The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 21

Tonight's choice is a Cramps song with a huge dollop of rockabilly, over which Lux Interior meditates on women, the bible and badness.

'Adam and Eve, sitting in the woods
Eve said man I got something real good
It's in that tree, you'll get smart fast
Adam said sure, Satan my ass
I don't see no snakes but all women are bad

Samson and Delilah, talking 'bout grooming
Delilah said Sam you don't look human
Took some scissors, went snip, snip
Said now everybody's gonna think you're hip
Sam felt his head, said all women are bad'

On top of that, in the chorus Lux tells us

'All women are bad
All women are bad
They got groovy wiggly tails
They got horns on their heads
All women are bad'

And on it goes. Given that Poison Ivy co-wrote the song, played guitar on it, produced it and managed the band, I think we can assume Lux's tongue was firmly in his cheek. Anyway, it's got that necessary Friday night rockabilly stomp, so get it clicked, turn it up and turn it loose.
