    O.K. I know I should probably know this but, who is Dave talking to and what is he talking about at the end of the song when he says "Look, I'll pay you for it, what the fuck."

    Maybe he's pretending to be talking to a stripper or a hooker, or just a girl. Tounge-in-cheek as usual for Dave. Something sexual I can assure you.

    Good question, I have no idea. Probably just an ad lib that sounded cool so it was left in.

    Hell 90% of the song sounds ad-libbed, so the end might be too.

    Back in '84 Dave and Alex did some interview on the radio for a nationally syndicated show, and Dave told the story on how the middle section happened. Apparantly he was supposed to have some clever lyrics written for the section when it came time to record the song. Per usual Dave was sidetracked, by who or what we don't know, and didn't have the lyrics ready. So he brought in a coupla of his girlfriends to sit in the producer booth behind the glass for inspiration. When the breakdown section came, Dave started his spiel with the ladies. The stockings, the high heels, etc. While the end of the song was not discussed in the radio interview, I've always thought it was Dave playing off the ladies roles as "escorts."

    What you guys are saying is what I thought all along but I wasn't sure. Thanks for the feedback though.
