You're so nice, you tie me in a web

And cradle me till dawn.

You're so deadly that I can see your breath

Beneath me when you're gone.

You're so windy, I'd like to pin you down

And tack you to the wall,



Spiderman, Spiderman.



Spider Sunday, you blaze up from the south

With oil on your hands.

I'm streaked in grease and grime and idle mouths.

You've spoiled all my plans,



Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman.



I can't take more of that.

I can't take more of that.

I can't take more of that.

I can't take more of that.

Whoa, ho-oh, Whoa, ho-oh. Whoa, ho-oh. Ho-oh.

Whoa, ho-oh, Whoa, ho-oh. Whoa, ho-oh. Ho-oh.

Whoa, ho-oh, Whoa, ho-oh. Whoa, ho-oh. Ho-oh.



Tiny truckstop, you lay me in a towel

And savor me like a lamb.

You smell of corduroy and lemon drops

And reds pulled from a can.

I dream in black and white,

I've long forgot exactly, who I am, am,

A Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman.

Whoa, ho-oh, Whoa, ho-oh. Whoa, ho-ho. Ho-oh. Spiderman.

Whoa, ho-oh, Whoa, ho-oh. Whoa, ho-oh. Ho-oh. Spiderman.

Whoa, ho-oh, Whoa, ho-oh. Whoa, ho-oh. Ho-oh. Spiderman.

    General Commentthe songs really called spiderman '79. I think it's about an affect of a broken relationship "you're so nice, you tie me in a web"

    General CommentThe songmeanings.net default answer appears to be: "It's about a relationship". I've no idea what this is about, but "relationship" is not necessarily the answer every time, for every song.

    General CommentIt seems like it's about, not necessarily a relationship, but someone who continuously makes plans and promises, then backs out.

    It's why she calls the person "windy" and talks about how she wants to tack them down.

    General CommentThis might sound really disturbing, but this song kind of sounds like someone getting kidnapped and raped.
    "Tiny truckstop, you lay me in a towel

    And savor me like a lamb."

    I dunno.

    General CommentGonna have to agree with OAMM. The mood this song evokes is so sinister, and with lines like "Tiny truckstop, you lay me in a towel and savor me like a lamb," it's not that far a stretch.

    General CommentI can't believe that this song has no comments. I can't believe that the lyrics can't even be posted here. I can't believe that my comment adds nothing whatsoever.

    Always thought this song was hot though...

    General CommentSounds like she's singing about a really controlling guy taken away her identity.
