Lyrics
I, I might have known by the smell
That you were back again
You probably dug up your well to be able to lend
I should’ve know by your smile that you had something planned
Another scheme in your pile for more spare change in your can

Hip, chick lady making me sad
Hip, slick lady making me mad
Slick and sly beneathe your friendly smile
Hip, chick lady taking all my marbles for a while

Yes, I know you tricked me before but I’m much older now
I’ll promptly show you the door, you’ll probably show me your plow
It’s just a game that we played but no longer will do
You’re just out to get laid, I’m just out to get through

Hip, chick lady making me sad
Hip, slick lady making me mad
Slick and sly beneathe your friendly smile
Hip, chick lady taking all my marbles for a while

I might have known by the smell that you were back again

Moldy Jody cramming it hard
Boldly folding until her every inch is badly scarred
Slick baby, holding me back
Hip, chick lady putting fingerprints upon my stack

I should have know by your smile that you had something planned

Listener Guide
Grade

Analysis: A moody song, rich with effects over a calmly strummed 12-string acoustic, the song suffers slightly from sound and tape issues as well as the ending guitar lead, which starts out strong but seems to run flat in the middle. Still, a good example of some of the experimental sounds of the summer of ’89.
