trusted walkin' with you alone

Little Red Ridin' Hood
I'd like to hold you if I could
But you might think I'm a big bad wolf, so I won't

What a big heart I have
The better to love you with
Little Red Ridin' Hood
Even bad wolves can be good

I'll try to be satisfied
Just to walk close by your side
Maybe you'll see things my way
Before we get to grandma's place

Little Red Ridin' Hood
You sure are lookin' good
You're everything a big bad wolf could want

    General CommentPfft. It's about a dude (the wolf) that's turned on by a girl (lil red riding hood) and he's checking her out and stuff and he's in love with her and he wants her to trust him but he's gotta show her first. Duh.

    Still, it went good with Cursed, great movie, effects suck but cool all the same.

    General CommentThis is a good cover of the original. I don't really like taking things down to this level but its obvious to me.

    Think its pretty much talking about (wolves) people preying on women. Rape etc

    Like "I don't think even big girls should
    Go walkin' in these spooky old woods alone"

    Could signify parking lot street or allery where these type of things happen.

    Also constantly mentioning physical features driving Wolves mad.

    Though honestly the whole song doesn't seem to have that feel especially in the end.

    All in all it seems more of someone is obsessed with Lil' Red Riding Hood but can't have here.

    General CommentI don't know why you say things like 'i don't really like taking it down to this level' like we're all a bunch of idiots when you are obviously wrong.
    Really think bowling for soup writes songs about rape?
    It's just about a bad guy who has fallen for the good girl. She doesn't know that he's 'bad' yet and he's afraid if she finds out what he is really like she wont talk to him or will be frightened of him. He feels though he's been bad in the past he can change for her...although there is certainly a mentality of old dogs can't learn new tricks through out the song
