"The Real Snow White" as written by Robert James Smith, Jason Toop Cooper, Simon Gallup and Porl Thompson....
You've got what I want

Oh yeah!
It's only for the night
And I will give it back tomorrow I swear
She can barely breathe
Don't stare
I know the dress is tight
But it was all I had to wear
Give me what I need
Please share
You know it's only right
And I would never lie to you
I wouldn't dare

[Chorus]
I made a promise to myself
I wouldn't start with anyone else but
You know how it is with these promises

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made to be broken in two
Sometimes the only thing to do

Oh no!
It's all coming back
How I came to in a sticky three-day hole
Didn't see the sign
Go slow
Too busy tuning static on the radio
She hissed it in a song
Don't go
It always fades to black
But that's why I love the trip
It's so inevitable

[Chorus]

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made to be less than they seem
Whenever you've got what I need

And you've got what I need

For service with a smile
I have to walk in on my hands
And roll for free
You say it's all the same
Ennui
You're not the real snow white
The real snow white is on my knee I didn't need to get
Id
It's simply minimum height
And getting all dressed up
In seven ways to please

[Chorus]

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made to be broken one day
If there's no time to get away

Uh-oh!
She wasn't made to shine
She was really only ever made to glow
I left her in the dark
No show
Quiet sucking on a line
It was a tricky gun to load
And I didn't get to fire
Hi-ho!
She's off to work for time
I should have finished out with higher
Up than low

[Chorus]

Made in the heat of the moment
They're made before right becomes wrong
Whenever you've got what I want

And you've got what I want

Oh yeah!
It's only for the night
And I will give it back tomorrow
I swear

    General CommentProbably my favorite song on the new album. I love all of the sexual undertones in the song. I'm sure this song could be interpreted in a couple different ways, the most obvious being a guy not being able to keep up with some kind of committment to another girl.

    I think this song is about Cocaine, crack-cocaine, or maybe Heroin, which would reference "The Real Snow White", and the entire story is how she is dependent on acquiring this for a source, likely selling herself for some. The entire "you've got what I want, oh yeah, it's only for tonight, and i'll give it back tomorrow i swear", and the "hi-ho, she's off to work on time". Awesome references and points off return.

    General Commenti think it's about a wild girl whos satisfying her lover, she's got what he wants, she does all that he wants for him. It's crazy how this whole album is about i don't want innocent girls, i want sex, that's all. i hope it's not RS for real, or he aint the real snow man!
