  • Give me
    Your dirty love
    Like you might surrender
    To some dragon in your dreams
    Give me
    Your dirty love
    Like a pink donation
    To the dragon in your dreams

    I don't need your sweet devotion
    I don't want your cheap emotion
    Just whip me up some dragon lotion
    For your dirty love

    Give me
    Your dirty love
    Like some tacky little pamphlet
    In your daddy's bottom drawer
    Give me
    Your dirty love
    I don't believe you have ever seen
    That book before

    I don't need no consolation
    I don't want your reservation
    I only got one destination
    An' that's your dirty love

    Give me
    Your dirty love
    Just like your mama
    Make her fuzzy poodle do
    Give me
    Your dirty love
    The way your mama
    Make that nasty poodle chew

    I'll ignore your cheap aroma
    And your little-bo-peep diploma
    I'll just put you in a coma
    With some dirty love

    THE POODLE BITES!
    (Come on, Frenchie)
    THE POODLE CHEWS IT!
    (Snap it!)
    THE POODLE BITES!
    (Come on, Frenchie)
    THE POODLE CHEWS IT!

  • George from Vancouver, CanadaMildly bawdy; more cute than bawdy. . . a fine opening pickup line when tuning into women born in the '50s. .
  • George from Vancouver, CanadaWhat took me so long to discover this gem? Love it! Dirty love, like the pamphlet in her daddy's bottom drawer (not a magazine -- just a pamphlet -- that's pure RAW!!); I'm intrigued by the 'poodles' in this song. . .
  • Natu from Addis Ababa, EthiopiaAs long as Frank Zappa's awesome freakness and honest freedom of expression concern this song 'knock you off in to come with some dirty love..'
