"Tipp City" as written by and Kim Deal....
Cottonhead, cottonhead
I say I will not
Go to Sobercity I won't
Curtailed times,
Once all the best was mine
Tipp City, I'm still here

Tammy all day
I hate old people I do
Everything dispensed that we missed
The busting studs said it was good

You got me going, You got me going

Peacock caught looking in a mirror
Stop drinking my beer
With dawn patrol on
I want to be a city official
'Cause no one gets ya

You got me going, You got me going

Cottonhead, cottonhead
I have relations
With anonymous internet nation
Curtailed times
Once all the best was mine
Tipp City yea, I'm still here.

You got me going, You got me going

    General CommentWow, there's so much drunken sexual tension in this song. I say it's about nothing but getting drunk and going on the prowl for a lay.

    I've also got to point out that this is one of the earliest songs to reference the Internet: "I have relations/with anonymous Internet nation."

    General CommentReferences to Tipp city in Ohio? I'm from Cincinnati and dawn patrol and cottonhead might be references to local radio shows in the area. (That might be looking into it too much though...)

    General CommentYes this is in reference to Tipp City Ohio, a place with nothing to do but get drunk and roll around town. Could really be about any small midwestern town. The Deal sisters hail from Dayton and Tipp City is a bit north.
