"Turning Japanese" is a colloquialism describing the facial contortions that sometimes occur during orgasm.

Regarding "Oops" the lyrics!

How exactly is "Summer Babe" about jerking it?

"Ice baby, I saw your girlfriend and she's eatin' her fingers like they're just another meal but she waits there in the levee wash mixing cocktails with her plastic-tipped cigar."

The Osborne Brothers - "Rocky Top"

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Friday, 21 March 2003 02:25 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

There was a man, a lonely man
who lost his love through his indifference
a heart that cared that went unshared
until it died within his silence

And solitaire's the only game in town
and every road that takes him takes him down
while life goes on around him everywhere
he's playing solitaire

And keeping to himself he plays the game
without her love, it always ends the same
and by himself it's easy to pretend
he'll never love again
A little hope goes up in smoke
just how it goes, goes without saying
There was a man, a lonely man
who would command the hand he's playing

Is everyone studiously avoiding mentioning Ivor Biggun's 1978 smash hit because it's just too bleedin' obvious?

Never noticed "Sleeping Late" by Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show until now, but it definitely fits:

Sometimes I'm embarrassed by devious thoughts
When I'm undercover let me never get caught
Crazy notions begin with that old devil grin on my face
We're such a disgrace, me and my pillow-case

Sleeping late, sleeping late
Sleeping late, sleeping late

The blissful state of sleeping late has been known to compensate
And sometimes even stimulate
I for one appreciate, sleeping late
Ain't it great sleeping late

I just had a revelation with Webb Pierce's "Walking the Dog":

I'm walking the dog and I'm never blue
I'm walking the dog, I ain't thinkin' 'bout you
I don't need no one to tie me down
I'm walking the dog and I'm paintin' the town
Such an easy life, I never knew until the day that I left you
Well I'm a carefree lad that's seen the light
I'm walking the dog all the day and all night

brilliant euphemism

Sondre Lerche - "Single-Hand Affairs"

Brilliant premise; - he and his girl meet up for a date, hit it off well, but don't hook up; they leave separately and go to their respective homes, where they both wank whilst thinking about each other...

I just noticed his new album is called Solo Pleasure, but it's not about ~that~.

Toni Braxton’s “Another Sad Love Song”.

Or it could really be about obsessive radio listening during car drives, like it says on the tin, in which case I’m terribly sorry (as is the insistent drum pattern).
