Jefferson Airplane - “Bear Melt”
Old song, they don't make it like this anymore.
Listen to it a few times, let the lyricism sink in. Sink in it does, slowly. Then, mull over the lyrics. The war of the sexes.
There are always just a few pebbles In the middle of a stream When it's trying to be a flowing mother Oh she blows she blows Nobody knows Oh there she goes Nobody knows Then along comes a little tiny Animal nipping a Few drops out of her side Just a few drops from her side She can run She could stay But the days not right and so she's gonna move Let me tell you gonna move Let me tell you how I'm gonna move along Out away But ahhhh There's a man come along with a jacket on Long gun in his hand I said there was a man coming on With a red jacket on And a big long gun in his hand Got a sledge hammer All he needs is one head Just one sledge hammer baby and all All them animals is dead Yeah dead But why not keep the little animals alive? Why not? I say why not? And don't you worry 'bout being sentimental honey They're just an animal you want to keep alive Keep alive And give it to you what I have Give it to me Give to you yeah And give it to me Oh You know how good it feels when somebody gives it to you Yeah, it feels good when somebody gives it to you. Gives it to you right here. Tell me how it feels. When somebody gives it to you good. Oh you could listen To a thousand different reasons Why you can't go.
