"Sour Cherry" as written by and James Hince Alison Mosshart....
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
'Cause you crossed my mind, you crossed my mind
Made my blood thump Saturday night
Make my heart beat double time
Now I'm only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand

Shout when you wanna get off the ride
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
'Cause you crossed my mind, you crossed my mind
I'm a penny in a diamond mine
We could be movers
We could be shakers
If we could just shake somethin' outta the blue
We could get off the ride
I'm the only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand?
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on your fruit stand?

G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
G-g-g-go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over over
Go go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
Go go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over over
Go go home it's over


I'm the only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand?
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on your fruit stand?

G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
G-g-g-go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over over
Go go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
Go go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over over
Go go home it's over

    General CommentHot song. I think it's just about thinking about someone, and being frustrated about it, and wishing you could get them off your mind. Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand?=Am I the only sad person in the world?

    General CommentI agree. It sounds like she doesn't feel herself worthy. She is the "penny in the diamond mind". It's about standing out because you're unique. That isn't always a good thing, though....who wants a sour cherry when they could have something sweet?

    General CommentI saw them perform this on Conan on April 29th. superb.

    It could be about being under appreciated by a person you're interested in. There are other prospects for that person, sweeter cherries, so you don't get their time.

    giving up, you just go home, it's over.

    General CommentTo clarify, I meant "standing out TO YOUR CRUSH because you're unique", not just standing out in general.

    General Commentso he popped her cherry, so they had sex and and she lost her virginity. She was/is a sour cherry so she didn't enjoy it very much, or she thinks that he didn't. Shout when you wanna get off the ride, shout when you wanna dump me or just stop sleeping with me or w/e. He's had sex with bunch of people, but she's the only one it turned out badly with. And I'm a penny in a diamond mine. Why should he choose her when there are diamonds all over?

    General Commenthottest and most underrated song on the album.

    for me, it's about a friends with benefits relationship, where the girl feels totally underappreciated. he leaves her hanging all the time, doesn't answer her calls, doesn't pay much attention to her. he goes off and hooks up with other girls. this makes her believe that she's not worthy of his attention or time (being the sour cherry on his fruit stand, a penny in a diamond mine).

    shes unhappy about it and needs to get out of this mess, so she's telling herself to "get off the ride".

    General CommentSeems to me she's confronting a guy for sleeping around and making her feel like she's not good enough for him. When he doesn't respond properly, she tells him to piss off xD
