Man Is It Sweaty!

Per usual, I thought it would be funny to defy the obvious and make this song about literally being hot and sweaty, and the consequences that could have on a relationship. I also thought comparing a beautiful woman’s mouth to that of a racehorse would be really funny, especially since Girth is effectively describing his future wife in this song. Lastly, one of my friends listened to this and announced, to my surprise and annoyance, that I’d kinda ripped off the melody from “Downtown.” Oops!
