Hey

Don't touch kid, sleep with the lights on
Touch kid, how you surprise me
Now roll kid, rock your body off

You're something like a phenomena
Something like an astronomer
Roll kid, rock your body off

Something like a phenomena, baby
You're something like a phenomena
Something like a phenomena, baby
You're gonna get your body off

Don't fall asleep with the motor running
She'll make you sweat in the water
Don't fall asleep with the motor running
She'll make you sweat in the water

Hot time kid, hot time kid
It's cold under the blanket
They loved it, then shot it
The fastest ran and got it
That story that ease my
They hide it up the sleeves, my
They hide it, they hide it
They're never gonna find it

Don't fall asleep with the motor running
She'll make you sweat in the water
Don't fall asleep with the motor running
She'll make you sweat in the water

Something like a phenomena, baby
You're something like a phenomena
Something like a phenomena, baby
You're gonna get your body off
Something like a phenomena, baby
You're something like a phenomena
Something like a phenomena, baby
You're gonna get your body off

Hot time kid, hot time kid
It's cold under the blanket
Hot time kid, hot time kid
It's cold under the blanket

    I can't believe nobody bothered to mention to them that "phenomena" is the plural of "phenomenon", and that you can't have "a phenomena". that really bugs me.

    This song is great. My username is from it. This album is great. At first I thought it was kind of lukewarm after the sex of Fever To Tell, but I know like it actually about the same. It's amazing.

    I feel this song is about sex and passion. It's about feeling you need to hide that from people, but at the same time embracing it at all times. It could be about drugs too. I personally just think the three of them are geniuses. Karen is the shiz, her voice reaches phenomenal proportions in this song. Nick can play the guitar like NO OTHER. Brian's drum skills literally make me want to rip my clothes off.

    This song is teh sex.

    I'm pretty sure they say "a phenomena" because they are referencing the line from White Lines by Grandmaster Flash..

    I agree with all who say this song is hot! & very much about sex. The hiding could refer to hiding drugs, yes, or simply to hiding arousal and the signs thereof. Or possibly to both. As to the Latinate plural problem, I agree that this is probably intentional, but this bothers my overbrain a little each time I hear it. Song ain't about the frontal cortex though.

    I think the "don't fall asleep with the Mormon" idea is hilarious, and awesome. For my part for the longest time I've thought it was "don't fall asleep with the mermaid/she'll make you sweat in the water." But I dunno if that's right

    I believe that whe she says, "Don't fall asleep with the motor on" she is saying don't fall asleep when you are..horny. And "She'll make you sweat in the water" might man that "She" will make you hot and wake up even when you are supposed to be not turned on. Maybe. That's what I think.

    I just keep thinking of the song "Phenomenon" by LL Cool J!

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
