Old man's ass
Fifty heads wide
Old man's ass
Could stretch a battle ship,
Side to side to side to side to side to side to side to side

Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Stretch my neck to look up to him
Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Fit for the kill

There's a flower thief in my back yard again,
I'll grin my teeth to make him stay,
Trap him in my flower bed and then
I'll feed him with my paraffin.
Feed him with my paraffin.
Stretch my neck to look up to him.

Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Stretch my neck to look up to him
Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Are we all wrapped up, fit for the kill
Are we all wrapped up, stacked up together
Stretch my neck to look up to him.

Old man got me in the eye again
Stretch my neck to look up to him.
Stuck his bony finger in.
Stretch my neck to look up to him.
Turned me round and did it all again.
Stretch my neck to look up to him.
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin

Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Are we all wrapped up, wrapped up together
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin
Now I smell like paraffin

    It is awesome. Aside from the old man's ass part, i think its pretty straight forward. I feel it has something to do with trying to have this guy ...and feed him paraffin (wax)? doing so, she begins to smell like it. well, i think it really depends on what she means by paraffin and its significance. I doubt she means it literally. it probably is symbolic/an analogy for something else. It may have to do with paraffin being something that is burned. Paraffin is also used in cooking, and also is used as a laxative. if it is the latter, ide say Ruby is quite the potty mouth.

    My Interpretation

    If this isn't a song about sodomy, I don't know what is.

    I think that this song is much more imaginative that just talking about sex. .. an ass is not only a bottom but also a donkey. This animal was use in the past to stretch boats aside channels. . This would better fit with this song? For the rest of the lyrics this makes me think about this horror movie with a psycho who fills the victim bodies with parafin to conserve them. In the song the psycho is also killed as he smells like parafin too at the end !

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
