What's got you so jumpy?
Why can't you sit still, yeah?
Like gasoline you want to pump me
And leave me when you get your fill, yeah
Every time I touch you honey you get hot
I want to make love you never stop
Come up for air you push me to the floor
What's been going on in that head of yours

[Chorus]
Unskinny bop
Just blows me away
Unskinny bop, bop
All night and day
Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop
She just loves to play
Unskinny bop nothin' more to say

You look at me so funny
Love bite got you acting oh so strange
You got too many bees in your honey
Am I just another word in your page, yeah, yeah
Every time I touch you honey you get hot
I want to make love you never stop
Come up for air you push me to the floor
What's been going on in that head of yours

[Chorus]

You're sayin' my love won't do ya
But that ain't love written on your face
Well honey I can see right through ya
We'll see whose ridin' who at the end of the race

What's right
What's wrong
What's left
What the hell is going on

[Chorus]

    General Comment:FYI to all the younger music fans. If you were a guy in the 80s who actually liked Poison you would get your ass beat like a drum. If you wanna know all about Poison just look at their first album cover (and No it wasn't cool at the time).

    General Comment:this song doesnt really have a meanin. poison were doing the music for it and there was a hot girl in the room. bret wanted to get her attention, if you know wat i mean, so he started singing sexual lyrics which later became unskinny bop. The title "Unskinny Bop" has no particular meaning, which guitarist C.C Deville later confessed. The phrase was used on the basis that it was phonetically suited to the music. The song was later played to producer, Fairbairn, who stated that although he did not know what an "unskinny bop" was, the phrase was perfect.
    I hope this helps you understand how this great song came to be perfection......

    General Comment:I remember hearing back in 1990 when this song was big that it was about getting it on with a large, insatiable woman. I can't remember who, but it came from a member of Poison, perhaps on MTV???

    General Comment:this has to be one of the lamest lyrics in rock history. Riddled with bad rock cliches, a bassline so simple a monkey could play it, and Unskinny = phat. Clever, no. Poison had some OK songs, but I cant believe people actually like this one. ?

    General Comment:Yeah an easy bassline, but the rhythm guitar in the verses is pretty sweet.

    General Comment:In the song "Home (Bret's Story)" it makes reference to Unskinny Bop... Bret says...
    "Nick asks me what the hell unskinny bop means,
    it's slang for C.C. banging a prono queen "
