Sick Boy in his faded blue jeans - Sick Boy
black leather jacket seen - Sick Boy
always in trouble with the law
don't ya know? owayo - Sick Boy
he carries a switchblade knife - Sick Boy
likes to get into fights - Sick Boy
he'll go drinkin' with the boys
all night long. owayo - Sick Boy
naa naa naa naa - Sick Boy
owayo - Sick Boy
naa naa naa naa - Sick Boy
owayo - Sick Boy
he rides a big motor bike - Sick Boy
he combs his hair up just right - Sick Boy
with tatoos up and down his arms
don't ya know? owayo - Sick Boy
he's got a girl wrapped around his arm - Sick Boy
with his street-like charm - Sick Boy
he'll hang out with her all night
don't ya know? owayo - Sick Boy
naa naa naa naa - Sick Boy
owayo - Sick Boy
naa naa naa naa - Sick Boy
owayo - Sick Boy
such a sick boy
we're all sick boys
i'm a sick boy
naa naa naa naa naa naa

    You are way off :) This song isn't hard to understand, it's about those COOL guys you get, or guy in this song's case. switchblade knife, drinkin' all night, big motor bike, leather jacket, trouble with the law. A typical guy you see in lots of movies. Rad song still.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
