"Pencil Skirt" as written by Nick Banks, Jarvis Branson Cocker, Candida Doyle, Stephen Patrick Mackey, Russell Senior and Mark Andrew Webber....
When you raise your pencil skirt
Like a veil before my eyes
Like the look upon his face as he's zipping up his flies
Oh, well, I know that you're engaged to him
Oh, but I know that you want something to play with baby

I'll be around when he's not in town
Oh, yeah, I'll show you how you're doing it wrong
Oh, I really love it when you tell me to stop, oh-oh
Oh, it's turning me on

Now, you can tell some lies
About the good times that you've had
But I've kissed your mother twice
And now I'm working on your Dad
Oh, baby

I'll be around when he's not in town
Oh, yeah, I'll show you how you're doing it wrong
Oh, I really love it when you tell me to stop, oh-oh
Oh, it's turning me on

If you look under the bed,
Then I can see my house from here
So just lie against the wall
And watch my conscience disappear now baby

Yeah, I'll be around when he's not in town
Oh, yeah, I'll show you how you're doing it wrong
Oh, I really love it when you tell me to stop, oh-oh
Oh, it's turning me on

I only come here cause I know it makes you sad
I only do it cause I know you know it's bad, oh, don't you know
That it's ugly and it shouldn't be like that
Oh, but oh it's turning me on, oh

    General CommentPure Sleaze - Yep Dildo, who lives under the bed - 'can see my house from here'
    'lies about good times that you've had' <--- boasting to friends about having sex with a man/ but really just a dildo.
    both your mum and dad have used aid to help thier love lives :| gross. "kissed your mother twice workign on your dad" (though get a mental image of her mum kissing it twice,.. then sticking it up dads butt" LOL
    Only dildo's dont care if they are turned off - ie 'love it when you tell me to stop' ' oh it's turning me on' refers to the fact that it's still hard even after being turned off..

    All other lines are quite obvious lol 'i'l be around when he's not in town'

    General Commentnow this is what I'd put on if I wanted to screw. It's kinky, but the music is sorta hot, although too short. Besides that, huminahuminahumina

    General CommentI think this song is about a man sleeping with an older, married woman. The 'pencil skirt' seems to suggest an older, more sophisticated person than she. She sleeps with him, even though she knows it's wrong, but it is the wrongness of it all that gets her lover off.

    General CommentI don't see any way to suggest a correction to the lyrics, so here is an accurate version:

    When you raise your pencil skirt
    Like a veil before my eyes
    Like the look upon his face as he's zipping up his flies
    Well I know, that you're engaged to him
    Oh, but I know, you want something to play with baby

    I'll be around when he's not in town, oh
    Yeah, I'll show you how you're doin' it wrong, oh
    I really love it when you tell me to stop, oh
    Oh it's turning me on.

    Now you can tell us some lies about the good times that you've had
    But I've kissed your mother twice and now I'm working on your dad, oh baby

    I'll be around when he's not in town, oh
    Yeah, I'll show you how you're doin' it wrong, oh
    I really love it when you tell me to stop, oh
    Oh it's turning me on.

    If you look under the bed then I can see my house from here
    So just lie against the wall
    Watch my conscience disappear, now baby

    Yeah, I'll be around when he's not in town, oh
    Oh yeah, I'll show you how you're doin' it wrong, oh
    I really love it when you tell me to stop, oh
    Oh it's turning me on, yeah.

    I only come here 'cause I know it makes you sad
    I only do it 'cause I know you know it's bad
    Oh, don't you know it's ugly and it shouldn't be like that, but
    Oh, but it's turning be on.

    General CommentYeah... a man sleeping with an older woman, whose husband may have a job that involves travelling constantly. Then she, burdened by that and lack of enthusiasm maybe, has an affair with this other man, who really enjoys the whole forbidden fruit thing and goes down hard on her ("I really love it when you tell me to stop", "Now just lie up against the wall and watch my conscience disappear") She feels a bit guilty about that and sometimes she even puts excuses to fend him off when he harasses her too much ("You can tell some lies about the good times that you've had") but they keep fucking up anyway...

    It's a hell of a song, one of the sexiest things ever recorded, weren't it for the last part of "I Spy"... Jarvis' voice here is top-notch, he gives me the creeps with that fantastic delivery. And I specially dig that cheesy guitar line that gets repeated over and over between the verses.
