"All the Pretty Girls" as written by and Jokull Juliusson David Nils Olof Antonsson....
All the pretty girls like Samuel
Oh, he really doesn't share
Although it's more than he can handle
Life is anything but fair, life is anything but fair

Oh oh, oh oh ooh
Oh oh, oh oh
Just as soon as they turn older
He'll come and sweep them off their feet
It's only making me feel smaller
All the hidden love beneath

So won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
You lay me, won't you lay me down

All alone, alone again
No one lends a helping hand
I have waited, I have waited
Takes it's toll, my foolish pride
How long before I see the light
I have waited, I have waited
For you to lay me down

Sail on by, sail on by for now
They play naked in the water
You know it's hard, heaven knows I've tried
But it just keeps getting harder

So won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me, won't you lay

Oh, won't you lay me, oh won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me, oh won't you lay me down
Oh, won't you lay me, won't you lay me down
Won't you lay me down

Oh, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait for you
Yeah, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait for you
Oh, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait for you
Oh, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait for you

For you to lay me, won't you let me down

    My InterpretationThis song seems to appear in my opinion about a boy who seems to be in a terrible situation and thought having a girl in his life relinquish the dark with the light. However it seems that even he can't have that especially when he says
    "No one lends a helping hand
    I have waited, I have waited
    Takes it's toll, one's foolish pride
    How long before I see the light."
    So in the end lay me down could mean he wants to die after trying to find hope in his life only to watch it cause more internal conflict with other people like Samuel.

    My InterpretationVirginity. The struggles of a male saving himself, and more so, falling in love with someone that he can't have - or is not yet ready to have him and requires experiencing someone else first.

    General CommentI am pretty sure the singer is singing this song to Samuel. He wants Samuel to lay him down. It seems to me its a coming of age song.

    General CommentThis song screams misogyny. I don't know if they're being tongue-in-cheek or not, but I hope so.
