Lyrically peaking: A Bigger Bang

A Bigger Bang does go off with a bang > one of the Rolling Stones best studio albums, it was released in 2008.

There’s a polical bent to Sweet Neo Con, taking aim at American president George W. Bush > aka Bush the Dumber > at the time of the second Iraq war.

And Dangerous Beauty > I reckon it’s about Bush’s equally problematic Secretary of State at the time, Condoleezza Rice.

Rough Justice

One time you were my baby chicken

Now you’ve grown into a fox

And once upon a time I was your little rooster

Am I just one of your cocks?


So put your lips to my hips baby

And tell me what’s on your mind

I know you still got that animal attraction for me

It’s been a long, long time

Sweet Neo Con

You call yourself a Christian

I think that you’re a hypocrite

You say you are a patriot

I think that you’re a crock of shit


It’s liberty for all

‘Cause democracy’s our style

Unless you are against us

Then it’s prison without trial

Dangerous Beauty

You’re doing such a wonderful job

You’re a natural at working with dogs


In your high school photo

You looked so young and naive

Now I heard you got a nickname

The lady of the leash


Well you’re a dangerous, dangerous

A dangerous beauty

Yeah, disdainfully, painfully

A bit of booty, yeah

Oh No Not You Again

Here you stand before me

Waiting to be kissed

You’re a beauty, such a cutie

How could I resist


Oh no, not you again

Fucking up my life

It was bad the first time

I can’t stand it twice
