"Greasy Jungle" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
Greasy jungle metropolis noir easy tangles the easiest so far ah
I drove down your road to hazeldean where I tasted your funeral
Home's sandwiches and coffee I saw your hands melt into one another
I saw you grieve and grow care a lot about one another

I stood at your sink and I felt your warm water I washed your dishes and
I looked out your kitchen window where I saw a
Soulful gymnast melt in the air and shudder just above the snow
Making moves that just weren't there ah velvet callow with wet

Hands I turned out the lights and breathing shallow hesitated then went upstairs
Where I picked up your housecoat dried my
Hands and touched your hair and just then you awoke you could never really barely care
Ah greasy jungle metropolis noir

    Sounds like a part of the female anatomy to me.

    General CommentI am looking at the liner notes for the CD right now and there is a photograph of a black cityscape. It seems to me that this is one of those stories where the tragedies of life are just another line in the collective history of the city. It happens so many times that it may make the city a "black metropolis" or a "greasy jungle". I don't know, am I ever right with this stuff?

    General CommentThe first line states "... metropolis noir "
    noir means black in french. hence the black city on the jacket booklet.
    what i intepret this song as is simple a dark day for the whole city. even washing the dishes is a sad task.

    General CommentThe whole song sounds like he's going down on a girl who isn't really enjoying it, and he's not really into it either, but is making the effort for her

    General CommentMy impression of the lyrics refer to this dude has mental health issues and is obsessed about this chick who works at a funeral home and he stalks her
