"Gentlemen" as written by and Greg Dulli....
Your attention, please
Now turn off the light
Your infection, please
I haven't got all night
Understand, do you understand?
Understand, I'm a gentleman
I'm a gentleman

I stayed in too long
But she was the perfect fit
And we dragged it out so long this time
Started to make each other sick

But now I've got time for you
For you, you, you and me to
Well, come and get it, come and get it
Cause I'm done

Understand, do you understand?
Understand, I'm a gentleman

I waited for the joke, it never did arrive
And words I thought I'd smoke

Let me in I'm cold
All messed up but nowhere to go
You got indecision, and indecision is my enemy
Unlock the cabinet, hey hey hey
I'll take whatever you got, got, got
Now I'm on it, now I'm on it
And you're done

I waited for the joke
It never did arrive
And words I thought I'd choke
I hardly recognize

    General CommentI think this song is about calling yourself a gentleman, when you aren't and you're only fucking the women and leaving them, even being impatient

    General Commentamazing album, amazing song. Greg Dulli manages to pour all of his bile into his work. He has said the album title is a reference to public restrooms and the dark secrets they tend to hide.
