"Bad Dream Mama" as written by Jessie Everett Hughes and Josh Homme....
Now don't you worry 'bout a thing
It's just a bad dream mama
So let's get ourselves together and roll
I'm just a mean machine so tight and skinny
And my hands are clean
If you want to come then you can spend my money
I've got a sixth sense you're a man-eating woman
So sophisticated
So L.A.
Don't try to be too smart
You might just find you'll miss the best part
I'm here right now
I want to be your monkey!

    General CommentI figured I'd be the first to comment =)

    Aha, so I'll be honest. This is not typically what I listen to... it was on a mix from a friend, & I was immediately inclined to the sound of it; it had a strange appeal... very upbeat, catchy drum rhythm, chord progression, heavy bass... Aha, but first impressions are deceiving.

    The lyrics are a bit.., chaotic, for lack of better words. I'm assuming it's very sexual. "...man-eating woman / So sophisticated"--quite the oxymoron.

    I have neither the will nor desire to attempt deciphering the rest. If anyone else has a clue/opinion, I'd be interested.

    General CommentI'm thinking this is Jesse being the dirty rock star from the desert picking up an LA woman. She's a man-eater meaning she's a gold digger, but he's cool with that and just wants to be her "Monkey."
