about

A song about how, from a certain perspective, everything is about sex.

lyrics

Freud was right, it's all about sex!
The secret lust of a Britain repressed
Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette
It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed

Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex
The silent cause of all human distress
People of the world wake up to your love
Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above

Shackles minds in this frustrated nation
Kept cruelly in check by sexual deprivation
So swallow Snuffy's Voodoo viagra pill
We're gonna cure your fear of the ultimate thrill

Are you feeling lonely?
Then take my hand and trust in Freud
And if you're feeling empty
Well, let's let pleasure fill the void

Freud was right, it's all about sex!
The secret lust of a Britain repressed
Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette
It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed

Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex
The silent cause of all human distress
People of the world wake up to your love
Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above

Open your mind to this brand new ideal
Perhaps there's nothing taboo about how good it feels
So never hold it back, your desire is sacred
And you pulled all your friends so let's all get naked

Come on now!

Free yourself from your Calvin Kleins
That chastity built is a lock on your mind
And your mouth's still talking when it should be sucking
And tell me why am I singing when I could be f**king

Are you feeling lonely?
Then take my hand and trust in Freud
And if you're feeling empty
Well, let's let pleasure fill the void

[seductive break]

Yeah! Check it out people... here comes Dr Spanky on the my oh my!

Freud was right, it's all about sex!
The secret lust of a Britain repressed
Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette
It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed

Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex
The silent cause of all human distress
People of the world wake up to your love
Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above

People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love

People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love

Yeah!
