"Aphrodisiac Jacket" as written by and Ian Robert/duffy Astbury....
Ow, ow, ow

Sittin' on a mountain, looking at the sun
Plastic fantastic lobster telephone

Drive on baby, through the electric night
All the way sister, in the taxi of life

Cookin' in the kitchen, insects on the bone
Hazy, lazy, dream world drippin' on
Waitin' for a time bomb, yeah, tick tick tick away
Somethin' on the radio, yeah yeah, drip drip drip all day, yeah

Drive on baby, through the electric night
All the way sister, in the taxi of light
The sunshine glows, but nobody knows
The nighttime's gone, keep drivin' on, yeah

Aphrodisiac jacket
Napoleon machine gun
Livin' on a subway, yeah yeah
From dusk till dawn, yeah

Push baby, push, push, push, yeah

Sittin' on a mountain, we're looking at the sun
Plastic fantastic lobster telephone, yeah

Drive on baby, through the electric night
All the way sister, in the taxi of light
The sunshine glows, but nobody knows
The nighttime's gone, keep drivin' on

    General CommentAn Aphrodisiac Jacket is a smoking jacket with little glasses of booze attached all over it. It was created by Salvador Dali.

    General CommentI agree it rocks, but it has some odd lyrics, can it possibly be anything more than attempt at cool imagery. Lobster telephone??? Napoleon machine-gun possible at attempt at anachronisms to be ironic?? Aphrodisiac Jacket, I thought could be a condom but cannot see much sexiness beyond this

    General CommentMaybe it's just about imagery and liking the words.

    General CommentI guess I want the song to have some great meaning, but I guess it is like a Duran Duran or a Beck song and just has some cool sounding words but in the end is just nonsense-
    but this song does rock
