Into cordouroys or jeans, chinos or capris
Sweater vest, no sleeves, Oxford underneath or whatever you think
Whatever is going make you want me
Come on and dress me
I’ll be your mannequin
Make me attractive, so sexy and thin
I will stand still, pose me in any position
And when people pass by the window, I’ll be adored by them
I want to be one of the boys from the catalogues that you flip through
You’ll point and say, "He’s the one"
(Lick your finger, turn the page, slick gloss over images)
And you waste no time deciding
You grab the credit card, call, start ordering
But what’s new for fall by spring means nothing
I want to undress you in your walk-in closet
After you try on one of your new outfits
I know that six months later you won’t be caught dead in it
But for that moment you’re there with your shape hanging everywhere
And it looks perfect, just perfect
I don't think she likes me, not with this new haircut
I don't think she likes me, I shouldn't eat so much

    My InterpretationThis song, like every song on the CD, mocks a certain aspect of life; however, I feel there is a dual meaning here. These "fashion trends" are not only actual fads that people fall into, but they are also the ever-changing sources of happiness and problems in a relationship. In this sense, I feel that when the trend is pursued, it will indubitably end with a feeling of apathy or disgust, even though the person (or couple) is so intent on following this pursuit. These trends are constantly different, and in the same way, so are the explorations of couples.
