"Slip It In" as written by and Gregory Regis Ginn....
Hey mama. Come on, come on.
I don't know.
Come on, come on. This is it.
I kinda got a boyfriend.
No, no. This is happening. This is the time, now.
Uh, oh, ok!
Alright, come on, go, go

You're loose
(Slip it in)
Put your brain in a noose
(Slip it in)
The next day you regret it
(Slip it in)
But, you're still loose

You say you don't want it
You don't want it
Say you don't want it
Then you slip it on in

In, in, in

You feel like a whore
(Slip it in)
But what you did the night before
(Slip it in)
You decided to be all loose
(Slip it in)
And go all crazy

You say you don't want it
You don't want it
Say you don't want it
But then you slip it on in

In, yeah

You slip it in [Repeat x2]

You say you didn't think
(Slip it in)
You said you had too much to drink
(Slip it in)
Is it in the chemical?
(Slip it in)
Or is it just some part of you?

You say you don't want it
You don't want it
Say you don't want it
But then you slip it on in

In, in, in

You regret how you felt
(Slip it in)
You felt it
(Slip it in)
You decided to be all loose
(Slip it in)
It's what you choose

You say you don't want it
You don't want it
Say you don't want it
But then you slip it on in

You slip it in [x2]

Alright! Hey! Hey!

You say you got a boyfriend
(Slip it in)
But you're hinting at my friends
(Slip it in)
And everybody else's friend
(Slip it in)
You're not loose, you're wide open

And you say you don't want it
You don't want it
Say you don't want it
Then you slip it on in

In, in, in

You're getting around
(Slip it in)
I'm not putting it down
(Slip it in)
It's just what it is
(Slip it in)
Getting it while it's around

You say you don't want it
You don't want it
You don't want it
But then you slip it on in

In, in, in

You slip it in [Repeat x2]

Mount up!

    General Commentits a song about a girl hooking up with a guy at a show even though she has a boyfriend. ya, the aggressor tries to lay it on thick, but its not about that, its about a girl in a relationship screwin around and using a bunch of excuses (to much to drink, they regret it) to try and earn forgiveness even though they'll just do it again. sexist? no, because this is something that a lot of people go through. boy, girl, whatever. it just happened to be a girl in this song. people read way to much into stuff.

    General Commentthis song gets almost boring because of all the repitions, but they function perfectly within the song to emphasize slipping it in, time and time again. Not much depth here, but an enjoyable song nonetheless.

    General CommentYou guys are stupid. Everyone with half a brain knows that punk uses a lot of sarcasm to get a point across. They sometimes show how stupid other people are by acting like the stupid person in a song.

    General CommentThis song has a pretty sexist mentality, i think. It's talking about some girl and they're calling her a whore, but the guys she has sex with aren't? Anyways, pretty catchy, cool sounding song, the lyrics aren't great though.

    General CommentYeah, it kind of disgusts me that they wrote sexist victim-blaming shit like this-- and that Suzi Gardner from L7 even agreed to be on this album! Catchy, but gawd the lyrics suck.

    General CommentI think this song is very much either Ginn or Rollins playing a role of a manwhore and its not their own beliefs at all as their other work will show and the female part matches it.
    Otherwise great song with phenomenal punchy guitar work.

    General CommentGotta agree with FuneralPyre. I always saw the song as Rollins occupying the headspace of some misogynistic dick, then throwing the guy's ugly worldview in our faces (I feel like he does this on a bunch of later flag songs.) I seriously doubt Suzi Gardner (or Kira for that matter) would have contributed to the album if they were convinced "Slip it In" was a totally sincere expression of Black Flag's oppinions on women. Yeah, classic song, btw.

    General Commenti think song is genius. it shows how easy people are to breaking commitment for a quick fuck. and not only that, it shows the kind of dude who does these kind of things even though knowing the woman has a significant other, which is him being a dick. it doesn't go much deeper then morality and trust issues, really.
