You and I
We fit together like a glove on hand, that's right
Don't you know that I would gladly take you anywhere you wanted to go?
You and me
We are as close as three-part harmony, wouldn't you agree?
And if by chance our romance ended it would surely be the end of me

Some people might say I'm infatuated (I don't care)
I don't care 'cause they really don't know
They'll never see or hear the things I do with you
So far as I'm concerned they all can go to

Well, alright, you squares, it's time you smoked
Fire up this funk and let's have a toke
It'll make you dance and some of everything
Everybody get high, sing

Bustin' out
Bustin' out

We're bustin' out of this L-Seven square
Freaks like you and I could never funk on there
We're bustin' out, everybody come along
We gon' dance on the funk and make love on the song

Sexy, sexy, sexy

Who do you
Girl, who do you belong to?
My point of view is
Girl, I think you're hot
If we talked
What words could I describe?
There's no dictionary book
To explain how you look

Girl, I think you're so
Sexy, sexy, sexy
Cold blooded
What more can I say?
Sexy, sexy, sexy
Cold blooded (freak)

Mary, I love you
Do it, baby

Doo doo doo doo
Mary Jane
Mary Jane

I'm in love with Mary Jane
She's my main thing
She makes me feel alright
She makes my heart sing
And when I'm feeling low
She comes as no surprise
Turns me on with her love
Takes me to paradise

Do you love me, Mary Jane?
Yeah, whoa-oh-oh
Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya? Do ya?
Now do you think you love me, Mary Jane
Don't you play no games (woo)

Doo doo doo doo
Mary Jane

When I came home last night
You wouldn't make love to me
You went fast to sleep
You wouldn't even talk to me
You said I'm so crazy
Coming home intoxicated
I said, "Just wanna love you"
I just wanna love you, baby
Guess that's why I'm so elated

C'mon girl, give it to me, baby (give it to me, baby)
Give it to me, baby (give it to me, baby)
I betcha I'll make you hot 'til you've had enough

Give it to me
Give me that stuff that funk, that sweet that funky stuff (say what)
Give it to me
Give me that stuff that funk that sweet that funky stuff (say what)
Give it to me, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me
Give me that stuff
That sweet, funky stuff
Yoh ho, ow ow ow

Girl, you're cute, you're sweet
You're such a sexy treat
You are the girl that turns me on
And when you're hot, you're hot
I love the stuff you've got
You are the kinky girl I write about in every song

Do do da do do da do do dah
Do do bop bop, baby
Do do dah do
Don't be so hard to get
Do do dah do do da do do dah
Do do bop bop, baby
Do do dah do
'Cause I will get you yet, hey

She's a very kinky girl
The kind you don't take home to mother
She will never let your spirits down
Once you get her off the street, oh girl

She likes the boys in the band
She says that I'm her all-time favorite
When I make my move to her room it's the right time
She's never hard to please, oh no

That girl is pretty wild now (the girl's a super freak)
The kind of girl you read about (in new-wave magazines)
That girl is pretty kinky (the girl's a super freak)
I'd really love to taste her (every time we meet)

She's all right, she's all right
That girl's all right with me, yeah
Hey, hey, hey, hey

She's a super freak, super freak

Blow Danny!

Oh girl
Oh girl

    This was his first big hit. I remember hearing this song on a rowdy touring bus. As soon as it came on we all got quiet and popped our fingers to it.

@Kahiara Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the (… ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
