Rock boy
His genital sack juice mad
His delicious apparatus
Would flutter and tremble
After heated worship
He would freeze it in a jar
And sell it to celebrity lesbians
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never fuck around
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never buy the pound
Good work if you can get it
Rock boy
His genital sack juice mad
His delicious apparatus
Would flutter and tremble

After heated worship
He would freeze it in a jar
And sell it to celebrity lesbians
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can fucking get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never fuck around
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They're fuckin you around
Fuck
Fuck
Fuck
Fuck
They wanna buy it in grams
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never fuck around
They wanna it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never fuck around

    General Comment:Interesting song :D At first I thought it was about drugs (they wanna buy it in kilos, they wanna buy it in grams) but then I realised theres that bit at the beginning about a rock star jerking off and then selling his frozen sperm to celebrity lesbians o.0
    A deeper meaning might be that its about celebrity culture and the ridiculous things it can make people do, but I'm not sure
