she's a sly cat; plaster white
shoots her mouth like a firing squad, uh huh
see her ruby jive
swingin' her hips like the Aphrodite

well, sugar ain't free, it's a lemonade
i spit a couple of teeth trying to get her name, uh huh

flash dance, miss divine
bought her a couple mixed drinks and a brandy wine, uh huh
then she starts to crack
i slip her my key, she can't hand it back, uh huh

well she's only 19, but she's doing fine and i've been out five weeks and i need a ride, uh huh

my hotel room comes equipped with a very nice bedroom and a window miss de milo
if you want to room 16 at the continental
undercover love

hello femme fatale
there's an intimate ball at the carnival, uh huh
won't you spend the night?
we can dance to an early light, uh huh

it's you and me and my lips are sealed
so why not be who you really feel, uh huh

large hotel room comes equipped with a very nice bedroom and a window miss de milo
if you want to room 16 at the continental
undercover love

she said 'do me once again'
i took the apple from her hand
she said she knows me
yeah, she knows me
paris lets her out at night.

my hotel room comes equipped with a very nice bedroom and a window miss de milo
if you want to room 16 at the continental
undercover love

    General Commentcan't can't can't get this song out of my head.

    apparently about a secret love affair in the continental with a 19 year old.

    sure the story's not great, but god, i love this song. it made me fall in love with this band.

    "my hotel room comes equipped with a very nice bedroom"

    not exactly poetry, but damn catchy

    General CommentFirst I want to say that WATF are geniouses. They play a wicked live show too. But here is a pretty good theory about this song. The "Venus De Milo" is a statue depicting Aphrodite, the godess of love and beauty. You probably know the statue, its the one where both arms broke off. Anyways, in the left hand, before it broke, it held an apple. References in the song being "plaster white" (she's a statue) "swingin' her hips like the Aphrodite" (thats who the statue is of) "she starts to crack" (old statue) "slip her my keys she can't hand them back" (no arms) "Miss De Milo" (name of statue) "i took the apple from her hand" (missing apple in hand) "Paris lets her out at night" (reference to greek mythology). Personally, I think this totally makes the song hilarious and clever as piss. Way to go Jeremy:]

    General CommentAlso, the Venus De Milo was famous in the 19th century, so maybe that has something to do with "she's only 19 but she's doing fine"??
