Natalie Merchant – Sally Ann Lyrics 9 years ago
The speaker is noting places around the world where prostitution is prominent which is really any place.
"A woman of beauty, A woman of pain."

"You go home with Sally Ann"
This is a representation of purity.

Counting Crows – Monkey Lyrics 9 years ago
To me it speaks about a woman that the speaker is in love with but doesn't know when he will see her again because she is Flakky. ("Isn't it a shame"), "Where you've been?"

The use of "Monkey" can be a sarcastic way of the speaker calling her reckless or haphazard with his emotions.

"Monkey" is also a slang term for Vagina.

He wants her to pay some attention to him "I just want a little light to fall on me"

He's appealing to her sensitive side but as a monkey she can't understand him, they speak two different languages.

Natalie Merchant – Owensboro Lyrics 9 years ago
At the end when she repeats But when that day
Of judgement comes she says
"They'll Learn to share their pretty things"
Listen attentively:

But when that day
Of judgement comes
They'll have to share
Their pretty things

But when that day
Of judgement comes
They'll Learn to share their pretty things

Almost before they learn to walk
They learn to spin and spool

~Not spoon but spool~

This is in reference to weaving

Natalie Merchant – Cowboy Romance Lyrics 9 years ago
"Spare the innocent ones" refers to the fact that this not so innocent woman woman would like the younger women with soft exteriors to be left alone. She volunteers her experienced "been there done that" self.

"Spare the innocent ones" also gives the feel of an old west, cowboy, wandering feeling.

Natalie Merchant – I May Know The Word Lyrics 9 years ago
This song is about not being able to open up because of insecurities. She used a few metaphors to get the point across.
Grey is used as a representative of the space between the night (black, darkness) and the day (white, light) Those two colors mixed or as it relates to the mood of the song are meshed together, which form gray.
