In the deserts of Sudan
And the gardens of Japan
From Milan to Yucatan
Every woman, every man

Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Hit me! Hit me!
Je t'adore, ich liebe dich,
Hit me! hit me! hit me!
Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Hit me slowly, hit me quick.
Hit me! Hit me! Hit me!

In the wilds of Borneo
And the vineyards of Bordeaux
Eskimo, Arapaho
Move their body to and fro.

Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Hit me! Hit me!
Das ist gut! C'est fantastique!
Hit me! hit me! hit me!
Hit me with your rhythm stick.
It's nice to be a lunatic.
Hit me! Hit me! Hit me!

Hit me! Hit me! Hit me!
In the dock of Tiger Bay
On the road to Mandalay
From Bombay to Santa Fe
Over hills and far away

Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Hit me! Hit me!
C'est si bon, mm? Ist es nicht?
Hit me! hit me! hit me!
Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Two fat persons, click, click, click.
Hit me! Hit me! Hit me!

Hit me! Hit me! Hit me!
Hit me!
Hit me!
Hit me! Ow!
Hit me!
Hit me!
Hit me! hit me!

Hit me [Repeat: x 5]

Hit me! Hit me! Hit me!

    In hindsight, posting this lyric was sort of a futile effort. I love this song, but you really have to hear it to appreciate it. And its not like there's that much debate about what the lyrics mean, or what the song means...

    It doesn't really make a lot of sense but it still kicks ass.

    It was right around this time I remember the Blockheads picked up the tag "best band in rock n roll".

    This song actually played on an episode of Doctor Who and the Doctor says, "It's good to be a lunitic" instead of nice. I was annoyed. Lol

    Funny song, though!

    Rhythm is universal--that's what I get out of it. Of course, it could also be about the universality of interest in BDSM, or about the universality of tenderizing meat. Who cares? LOL!

    My Opinion

    Rhythm stick is a euphemism for cock. Dury is expressing his desire to be dick-slapped
