Hey Mr. Dancin
My drink is on a short leash
My mouth is a coldsore display case
Here's a tip - you could take a lot of abuse if you exchange your skin for leather
All over town they've got these like messenger girls that ride around on innertubes
Their asses are all scraped up
Their eyes cold kick me off the bus, y'all

One honey donut and our lips are stuck to the seat
You close the door on my machine girl you laugh a lot and run around
I'm out of fun and I'm stuck here

Another tempting tail in the back
The ghost of my mom is in the telephone booth
Look at that blind evil Rapunzel taking care of the guy who beat her up
Ooh I hope you call soon nothing's right
I cab it to the bathtub
Sugar and wine, a dozen sharks, and a bar of soap of course

    General CommentI think this song is about groupies, and the mixed feelings one gets from being with them. This would be especially true in the early to mid-nineties when the song was written. Rock and roll excess was kinda passe' at the time, but Shudder To Think were kind of the exception to the rule, especially in the UBER-P/C world of DC hardcore from which the band sprang. I think STT embraced that culture with a knowing wink and a nod.

    "My mouth is a cold sore display case." - STD imagery, anyone?

    "All over town they've got these like messenger girls that ride around on innertubes" - Girls that go from band to band riding on condom covered cocks.

    "Their asses are all scraped up, their eyes cold." - They've been used and abused and are completely numb to any emotional attachment.

    "Kick me off the bus, y'all." - A bandmember has to wait outside while his bandmate gets his groove on in the tour bus.

    "One honey donut and your lips are stuck to the seat" - After a sweet piece of ass ("honey donut") you're getting sick ("lips are stuck to the seat") the seat being the toilet.

    I think you get the picture.
