"If You Love A Woman" as written by Carl Barat, Gary Powell, David Jonathan Hammond and Anthony Rossomondo....
I've been chasing a dream
Round a dirty little room
I've been lacing up my coffee
and screaming at the moon
Its no good for my health
I cant rate-rape myself
And if I can shake off this feeling
Then I'll be there with you soon
I need a lover a lover who's kind
If you love a woman you mustn't beat her
And if shes got a lover I'd like to meet her
The instinct I have is to kill the thing I love
And it seems to come so natural
I can never never get enough
And I know that she is wise
And she's the apple of my eye
She's my dirty pretty lover
And I want her at my side
I need a lover a lover who's kind
If you love a woman you mustn't beat her
And if you love another I'd like to meet her
What a silly way to go
Mess up the only thing you know
And its rough it's rum
It makes me feel so numb
Oh no oh no oh no no no
La la la la
I've been chasing round my room for this dirty little dream
I've been eyeing up your cigarettes and screaming at the queen
It's not good for my health
I cant rate-rape myself
And if I don't shake off this feeling
Then I'll be there with you soon
I need a lover a lover whos kind
If you love a woman you mustn't beat her
And if you love another I'd like to meet her
If you love a woman no you mustn't beat her
And if you love another oh I'd like to meet her
If she has a brother oooh la la laaa
A lover whos kind

    General Commentat first i thought it was about his inability to love a woman the right way,

    The instinct I have is to kill the thing I love
    And it seems to come so natural
    I can never never get enough

    but now i think its about his fantasy of a 3-some .. then with the last 2 lines.. a 4-some. this is one kinky/horny/anxious little boy its almost childish.

    I need a lover a lover who’s kind

    ^^so kind as to do this for him. its like hes almost like a little 5 year old saying PLLEEAASSEE CAN I PLAY OUTSIDE WITH JIMMY, MOMMY?? I'LL LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH MORE!!

    I’ve been chasing round my room for this dirty little dream

    ^^ all he is thinking about is getting it on with these 2 girls (and later he adds in the brother) circling his room with these ideas.. almost something a high school boy would do... spend all day thinking about kinky fantasies. but he's so little-kid cute about it with his straightforward-ness and the fact that we can see right through all the extra "i love you"'s in order to get his wish that its obviously going to be granted. how can you say no to that puppy face??

    that is the vibe im getting.

    General CommentSomething tells me this guy does NOT have keep 3somes & 4somes & anything else he'd like to do sexually, as fantasies........I'm sure these opportunities present themselve quite often to Carl. I'm not sure if this is so much a 3some song, but maybe just a slightly debased love song.......la la la la la love it.
