"Rated X" as written by and Nick Gilder/james Mcculloch....
Well if you've been a married woman
And things didn't seem to work out
Divorce is the key to being loose and free
But you're gonna be talked about
Everybody knows that you loved once
They think you'll love again
You can't have a male friend
When you're a has been
Or a woman, you're rated x
[yeah]
And if you're rated x
You're some kinda gold
That even men turn [?] to make
But I think it's wrong
To judge every picture
If a cheap camera makes a mistake
So if your best friend's husband
Says to you
That you started lookin' good
You should've known he would
And he would if he could
And he will if you're rated x
Well nobody knows where you're going
But they sure know where you been
All they're thinking of
Is your experience in love
Well their minds fill up with sin
The women all look at you like you're bad
The men all hope you are
But if you go too far
You're gonna wear the scar
Of a women, rated x
[yeah]
And if you're rated x
You're some kinda gold
That even men turn [?] to make
But I think it's wrong
To judge every picture
If a cheap camera makes a mistake
So if your best friend's husband
Says to you
That you started lookin' good
You should've known he would
And he would if he could
And he will if you're rated x
Yeah us women don't have a chance
Cause if you've been married
You can't have any fun at all
You're rated x
No matter what they do
They're gonna talk about ya
Don't know what to think about it
Just let 'em talk
Just let 'em talk meg

    General Commentgoogle "the white stripes". Then go to the site called "the white stripes" (it's a fan site, not the official one). go to downloads and you can quickly download a great, live version of this song. It's easier than trying to find the single! Go to it now!

    General CommentThe lyrics are really great actually, and very sad. Like if a woman looks like she's been around, the ladies hate her and the men want her but have no respect for her. It's about how harsh women are judges, so if you make a mistake you can be bound to it and suffer consequences forever really.

    But I think it's wrong
    To judge every picture
    If a cheap camera makes a mistake

    That's incredible.
