"The Once Over Twice" as written by and John Doe Exene Cervenka....
I just heard the sad song by another band sung by another man he gave me the once over twice I said when he said okay so long he hung me with the endless rope I could throw my lipstick and bracelets like gravel and move to alabama I got some more scotch instead then I died a thousand times he hung me with the endless rope then I died a thousand times maybe you don't but I do got a hole in my heart size of my heart size of my heart he hung me with the endless rope I'll see you and I'll raise you off the floor I'll floor you and we'll dance without a band I just heard the sad song hang another man he hung me with the endless rope

    General CommentSome self-absorbed jerk in a band is pursuing the girl (presumably Exene) and when she shows some interest back (asking "when", as in, when can they see each other again) he ditches her ("okay so long") because he's in it for the chase, not the catch.

    She gets upset ("I could throw my lipstick and bracelets like gravel and move to Alabama, I got some more scotch instead") and every time she's reminded of what the motherfucker did to her she's humiliated that she fell for the trick and mortified that she still feels something for him ("then I died a thousand times/ hung me with the endless rope")

    As a result, she feels empty and hopeless ("got a hole in my heart size of my heart") and possibly bitter towards men ("hang another man, he hung me with the endless rope"). In summation, this song is so great because that is exactly what it feels like.
