He swollerd' a frog
and hollered' yum yum
he slid down the hilside
and darted his toung
he intered the garden
on this bright moonlight night
and he stopped in his tracks
it was love at first sight

he said my skin is black
and your skin is green
you dwell in a garden
i live by a streem
although im short and stalky
and your long and green
I've got a crush on you
and he squeezed her tighter
and tighter and tighter
I've hot a crush on you

he said I'm a king snake
and you'll be my queen
with a butler and surphents
and your own private strem
and if you refuse me
it would be such a shame
cuz' I'm so tired of doing
my own thing

and he squeezed her tighter
to delight her and excite her
I've got a crush on you

and I'll be back tommorrow

next day when he got there
a two legged man was holding
sweet green thing in his
big human hands
a long jet of water
shot out of her nose
old king snake had fallen
in love with a hose

He said my skin is black
and your skin is green
you dwell in a garden
i live by a stream
although your made
of plastic i think
your fantastic
I've got a crush on you

but I don't think it's
gonna work out.

    I heart Billy. He SO needs to make a comeback. This song is about a black king snake that falls in love with a water hose. The king snake thought the water hose was a girl green snake, obviously it wasn't. Listen to the lyrics closely and you'll understand.

    Hilarious song! My favorite lines are "old king snake had fallen in love with a hose" and "I don't think it's gonna to work out." Obviously about a male snake that falls for a female snake, but later she leaves him for a garden hose. "...and he squeezed her tighter to delight her and excite her. I've got a crush on you." HILARIOUS!

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
