She doesn't care whether or not he's an island
She doesn't care just as long as his ship's coming in

She doesn't care whether or not he's an island (oh no)
They laugh they make money
He's got a gold watch
She's got a silk dress and healthy breasts
That bounce on his Italian leather sofa

She doesn't care whether or not he's a good man
She doesn't care just as long as she still has her friends (oh no)

She doesn't care whether or not he's an island
They laugh, they make money
He's got a gold watch
She's got a silk dress and healthy breasts
That bounce on his Italian leather sofa

She's got a serrated edge
That she moves back and forth
It's such a simple machine she doesn't have to use force
When she gets what she wants
She puts the rest on a tray in a ziplock bag

She's got a serrated edge
That she moves back and forth
It's such a simple machine she doesn't have to use force
When she gets what she wants
She puts the rest on a tray in a ziplock bag
In the freezer

Oh no
She doesn't care whether or not he's an island (oh no)
She doesn't care just as long as his ship's coming in
(Alright, here it comes, here it comes)

She doesn't care whether or not he's an island (oh no)
They laugh, they make money
He's got a gold watch
She's got a silk dress and healthy breasts
That bounce on his Italian leather sofa

    Song MeaningI loved this for the poetry reference, actually.
    Pretty cut and dried - this is a picture of a trophy wife who is perfectly happy with exchanging sex for the status and money of being associated with a rich and powerful man. I find it amusing that this song doesn't actually feel very negative about them - both the man and the woman seem to be just fine with the arrangement - so why should we care?
    As for the serrated edge - let's be clear, a serrated edge has teeth. It's the type you'd find on a bread knife, and it works pretty much the way they describe it in the song. (As such, it would be completely useless for cocaine and also would bear little resemblance to any part of female anatomy or masturbatory device.) As "she's got" this serrated edge, I'm confident that it means her methods of manipulating the relationship so that she gets exactly what she wants out of it. But that's ok - the chorus implies that the man gets exactly what he wants out of it, as well. :)
