(Chorus)
Just a floozy with an Uzi,
Just a girlie with a gun,
When I could have been a model,
And I should have been a nun.

I'll lose my blues in some Jacuzzi
Life's just a lotta clean fun
For a floozy with an Uzi,
For a girlie with a gun.

Just what was it about that
Little Israeli machine?
Play all day in the sand,
Nothin' gets jammed,
Understand what I mean?

So Mister, you can keep your lenses,
And Sister, you can keep your beads.
I'm ridin' in Mercedes Benzes,
I'm taking care of all my needs.

(Chorus)

Just what was it about that
Little Israeli machine?
Play all day in the sand,
Nothin' gets jammed,
Understand what I mean?

So Mister, you can keep your lenses,
And Sister, you can keep your beads.
I'm ridin' in Mercedes Benzes,
I'm taking care of all my needs.

(Chorus)

    General CommentThe song is from the novel, Vineland by Thomas Pynchon, which takes place in the 80s. Or something like that. It has a lot of social, cultural and political opinion. I would say more but I haven't go to the part yet. Lol.

    I'm kind of stuck on the song's meaning but it seems to be kind of like the book. Full of cultural, political and social stuff.

    Floozy is often a word meant for a good-time girl and Uzis are popular in the Middle East, combo of social and political :P But then it changes to "girlie with a gun," to be more politcal correct (Something they were concerned more about in the 80s, but it's probably unrelated).

    The speaker, a girl (actually when I skimmed through the book a girl sings this, anyway), is going through a few regrets in the first two stanzas, they were pretty and could of done modeling instead of being a floozy, and they should of gone down the path of God "And I should of been a nun". She lost her "blues in some jacuzzi" meaning jacuzzi may of cheered her up? But the word "some", it means something to me, like it wasn't signifant where or who's jacuzzi that is, but what happened in there was significant, like sex. Because every song is about sex. Then she goes back to reassuring herself saying that "Life is a lot of clean fun". And the pattern is like that for the first two stanzas. A statement that may be questionable, then another statement correcting it, etc.

    Then it's all about the political/social/cultural commentry, because every chick has that on her mind.

    For example, "Little Israeli machine play all day in the sand.." is probably refering to the Lebanon War.

    "Sister you can keep your beads" is refering to nuns and the speaker is pushing religion away because she doesn't need a religious figure to guide her and show her the Right Way, so she's going for more superficial stuff like "riding in Mercedes Benzes" because that takes "care of all my[her] needs" right now, when it matters. Reminds me of a yuppie almost :x

    That's my 2 cents. :)
