"Some Folks" as written by Robert A. Ezrin, Alan Gordon and Alice Cooper....
Some folks
Love to see red
Some folks
Never talk about it
Some folks
Crave a blue lady
Some folks
Know and still they doubt it

I'm just no good without it
I'm not a man at all
It makes my skin crawl

Baby, baby
Come on and save me, save me
My, my baby, baby,
Come on and save me now

Some folks
Love to feel pain
Some folks
Wake up every mornin';
Some folks
Live for no reason
Some folks
Die without a warning

I'm just no good without it
I'm not a man at all
It makes my skin crawl

Baby, baby
Come on and save me, save me
My, my baby, baby,
Come on and save me, save me
My, my baby, baby
Come on and save me now

I can't live without it
I just can't live without it
I don't want to think about it

I'm just no good without it
I'm not a man at all
It makes my skin crawl

Baby, baby
Come on and save me, save me
My, my baby, baby,
Come on and save me, save me
My, my baby, baby
Come on and save me, save me,
My, my baby, baby
Come on and save me, save me

I can't live without it
I just can't live without it
I don't want to think about it

    General Comment...Much like "Cold Ethyl" in the Refrigerator, this song is about Alcohol. Seeing "Red" is Wine...a "Blue Lady" is a Cocktail (and also, brilliant foreshadowing for "Cold Ethyl").

    General CommentI agree with all the comments, but nobody's looking at the lyrics. So - a really catchy, jaunty little ditty that gets your feet tapping & your fingers snapping & is about extreme domestic violence! Love it. Only Alice could get away with it.

    Song MeaningI'm afraid morbid morag is wrong. This song is about poops of different colors. The man is intrigued with the oddly shaped and colored poops so he looks down and names them all things like "blue lady" and "red." He also loves to feel pain.

    Song MeaningThis song is about drug addition/withdrawal. The "blue lady" is a a synthetic heroin. It is pretty self explanatory if you understand the drug references.

    "love to see red" is NOT "get angry as in common slang but refers to the way blood is pulled into a syringe before injecting heroin, blue lady is synthetic heroin, and the skin crawl references are the withdrawal symptoms (heroin addicts have been know to scratch off their skin in withdrawal possible because of hallucinations)

    Cheers

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. What the hell is wrong with you people, this is like essential Alice. If you don't like this song you must be gay or something.
