"Metal Mickey" was written by Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson....
Well, she's show-showing it off, then
The glitter in her lovely eyes
Show-show-showing it off, then
And all the people shake their money in time

She sells heart
She sells meat
Oh dad, she's driving me mad, come see

We shake, shake, shake to the trumpet
And through the slippery city, we ride
Skyline swine on the circuit
Where all the people shake their money in time

She sells heart
She sells meat
Oh dad, she's driving me mad, come see

She sells heart
She sells meat
Oh dad, she's driving me mad, come see

She sells heart
She sells meat
She sells heart
She sells meat

She sells heart
(She's driving me mad)
She sells meat
(She's driving me mad)
She sells heart
(She's driving me mad)
She sells meat
(She's driving me mad)
She sells heart
(She's driving me mad)
She sells meat
(She's driving me mad)
She sells heart
(She's driving me mad)
She sells meat
(She's driving me mad)

    General CommentIn the live version, they end the song with Brett howling "Oh ho ho"'s in the end. I wish that they had done that in the studio version as well.

    Btw, thanks for mentioning Katie Jane Garside and Daisy Chainsaw, they sound interesting.

    General CommentHas to be one of the finest pop songs. The guitar noise are very fine and subtle and melodic.
