"Moving" as written by Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson....
Shame on me
Well I had the beast, you see
And if he can take it
I can take him home with me

Shame on her
She's a lovely little number
And when we go lassoing
You get lassoed, all of you
If you can take it
I can take it

We're moving
So moving
So we are a boy
We are a girl
So moving
So moving

Oh, shame on the girl
She's got a big black dog in her
And while tough kids sing about tough kids
She just skins the world

We'll never never play the harp
And we'll stick like sick on the stars
And if you can take it
I can take these stones from my heart
If you can take it
I can take it

We're moving
So moving
So we are a boy
We are a girl
So moving
So moving

If you can take it, I can take it, all of me
If you can take it, I can take it all
If you can take it, I can take it, all of me
If you can take it, I can take it all

    General CommentMoving - I think it's a piss take of the cheesier pop hits around at the time... It's easy to get on the radio if you "Moving.... Sooo Moving" and the "Tough kids sing about tough kids" - Cock rock bullshit that Suede were a big reaction to. "Oh we are a boy, we are a girl" Suede always blurred that line in their early songs, while everyone else it seemed was getting either blokeier or girlier to the point of self-parody.

    It's almost the Suede blue-print.

    General CommentNo-one's commented?! This song is amazing!
    But anyway, I think this is similar to Electricity, about the truth and innocence of casual bisex and 'sexuality; big black dog is a ref. to Animal Nitrate (video), so despite bad experience (or because of it) she ignores surface pretensions - tough kids - and skins them all: looks beneath the surface and/or gives them her skin, so to speak. And 'she' could mean female or male. I think thats the idea, anyway.
