"Red Dragon Tattoo" as written by Adam L. Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood....
Monday, gonna take a ride on the N train,
Down to coney island with the money I saved,
Gonna get me engraved.

Drink down a lot of Basil Hayden,
Get kicked out when I can't see straight and,
What an island to be on,
Under the neon

Red Dragon tattoo,
Is just about on me,
I got it for you,
So now do you want me,
With nothing to prove,
Will you be my honey,
Oh yeah

In you I confide,
Red Dragon Tattoo,
I'm fit to be dyed am I fit to have you

I hear the man,
Say you want to see the others,
A Mermaid,
And a heart that says mother,
But I don't know from maritime,
And I never did hard time,
I brought a .38 special CD collection,
Some bactine to prevent infection,
And Incase I get queasy,
A photo of easy rider

Red Dragon tattoo,
Is just about on me,
I got it for you,
So now do you want me,
With nothing to prove,
Will you be my honey,
Oh Yeah

In you I confide,
Red Dragon Tattoo,
I'm fit to be dyed am I fit to have you,
Will you stop pretending, I've never been born,
Now how I look a little more like that guy from korn,
If you came a little bit closer,
You'd see it isn't painted on,
Oh no no

Red Dragon tattoo,
Is just about on me,
I got it for you,
So now do you want me,
With nothing to prove,
Will you be my honey,
Oh yeah

In you I confide,
Red Dragon Tattoo,
I'm fit to be dyed,
Am I fit to have you

In you I confide,
Red Dragon Tattoo,
I'm fit to be dyed,
Am I fit to have you

    General Commentanother really great tune.

    it's just about the things people are prepared to do to get with the girl they want. getting a tattoo, changing to look like the guy from korn etc, are examples of what people are often prepared to do win someone's affections.

    interestingly, the character starts out getting drunk. a sign that not being able to get the girl has driven him to drink.
