"Wendy Time" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Boris Williams and Perry Bamonte....
You look like you could do with a friend she said
You look like you could use a hand
Someone to make you smile she said
Someone who can understand
Share your trouble
Comfort you
Hold you close
And I can do all of these
I think you need me here with you
You look like you do with a sister she said
You look like you need a girl to call your own

Like fabulous! fabulous!
Call me fabulous!
And rubbing her hands so slow
You stare at me all strange she said
Are you hungry for more?
I've had enough I said
Please leave me alone
Please go

It doesn't touch me at all
It doesn't touch me at all

You know that you could do with a friend she said
You know that you could use a word
Like feel or follow or fuck she said
And laughing away as she turned
You've everything but no-one
Like the last man on earth
And when I die I said
I'll leave you it all
Door closes
Leaves me cold

It doesn't touch me at all
It doesn't touch me at all

You really do need a sister she said
You really do need a girl to call your own

Like wonderful! wonderful!
Call me wonderful!
And running her hands so slow
You stare at me all strange she said
Are you hungry for more?
I've had enough I said
Please leave me alone
Please go
Please go

    General CommentI think this song could mean that there was a woman, who wanted more from Robert (sex). And he gets tempted, but fights that temptation and wants to stay loyal to Mary. hmm.. that's what I think though

    General CommentI, controversially, think that this song is about Siouxsie.

    General Commentif its about siouxsie, wouldn't it appear a bit earlier on? like just after he supposedly 'ditched' the banshees two weeks before an extensive tour? siouxsie still seems angry at him, i read this interview with her...

    General CommentI remember reading somewhere that Wendy was a hooker.

    Robert Smith is a genius.

    General Commenti think it's about a cheap fuck. sorry to be blunt but that's what i get out of it. it's best played on play-out/ secret gig. sometimes just a primal cheap meaningless night of sharing one another can be good. it can make you love the one you love that much more. it can release tension built up between two people so that the relationship whether personal or business can get done.

    General CommentI kind of disagree with most of the comments. You're forgeting about his perspective and response to her advances;
    "Please leave me alone.
    Please go.
    It doesn't touch me at all.
    It doesn't touch me at all."
    She maybe offering, but he isn't interested. She comes across as shallow and insincere to him. And I doubt the she in this song is Siouxie, or anyone particular individual. Also, Wendy's personality kind of seems like; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… .
