Poor Pete is a bit self-conscious and he thinks that he's a vampire.
He gets into his off-white Saturn and heads into the suburbs.
He looks at himself in the mirror, like a girl putting makeup on.
He wants to buy a brand new pair of teeth, but the don't accept coupons.

Is this gonna be the night that his daily horoscope comes true?
He knows Venus is in retrograde, but not if the moon is new.

Poor Pete isn't fashion forward, but he likes to think he's ultra cool.
He winks at a girl named Siouxsie while she's playing bumper pool.
She looks at him rather blankly, before mouthing the words, "yeah, right."
She knows poor Pete's not the kind of guy who will ever get it right.

So this isn't gonna be the night that his daily horoscope comes true.
He knows Venus is in retrograde, but not if the moon is new.

So this isn't gonna be the night that his daily horoscope comes true.
He knows Venus is in retrograde, but not if the moon is new.

    General CommentVery cute song. It's pretty straight forward, and it doesn't really seem to have a deeper meaning, although it very well could.
