Late at night I walk through town
I eye every one I meet
I want to follow them all home
But I just follow my feet
Into the book store
I see lined up
"Virgins Die Horny"
Sitting next to the Hite report
Sitting next to love story

And I ask what does sex mean to me
And what does sex mean to society

I put my finger to my tongue
And I taste vagina
I licked Betty Ford's boots (it's true)
She wore 'em all over China
People say that Chinese people don't
Ball as much as we do
'Cause their cultural revolution has shown
There are more important
Things to see to

So I ask what does sex mean to me
And what does sex mean to society
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me

I see another baby born
One more mouth to feed
Sometimes I can't comprehend
This urge to breed
Travel through a crowded land
Where people love each other as they love the state
They love their work
Their work is love
Love's no excuse to procreate
Their party slogan reads
And I quote
Making love is a mental disease
It wastes time and
Depletes our energies

So I ask what does sex mean to me
And what does sex mean to society
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me

I see couples walking hand in hand
What does sex mean to them
Worried women switch
From pills to diaphragms
What does sex mean to them
My parents wonder how
They made me what I am
What does sex mean to them
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me

Now I wonder what you think about
When you're lying there in bed
Someday I think I'll find you out
Push my finger through your forehead
It's just a kind of acupuncture
Wisdom from the east
When my finger presses your third eye
Your secret life is released

What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me
What does sex mean to me

    General CommentIt means he worked at shoe store that sold boots to Betty Ford.

    My InterpretationAt its heart, the song is all about how a man hears some Cultural Revolution-era propaganda about Chinese society which he believes and takes at face value. He then compares that idea of society to his impression of his own society.
