Songfacts®:

  • She's so hot, look at her go
    This year's model at a motor show
    Just think what you could do when you get her home
    All revved up, but it's a no go

    'Cause you're not for sale...

    Anyone really think this is about a car? It's not necessarily about women, prostitution, or even sex; this is an all-girl band that instead of whining about the chimera of sexism got on with it and did their stuff.

    Running to 3 minutes 31 seconds, group composition "Not For Sale" is the second track on their debut album Demolition. >>
