"Funplex" as written by and Rick James Alonzo Miller....
I'm a pleasure seeker, shoppin' for a new distraction
I'm a pleasure seeker, lookin' for some platinum action
I'm a pleasure seeker, movin' to the music
I'm a pleasure seeker, lookin' for the real thing

Chandelabras in a WonderBra, oh
Chris Barnes runway, a real draw, oh
Faster pussycat, thrill, thrill
I'm at the mall on a diet pill

Oh, broke my heart at the Funplex
Yes you did, yes you did
Oh, broke my heart at the Funplex
Yes you did, yes you did

The taco tiki hut is where we're all gonna meet
Underneath the chandelier at the ATM machine
Oh honey, is it all about money?

Hey lady
What?
What lady?
That lady?
No

Private property, hippy be quiet
Your peace sign t-shirt could cause a riot
Faster, faster can't get enough
What the hell will I do with this stuff?

I'm your daytime waitress at the taco tiki hut
I'm your daytime waitress, here's your stupid 7-Up
You kicked my heart going up and down the escalator
You blew me off and now you've lost the real thing

Oh, broke my heart at the Funplex
Yes you did, yes you did
Oh, broke my heart at the Funplex
Yes you did, yes you did

You know fashion frenzy gets me higher and higher (panic at the Funplex)
No will power and my wallet's on fire

Fashion frenzy gets me higher and higher (panic at the Funplex)
No will power and my wallet's on fire

Oh, broke my heart
Oh, broke my heart
Panic at the Funplex

Faster, faster, thrill, thrill
Too much to do, it's time for a pill
Oh, broke my heart, panic at the Funplex

Misery at the Funplex
And there's too much sex
The world is going to hell
And what is that horrible smell? (Panic at the Funplex)
Oh, oh, oh

Faster, faster, thrill, thrill (oh, oh)
Faster, faster, thrill, thrill (oh)
Too much to do, it's time for a pill

    General CommentThis song is about how the B52s have suddenly become elderly and have taken to ranting about damn kids and their sex and malls and the like

    General CommentYou know, if you watch the music video, they kinda resemble the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. I kinda find it scary the fact that the B-52's are back. So close to 2012, I don't wanna take any chances.

    General Commentbiblo, that's only part of the story! I think the B-52s are acting out different characters you might see in the mall, like crazed shoppers ("my wallet's on fire", "i'm a pleasure seeker"), crotchety old people ("the world's going to hell"), grumpy/rude waitresses ("here's your stupid 7-up"), and.....security personnel? i don't know what the whole "private property! hippie, be quiet!" thing was about. anyway. that's my take.

    General Commentenny_buddy nailed it. It's like scenes from a mall.

    Song's very catchy, but then, most B-52's songs are!

    General Comment"That horrible smell" is supposed to be a grease fire in the mall's food court, as seen in the video. But it could also represent the stenches which are supposed to be characteristic of hell.

    Cindy sometimes varies her lyrics slightly live. ;-)
