    I used to love that song, but I  just listened to it again and it's majorly creepy now.

    This one might not really count because to me, it’s always sounded creepy from the very first time I heard it.  I’ve never understood how or why others think it’s a good idea for a song’s premise or title or lyrics. I think it’s a shame because I love so many other songs of his. 

    “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” Billy Ocean, 1988.

    I call it “The Child Molesters’ Song”.  Grrrrrrr

    :(

    “It’s No Fun Being An Illegal Alien” Genesis, 1984. 


    (Although truth be told, I’m not sure how popular it ever was.)



    LYRICS

    Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
    With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
    The sun is shining so I head for the park,
    With a bottle of Tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes
    I got a cousin and she got a friend,
    Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
    At his apartment I knocked on the door,
    He wouldn't come out until he got paid.
    Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do
    If they find out you know that they'll never let me through.
    It's no fun being an illegal alien
    It's no fun being an illegal alien
    Down at the office had to fill out the forms
    A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose,
    Up to the counter to see what they think
    They said 'It doesn't count man, it ain't written in ink'.
    Don't trust anybody least not around here, cause
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    It's not fun being an illegal alien,
    An illegal alien, O.K.
    Consideration for your fellow man
    Wouldn't hurt anybody, sure fits in with my plan
    Over the border, there lies the promised land
    So don't tell anybody what I wanna do
    If they find out you know that they'll never let me through.
    It's no fun being an illegal alien,
    It's no fun being an illegal alien,
    It's no fun being an illegal alien,
    It's no fun being an illegal alien.

    Oh what beautiful lyrics including the whole song. I'm glad you saw Hall n'Oates and their whole entourage.
    She'll only come out at night
    The lean and hungry type
    Nothing is new, I've seen her here before
    Watching and waiting
    Ooh, she's sitting with you but her eyes are on the door
    So many have paid to see
    What you think you're getting for free
    The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar
    Money's the matter
    If you're in it for love
    You ain't gonna get too far
    Watch out boy she'll chew you up
    (Oh here she comes)
    She's a maneater
    (Oh here she comes)
    Watch out boy she'll chew you up
    (Oh here she comes)
    She's a maneater
    I wouldn't if I were you
    I know what she can do
    She's deadly man, she could really rip your world apart
    Mind over matter
    Ooh, the beauty is there but The Beast is in her heart.
