    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs. i like to listen to it lound enough to make my ears bleed while i am on long car rides. i like the subtle dirty content. it is raunchy but it still sounds sweet and bouncy.

    General CommentI'm not so sure that this song is about that, though...although CPD is sometimes known for humorously raunchy songs, it doesn't fit in with the theme of the album it's on ('Kids on the Street', I mean).

    The first part, maybe, but the second part seems a bit too out there to refer to genitalia.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about sex with the devil. Obviously, it starts off with penis references.

    "Here comes the snake and he circles your leg He's come to play and make your body parts shake."

    "It'll feel so good when he gives it his all"

    But, as Skibz pointed out, it's a little out there ot just be about this guy's manhoood. Here's where the devil comes into play...

    "He's like a jail and you need an escape.
    Want you to come get a file in your cake."

    God and all his rules, like jail. The devil doesn't have those rules, he can break you free. He wants you on his side. He'll sex you to show you how much more fun his side would be, the file in the cake, also the "file" is a phallic reference to the feminine "cake".

    "I know he did you wrong and I'm here to give ya what you wanted all along."

    Let's face it. God let's you down. He's this great guy, that's there for you....but why do you feel so all alone, why so much strife? That doesn't sound like the good guy....but the devil, that trickster, is all about relieving you with sin, fufilling the urges that drive you. To give what you wanted all along, is freedom and ecstacy in the form of instant gratification, implying you don't need to wait for heaven to feel good. He'll make you feel good right NOW.

    "Yes, I believe but I'd rather not pray
    What I believe in I'd rather not say baby"

    There is belief, but the "praying" is either unecessary because the devil doesn't care baout being prayed to, he just wants stuff done. Or perhaps praying open to the devil only leads to trouble. He's also baiting you with mystery. "I'd rather not say....." Because any person is tempted to investigate after such a gauntlet is thrown.

    "Did your God show you the door
    Well, I'm here to eat your apple to the core
    Here comes the snake "

    Again, a reference that the good guy left you holding the bag while he was doing something more valiant that using his omnipotence to save you. Not now, Daddy's busy. Right? A lapse in faith occurs, and here comes the snake, as the devil appeared to Eve and tempted her with the apple, which was eventually....eaten to the core. He made it inside you, both physically and spiritually. But, how you feel about that is up to you....

    P.S. I'm not on either side, this is just how I see the song. Very cool.

    General CommentI don't think there are as many religious references in this song as PandorasRemorse thinks.

    General CommentPandorasRemorse: Could be possible, especially because a snake is a classical symbol of evil.

    To me, this song is about a guy seducing a girl who had unsatistfying/bad experiences with sex. Now he's gonna show her how hot and good sex can be.

    General CommentIt's about sex, pure and simple. Seduction, temptation. Chick had a bad experience, but he'll make it better by eating her "apple". :D
