Big Ten Inch Record

Album: Toys In The Attic (1975)
  • Got me the strangest woman
    Believe me this trick's no cinch
    But I really get her going
    When I whip out my big ten inch

    Record of a band that plays the blues
    Well a band that plays its blues
    She just love my big ten inch
    Record of her favorite blues

    Last night I tried to tease her
    I gave my love a little pinch
    She said now stop that jivin'
    Now whip out your big ten inch

    Record of a band that plays those blues
    Well a band that plays the blues
    She just loves my big ten inch
    Record of her favorite blues

    I, I, I cover her with kisses
    And when we're in a lover's clinch
    She gets all excited
    When she begs for my big ten inch

    Record of a band that plays those blues
    Well a band that plays the blues
    She just love my big ten inch
    Record of her favorite blues

    My girl don't go for smokin'
    And liquor just make her flinch
    Seems she don't go for nothin'
    'Cept for my big ten inch

    Record of a band that plays the blues
    Band that play the blues
    She just love my big ten inch
    Record of her favorite blues Writer/s: FRED WEISMANTEL

  • Malcolm Macdownhall from Illinois Sorry everybody, always sounded like she 's STUCK on his big ten inch to me. Verbally works better for both intentions.
  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenIf you give her 10 inches, she'll take a mile.
  • Paulo from Yonkers, NyYeah, it's "'Cept for"; though perhaps cleverly made to sound ambiguous.
  • James from Sacramento, CaIf you listen very carefully to the controversial line, you can obviously hear Steven Tyler sing the word "for" and not "on". This essentially kills all perception of the line actually saying "suck on my" since the line "suck for my" makes no sense at all in any context. Granted, the word 'cept and suck sound amazingly alike, especially in song, but you should really listen to the surrounding words to determine the actual lyrics. There is no mistaking that Tyler says the word "for" in the line. Don't believe me? Listen for yourself. The evidence is irrefutable.
  • Peter from Boston, MaWith regard to all these comments. Aerosmith and Steven Tyler and company are talented musicians. However, Big Ten Inch Record, is a cover of the same soby Bull Moose Jackson first sung in the 1940's and the lyric is CEPT for my big... and it does not refer to a knife lol.
  • Richard from Leckrone, PaActually Steven Tyler did say in an interview that the line is "cept on my big ten inch" but then quoted "but no one believes me"
  • Annie from Lombard, IlIt's "'cept for my big 10 inch". it said so in the school chorus songbook
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxBill and Monica must have played this one a lot.
  • Carlos from New York, NyIf you listen closely, Tyler DOES say SUCK on my big ten inch, NOT 'CEPT for my big ten inch, which is what you commonly see in the lyrics posted on the internet. The cleaner lyrics were originally used in Aerosmith lyric books sold in music stores going all the way to the 70s (for obvious reasons). But that doesn't mean those are the lyrics in the recorded version. Go back and listen. There's no question about it.
  • Homer from Springfield, KyThanks, Coen, for clearing that up. Great blues song along with Walkin' the Dog. Two perfect Blues covers right there.
  • Craig Lee from Valdosta, GaFantastic classic blues cover! Both clever and fun. By the way, the album "Toys in the Attic" is a must have for Aerosmith fans. Far better that anything they've released in two decades.
  • Liz from North Idaho, Idthis sort of reminds me of that country song "Don't touch my willie". Same idea. "don't touch my willie" refers to him telling the girl not to touch his Willie Nelson albums.
  • Michelle from Bristol , PaThe line is NOT "suck on my big ten inch record" It is CEPT for my big ten inch record. Some people need to get there words correct before making statements
  • Coen from Apeldoorn, NetherlandsI never heard the Aeorsmith version. I only know the 1952 song, and it is quite clear that this is a joke, a humourous sexual innuendo.
    In all the verses, the singer seems to refer to the size of his penis, but when the chorus starts, it turns out he was talking about a record.
    If you get the joke, the song makes sense. If you don't get the joke, it does not make sense. Why refer to the size of the record, and not to the music on the record? It only makes sense if you get the innuendo.
    I was surprised that this kind of fun was allowed in 1952. Apperantly, 1952 was not so conservative as we often think it was.
  • Harry from Nyc, NyStevn Tyler heard the original on The Dr Demento Show
  • Pat from Albuquerque, NmBertrand: Strictly speaking, most older 78s (aka big 10 inch) records are made with shellac. Vinyl came along later.
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkMy husband didn't believe that this song existed let alone got air-play. So I dedicated it to him on a local radio station's "Drive at Five". Sure made the commute better.
  • Mr Mcgoo from Anywhere, United StatesAre you people that dumb? Obvious it has a sexual meaning, but the lyrics do say "whip out your big ten inch RECORD!
  • Ozzi from Brookhaven, PaThis is an awesome blues tune from Aerosmith. What I love about Aerosmith that a lot of other Classic Rock bands don't have is the horns they have in their songs. They have the horns in a lot of awesome songs for example 'the Other Side' and this tune. At the end of each verse he ends with 'big ten-inch' and then the first word in the next verse is 'record' so he saves himself everytime.
  • J from Jackson, GaMy friend says that the line "suck on my big ten inch" is reffering to him. (yeah right)
  • Martin from Tucson, AzThe Big Ten Inch in which Tyler is referring to is actually a ten-inch knife that was customed made for him by a knife smith in New Hampshire. However, of course, with the obvious double entendres of the ten-inch record itself and the phallic nature of the line, who could resist that line of thinking.
  • Larry from Knoxville, TnThe line "Suck on my big ten inch" has a double meaning. If that is even the correct line
  • Joshua from Twin Cities, MnI'm afraid Bertrand misheard that line. The correct lyric is "...[She] don't go for nothin'/'Cept for my big ten-inch/Record..." Now, given the way Steven Tyler delivers this line, the mishearing is understandable, except that it doesn't make sense in context (why would anyone want to suck on a phonograph record?)
