  • Listen to the girl
    As she takes on half the world
    Moving up and so alive
    In her honey dripping beehive
    It's good, so good, it's so good
    So good

    Walking back to you
    Is the hardest thing that
    I can do
    That I can do for you
    For you

    I'll be your plastic toy
    I'll be your plastic toy
    For you

    Eating up the scum
    Is the hardest thing for
    Me to do

    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey
    Just like honey Writer/s: James McLeish Reid, William Adam Reid

  • Ray Johnson from IndianaBig dummies, it's about COCAINE ADDICTION!
  • John Paul Baptiste from LondonI remember reading that it's about cunnilingus, but to be honest I don't know, brilliant song and band. I wish I could see them especially when Bobby Gillespie played the drums.
  • Paul from BostonThis song is about anal sex. Nuff said. That's the fact.
  • Bmn from Hisuan, ArgentinaFor me it is definitely all about some kind of sexual act. The reference to 'honey' is obviously representative of semen, 'moving up and so alive' describing oral sex, 'her honey dripping beehive'; obviously about male ejaculate on her hair. At first I thought it said 'behind', which might have led to the conclusion that the song was about female ejaculation. 'I'll be your plastic toy' is obviously a sex toy reference, anyone who denies that fact is avoiding the truth of the song. Furthermore 'eating up the scum' is either about male or female oral sex, though as the lyric is 'the hardest thing for ME to do' it probably refers to the male giving oral sex to a female.

    Its probably about female ejaculation. Just wanted to clear that up (no pun intended)
  • Chris from San Diego, CaThis was their biggest hit to date, reaching #45 on the UK charts.

    First heard this song in Lost in Translation, and it made the ending so perfect... love it
  • Chris from Willoughby , OhThis song is talking about oral sex on a girl. ("Moving up and so alive in her honey dripping beehive") They had a similar song called A Taste Of Cindy. Oh and Chinese Rocks is Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers, not Tom Petty. This site needs a fact checker.
