Italian Leather Sofa Lyrics

She doesn’t care Whether or not he’s an island. She doesn’t care, Just as long as his ship’s coming in. She doesn’t care Whether or not he’s an island. If they laugh, they make money. He’s got a gold watch. She’s got a silk dress And healthy breasts That bounce on his Italian leather sofa. She doesn’t care Whether or not he’s a good man. She doesn’t care, Just as long as she still has her friends. She doesn’t care Whether or not he’s an island. If they laugh, they make money. He’s got a gold watch. She’s got a silk dress And healthy breasts That bounce on his Italian leather sofa. She’s got a serrated edge That she moves back and forth. It’s such a simple machine. She doesn’t have to use force. When she gets what she wants She puts the rest on a tray In a zip-loc bag. She’s got a serrated edge That she moves back and forth. It’s such a simple machine. She doesn’t have to use force. When she get what she wants She puts the rest on a tray In a zip-loc bag in the freezer. She doesn’t care Whether or not he’s an island. She doesn’t care, Just as long as his ship’s coming in. She doesn’t care Whether or not he’s an island. If they laugh, they make money. He’s got a gold watch. She’s got a silk dress And healthy breasts That bounce on his Italian leather sofa.

Italian Leather Sofa Lyrics

I was a Cake fan at twelve. It was “The Distance” that roped me in. It was loud and intense and vaguely funny—it reminded me of “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys. The whole album, Fashion Nugget, was wry like that—moody and scornful country rock with lyrics that ranged from playful (“I won’t be soothed over like smoothed over like milk”) to straightforward (“Shut the fuck up,” the title track repeats) to intimate (an extended bridge in “Italian Leather Sofa” about a golddigging housewife cutting some untold late-night snack with a serrated edge, then putting what she doesn’t want in a ziplock freezer bag—I didn’t know what serrated meant until this song.)

Italian Leather Sofa Lyrics

I never saw the whole serrated edge thing as having anything to do with emasculation – I thought that she was taking what she wanted (money), cutting out the rest of her life (wanting a guy who isn’t an island, who’s a good man, etc.) and putting it in the freezer. She does what he wants, doesn’t she – she looks nice and bounces on the Italian leather sofa. She gets money out of it and puts the rest of her life in a ziplock bag.

Italian Leather Sofa Lyrics

I always got the impression that it’s about a gold-digger dismembering the corpse of her lover. Lyrics are here. It seems like there should be some deeper meaning behind “Short Skirt/Long Jacket,” too, but damned if I can figure it out.

My friend keeps telling me its about her boyfriends mom. But I’m always skeptical about stuff like that. Though the mom does live in Sacramento and could have ties with them. Anyone?

Italian Leather Sofa Lyrics

I didn’t mind. I got pulled in by the talk-shout like everybody else. Their little-heard but very good first album, Motorcade of Generosity, features two talk-shout songs, one of which, “Mr. Mastodon Farm,” is about a man who must obsessively watch swooping mastodons to make sure they fly off before smacking into the ground “like small loaves of bread.” The lyrics are exciting for how little Cake is interested in helping the listener know what to make of them. “Heyyy-ooo,” go the backing vocals, and as the song fades out, McCrae allows a little meta-commentary, “And the band gets quieter, and the people get louder.” It’s an unassuming climax to a low-key record that is, like all the others, mostly full of sung songs. Motorcade is almost as good as its successor, lower on atmosphere but as high on song craft.

“I would listen to the theme once or twice, then improvise the lyrics as weirdly and vaguely as possible,” Davis told the Daily Dot. “I wanted to sound like I’ve never watched the show before and confuse people.”
