"Nancy Boy" as written by and Molko/olsdal/schultzberg....
Alcoholic kind of mood
Lose my clothes
Lose my lube
Cruising for a piece of fun
Looking out for number one
Different partner every night
So narcotic outta sight
What a gas
what a beautiful ass

And it all breaks down at the role reversal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

Kind of buzz that lasts for days
Had some help from insect ways
Comes across all shy and coy
Just another nancy boy
Woman man or modern monkey
Just another happy junkie
Fifty pounds
Press my button
Going down

And it all breaks down at the role reversal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

does his makeup in his room
Douse himself with cheap perfume
Eyeholes in a paper bag
Greatest lay I ever had
Kind of guy who mates for life
Gotta help him find a wife
We're a couple
When our bodies double

And it all breaks down at the role reversal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

And it all breaks down at the role reversal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal
Got the muse in my head she's universal
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me

    General CommentAn anthem for all the girly boys of the world, Nancy Boy represents the next generation of males who care as much about gender roles as modern girls do. You don;t have to do what you were told growing up as a boy, the world is open and waiting for you. Grab your mascara, get yourself a groovy skirt and live your life in total freedom. If, that is, you want to. Choice. That's what it's all about. Girls have been fighting for choice for the last century and boys, sorry, but you're being left behind. Forget sexuality for just one moment and do what the hell makes you feel happy.

    General CommentThe song is about bisexuality, getting messed up and about doing a kickass rock song. :)

    General Commenti totally agree, it's about being proud of ur sexuality. it shows that it doesn't matter if u like boys or girls, just 2 have fun.

    General Commentthe meaning of this song is pretty obvious and if someone didnt get it, you guys summed it up quite well. just wanted to say that, "eyeholes in a paper bag, greatest lay I ever had," is such a fun line. ::sigh:: brian i heart you..

    General CommentIt's all about the lead singer who isn't afraid to be feminine. I think it's a great song even if you can't understand what he's saying.

    General Commenti wrote a story about this song, influenced by a dream that i had. it was about meeting brian molko in a shoe shop and i asked him something, and he turned up his nose at me. When i met him, i think he hated me because i had blonde hair, or i looked too much like britney spears or something. i love the guy's image, but i get the idea that he is selfish. Does that come with the image? I dont know. i like it though. i like his hair.
