Explanation

A very straightforward lyric, but a couple of hidden references one might not (automatically) know.


Monday child(‘s) face. People born on a Monday will supposedly be very attractive. From a nursery rhyme called “Monday’s Child” meant to help children remember the days of the week (and predict a child’s future). The modern version of which commonly reads: Monday’s child is fair of face, Tuesday’s child is full of grace, Wednesday’s child is full of woe, Thursday’s child has far to go, Friday’s child is loving and giving, Saturday’s child works hard for a living, And the child that is born on the Sabbath day, Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

leaves on her high-heels, leaves on the lace. This line is constructed from a couple of stolen lines from Bon Scott’s “Walk All Over You”. “Take off the high heels let down your hair” and “Leave on the lace and turn off the light”

She’s got her name tattooed on ten score men. A score, amongst many definitions, is twenty. So ten score is 200 lovers.
I’m holdin’ what she needs, she’s drippin’ lust. I’m holding my penis while she is, literally, dripping wet with lust.

A good-time girl. This is a quaint expression (for a woman who “gets around”) my granny occasionally used.
Skin-flick-deep. A combination of skin-flick (a pornographic movie) and skin-deep (a very shallow personality).
“Baby, baby let’s rock ‘n’ roll!”. Rock ‘n’ roll also being, since the genre of music, an accepted pseudonym for sex.

I gotta bad case of Eye-Candy-Crush. A combination of eye-candy (pretty female) and candy-crush (addictive game) and crush (attraction).
