I woke up this morning with a bad hangover
And my penis was missing again.
This happens all the time.
It's detachable.

[Background singing begins: "detachable penis" over and over]

This comes in handy a lot of the time.
I can leave it home, when I think it's gonna get me in trouble,
Or I can rent it out, when I don't need it.
But now and then I go to a party, get drunk,

And the next morning I can't for the life of me
Remember what I did with it.
First I looked around my apartment, and I couldn't find it.
So I called up the place where the party was,

They hadn't seen it either.
I asked them to check the medicine cabinet
'Cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes
But not this time.

So I told them if it pops up to let me know.
I called a few people who were at the party,
But they were no help either.
I was starting to get desperate.

I really don't like being without my penis for too long.
It makes me feel like less of a man,
And I really hate having to sit down every time I take a leak.
After a few hours of searching the house,

And calling everyone I could think of,
I was starting to get very depressed,
So I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast.
Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place,

Where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street,
I saw my penis lying on a blanket
Next to a broken toaster oven.
Some guy was selling it.

I had to buy it off him.
He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen.
I took it home, washed it off,
And put it back on. I was happy again. Complete.

People sometimes tell me I should get it permanently attached,
But I don't know.
Even though sometimes it's a pain in the ass,
I like having a detachable penis.

[Background voices continue to sing "detachable penis"]

    General CommentThe song is about mobile phones. It was written in 1992 when mobile phones weren't as common as they are now, and people who had them were thought of as - "wankers" hence the term detachable penis. Clever none the less

    General CommentThe interpretation about the girlfriend fits in some places, but why would loosing your girlfriend mean sitting down to piss? Also, a penis is about the most masculine thing you can get, so why compare it to a girl.

    I love this song... and it has a vein of truth to it. All penises are detachable... just not so easily re-atachable.

    General Commenti think that's the entire point of this song. to be stupid. i think it's really funny actually. i like the constant "detachable penis" chorus in the background.

    General Commentyou know, listening to a bunch of his other songs, i really can't see that as being the 'real meaning' behind this one. it's just a bit of fun; over-analyzation always kills things.
