[why don't you open me up]
candy cane girl
don't you know your name girl
[yeah]
twelve people gonna ask you just the same girl
what a world
christmas once a year girl
that's three hundred and sixty four tears girl
so when christmas finally comes
and nobody's got a gun
and you think it might be fun
to hang around
think again girl
[why don't you open me up, huh?]
candy cane boy
don't you know your name boy
nine people gonna tell you just the same boy
you're a lone son?
in the middle of a million
and nobody knows how to talk to children
oh, when christmas finally comes
and nobody's got a gun
and you think it might be fun
to get a new toy
think again boy
[oh]
oh when christmas finally comes
and noone's got a gun
and you think it might be fun
to make a stand
think again man

    General Commentthe only part i understand is the first part of the verse when he says the stuff about the boy
    and i dont really understand that either

    --candy cane boy
    don't you know your name boy
    nine people gonna tell you just the same boy
    you're a lone son?
    in the middle of a million
    and nobody knows how to talk to children--

    jack is saying that the white stripes arent popular
    and then i guess the children part is their style of playing, as jack describes it
    how minimalistic and childish megs drumming is, it seems like shes a 4 year old little girl playing drums
    thats what i got out of it...
