"Golden Retriever" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Hey said the devil
When I met her at the roundabout
She's got powers
Magnetic devours you of everything you've got

She's a golden retriever
Retrieves your oldest coin
Leads you blindly down every dark alley
Then she'll bleed you dry

Stop! Said the puppy
When I met him at the zebra cross
She said "You need protection
From every direction
But she'll get you anyhow"

She's a golden retriever
Retrieves your oldest coin
Leads you blindly down every dark alley
Then she'll bleed you dry

She's a golden retriever
She's a golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever

Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever

    General CommentI sleeps around bit is probably true, but I believes it more about a woman who is a gold digger.

    General Commenti am british but not silly...except when listening to SFA.

    great line is the british translation of meeting the devil not at the crossroads but at the ... zebra crossing (pedestrian road crossing).

    great guitar break live.

    General CommentThis is actually about 2 puppies that Gruff Rhys and his girlfriend had at the time... Nice try though ;)

    General CommentYeah I'm sure the song really is that straightforwardly literal as that, and with no subtext whatsoever.

    General CommentI think it's about prostitution.
    "When I met her at the roundabout" - stopping on the road to pick her up
    "Retrieves your oldest coin" - it's said prostitution is the oldest trade
    "Leads you blindly down every dark alley" - well, self explanatory
    "You need protection from every direction" - again, self explanatory
