"Pull A U" as written by Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart....
Pull a u in a sexy car
Got your black magic
And your two dollar
Pull a u in ya dust dusty car
Got your black magic
And your two dollar love

Pull a u with your sexy (?)
Got your black magic
And your two dollar love

Pull a u honey, and get me too
I'm your black magic
And your two dollar, go right

I'm not trying to wake you up
I'm not trying to wake you up

Don't clean it up
Don't lean it back
Get on the hood
Ain't nothing to lose
Sit at your two dollar love

They pull the string on everything
Your black magic
And your two dollar love, go right

I'm not trying to wake you up
I'm not trying to wake you up
I'm not trying to wake you up
I'm not trying to wake you up

Black magic and your two dollar love
Black magic and your two dollar love
Black magic and your two dollar love
Black magic and your two dollar love
Go right

    Song MeaningThe title is part of the repeated line "Pull a u in a sexy car" in the song, which is why the title probably means "pulling a U-turn," a phrase used while driving a car, meaning to change direction and go the opposite way.
    Another repeated phrase in the song is "and your two dollar love." Two dollars is very little money, which indicates it's cheap love, as in that it doesn't mean much to one of the two, or both, parties involved in the relationship. Add that to the fact of the earlier phrase talking about a "sexy" car, it hints at the relationship at hand being only about sex and nothing more.
    This makes the remaining line, "got your black magic," in the same repeated verse, seem like it might be a metaphor for sexual drive.
    Further sexual references are made with the later lines "get on the hood" or "don't clean it up," the latter meaning that something is dirty, and the narrator wants to keep it dirty.
    Finally, the line "I'm not trying to wake you up," is repeated prominently throughout the song. It's something someone who is trying leave his/her sexual partner behind and sleeping, so as not to have to confront him/her (maybe for both of their sakes), after sexual intercourse, might say/think. This decision of his/hers might also be described as "pulling a U-turn," since s/he decides to go the opposite direction of his/her partner after having his/her black magic satisfied.

    A very powerful song, conveying a common, often tragic, modern situation in very few lines.

    General CommentI think its about this guy who's trying to impress her.. and she gets so fed up with it that she tries to leave without him knowing, ie "I'm not trying to wake you up." etc. I dont think that made sense haha.

    General CommentI hope it's about pulling over and using a $2 magazine to get off. That would be rad.

    General CommentI get the vibe of date rape or something. I could be wrong but the whole "I'm not trying to wake you up" thing.
