    Yep lyrically speaking songs could get you into trouble, the innosense of youth too I guess, I remember being quite naive, about more than just music, girls were a mystery to me also, maybe because they still are, and now I'm 43......

    I only twigged lately that Seven Drunken Nights was about marital infidelity, and I first heard the song when I was about 5 !

    Neither do The Vapors! I've never heard those lyrics in that song before. You must have a different, adult version than I've ever heard mate.

    I know it is slightly off topic, but I was shocked to learn how the Scissor Sisters got their name. Very rude!!!

    Hmm, there are lots of songs that you might either like the tune, or the singer, or both, but the words (if you can make them out) don't always reveal the true meaning. I can remember humming the tune to 'She Bop' by Cyndi Lauper, before finding out that it was a female variant of 'Turning Japanese'. Even Ian Dury & The Blockheads' 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick' back in 1979 seemed innocent enough to a youngster like me. It was obviously innocent enough for the BBC, because they didn't ban it.

    Ahh, the innocence of youth...
    Cheers
