your body is a wonderland

We got the afternoon
You got this room for two
One thing I've left to do
Discover me
Discovering you

One mile to every inch of
Your skin like porcelain
One pair of candy lips and
Your bubblegum tongue

And if you want love
We'll make it
Swimming a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be a while

Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland

Something 'bout the way your hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go and
Though I might leave to find it
I'll never let your head hit the bed
Without my hand behind it

you want love?
We'll make it
Swimming a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be a while

Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland

Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you're mine all mine all mine
But you look so good it hurts sometimes

Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonderland


That is the funniest lyric ever. I haven't heard the track as I guess it hasn't crossed over to the UK. But that is a real giggle especially if it's serious.

btw, does that mean his hand betwen her head and the headboard? Ahh that's nice...

And she booked the room too? That's love....

I think this is a protest song about the absence, outside Japan, of love hotels. Being forced to rent a hotel all night for a sexual encounter lasting two hours is just a rip off. What's more, in a love hotel the whole room would be a wonderland, a mini theme park. Love hotels everywhere, now!

Count me in with the folks who find it cute in a gawky sort of way.

And I'm curious about the need of many on this thread to police the desires of girls and young women.

momus we totally have hotels that rent rooms by the hour in the us

Because once you get a good look at my giant head and teeth, your going to cringe.

I just don't like mawkish and overt declarations of affection. I'm a sour old hag who's probably bitter I don't have my own Mayer to describe my body as a theme park ride. Yeah, that's the ticket...

Ick. And the sound of his voice actually singing it, makes it creepier. He sounds like a muppet.

But Dan what W.W. Joeie Do if you sang "your BOOTY is a wonderland?"

Tracer Hand (tracerhand), Monday, 17 November 2003 17:29 (twenty years ago) link

She would probably eviscerate me. Or she'd roll her eyes and ignore me. It's kind of a toss-up.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Monday, 17 November 2003 17:33 (twenty years ago) link

I like those odds!! Oh you said "eviscerate."

Damn, you mean I was totally wasting my money when I used to take girls to the Chelsea at $200 a pop?

But do your 'rest' hotels have automated desk clerks, jacuzzis, karaoke machines, vibromassage, and rotating teacup seats?

Momus (Momus), Monday, 17 November 2003 18:17 (twenty years ago) link

Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you're mine all mine all mine
But you look so good it hurts sometimes

I never noticed this line before. He says "Damn baby"!

"But do your 'rest' hotels have automated desk clerks, jacuzzis, karaoke machines, vibromassage, and rotating teacup seats?"

No but some of the classier ones have carpets and electrical lights.

Keith Harris (kharris1128), Monday, 17 November 2003 18:26 (twenty years ago) link

This song just makes me uncomfortable. Doesn't it creep anyone else out?

Elyn (elynbeth), Monday, 17 November 2003 18:30 (twenty years ago) link

Yes, it creeps me out, too. It's like women never fart or have stray hairs or boogers hanging out of their nose or something.

Kerry (dymaxia), Monday, 17 November 2003 23:09 (twenty years ago) link

His Xmas CD will include "Your Body Is a Winter Wonderland" of course.

this still cracks me up which goes a long way toward explaining my place in the world

I'm sorry, I've got to hear this. Kazaa, i'm comin ......

You could probably just guess how it goes, tho

The answer is in Eisbaer's handle.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 5 August 2009 15:15 (fourteen years ago) link

"lol" as frivolity (Stevie D), Wednesday, 5 August 2009 15:21 (fourteen years ago) link
