"H.W.C." as written by and Phair....
Give it to me, don't give it away
Don't think about what the others say
My skin's getting clear, my hair's so bright
All you do is fuck me every day and night

You're my secret beauty routine
Na na na na, what my body has seen
I am lookin' good and I'm feelin' nice
Baby, you're the best magazine advice

Gimme your hot white come [Repeat: x4]

I'm gonna pull you back down between the sheets
Everything is fresher when the day is sweet
In the morning light when you're already on the phone

Face it, one of these days
Without you I'm just another Dorian Gray
It's the fountain of youth, it's the meaning of life
So hot, so sweet, so whet my appetite


Face it, one of these days
Without you I'm just another Dorian Gray
It's the fountain of youth, it's the meaning of life
Baby, you're the best magazine advice

[Chorus: x2]

Your hot white come

    General CommentI truly believe in sex-positive music. I really enjoy "Flower," so I'm clearly not a hater -- don't stone me! This song is just so...stupid. I'm usually better at coming up with adjectives, but no other word comes to mind. I'm not a Phair fan by any means...I own a few of her songs, some from her "Guyville" debut and some more recent. Maybe she was trying to bring back the sexual, amusing magic of "Flower." I just don't know. I guess she sounds desperate here? Maybe that irks me. In "Flower," she didn't, and the arrangement was really pretty, too. I don't know if she was going for shock value here. Shit, it's just straight-up awful.

    General CommentThis is probably the catchiest Liz Phair song ever, which is unforunate, because you can't really sing it aloud in public!

    General CommentThe Dorian Gray reference is to the character of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde in The Picture of Dorian Gray. In the novel, Gray's portrait ages, while Gray himself appears to remain perpetually youthful.

    She is singing to an unknown male and the words "So hot, so sweet, so whet my appetite" clearly refers to the singer's desire for "hot white come". It is believed by some cultures that semen has beneficial qualities when applied to the skin. Also, there was a study done in 2002 at the State University of New York in Albany aruging that hormones in semen may help to ease female depression - the lyrics "I am lookin' good and I'm feelin' nice" may highlight post-orgasmic happiness.

    General CommentC'mon, Urban Cannibal, lighten up.

    I'm about as asexual as they get, but this is just plain fun and joyous and a gigantic flip of the bird to the powers that prevented her from spelling the title out properly.

    General Commentso artslut: what exactly makes her a slut? That sings a song about having sex with a younger man? If you were a guy singing about sex with a younger woman... you would pretty much any rock musician from Robert Plant to Elvis. If you are a female and sing about same thing you're a slut? Idiotic double standard.
