"Chelsea Dagger" as written by and John Lawler....
Well you must be a girl with shoes like that
She said you know me well
I seen you and little steven and Joanna
Round the back of my hotel oh yeah

Someone said you was asking after me
But I know you best as a blagger
I said tell me your name is it sweet?
She said my boy it's dagger oh yeah

I was good she was hot
Stealin' everything she got
I was bold she was over the worst of it
Gave me gear thank you dear bring yer sister over here
Let her dance with me just for the hell of it

Well you must be a boy with bones like that
She said you got me wrong
I would've sold them to you
If I could've just have kept the last of my clothes on, oh yeah
Call me up take me down with you
When you go I could be your regular belle
And I'll dance for little steven and Joanna
Round the back of my hotel oh yeah

I was good she was hot
Stealin everything she got
I was bold she was over the worst of it
Gave me gear thank you dear bring yer sister over here
Let her dance with me just for the hell of it

Chelsea Chelsea I believe that when your dancing
Slowly sucking your sleeve
That all the boys get lonely after you leave
And it's one for the Dagger and another for the one you believe

Chelsea I believe that when your dancing
Slowly sucking your sleeve
That the boys get lonely after you leave
And it's one for the Dagger and another for the one you believe

    General CommentI can believe that.
    There is the lyric in the song 'Ole black 'n' blue eyes' - 'And Chelsea says she's got nowhere to go, and if she does she's gettin' there slow'- which might imply that the band actually knew her rather than just met her.

    General CommentIt definitely seems like a song about a prostitute. Burlesque dancers in videos are "code" for more naughty stuff.

    Oh, and it's not "Blagger" - I'm fairly certain it's "Blackguard", which is pronounced "Blagger" in England.

    Song Meaning"It's one for the Dagger," - Indirectly, chelsea dagger is a fault for starting the odd relationship

    "another for the one you believe" - What directly led to the ending of the relationship isn't 100% anyone's fault, it's "whoever you believe"

    Song MeaningThe song is written about the front man's (Jon Fratelli) wife who is a burlesque dancer. Her stage name is Chelsea and so this is used in the song name, the Dagger part is an attempt at word play; Chelsea DAGGER - Britney SPEARS. It might not be a good attempt but this is how the band have explained the song name and meaning.

    The word some seem confused about is "Blagger". A blagger is an endearing term for someone who can talk themselves into/out of any situation. They are cheeky chappy swindelers opposed to out right thieves.
