Meaning of the song Not Allowed by TV Girl


This song features four samples by the late 1980s hip-hop group Yeastie Girlz, who drew inspiration from the Beastie Boys.


The aforementioned songs, which were all released in 1988, are: "You Suck," "FCC," "F*ck Yourself," and "Sue Your Friends."


Brad Petering, the lead vocalist, wrote the song "Not Allowed," which was produced by TV Girl as a whole.


Brad is frustrated that he cannot engage in sexual activity with the lady he finds attractive. He interprets her justifications for her refusal to go there as "excuses and lies."


Lyrics of the song Not Allowed by TV Girl


(Yeah you suck

We wanna talk about sex but we're not allowed

Well you may not like it but you better learn how 'cause it's your turn now

You're wasting your tongue with lame excuses and lies)

 

So how should I begin this?

I guess it started when you were with him

And how he never even took you out to dance

But did he fuck with any rhythm?

But now he's playing with your head

But did he ever make you cum?

Did he ever make you cry?

Do the wires in your mind get sewn together

Rubbed and severed by the heat

You don't know how long I could stare into your picture

And wish that it was me

I guess it's different cause you love him

But I've got an interactive

Sick and twisted imagination

And that's gotta count for something

 

(We wanna talk about sex but we're not allowed

Well you may not like it but you'd better learn how 'cause it's your turn now

You're wasting your tongue with lame excuses and lies

Get your face between my thighs)

 

I dreamt I was standing in your doorstep

Licking sweat off of your forehead

With your finger in my mouth

And the sound when leather jackets hit the ground

You should hear when you're not around

When it's just us horny poets

Who can't wait to write it down

And swear we were only being honest

Do you like these little sonnets

Cause I wrote them just for you

But how quickly they turn sour

So be careful who you screw

And never call

And I'm starting to suspect

You don't intend to do anything you say at all

 

(We wanna talk about sex but we're not allowed

Well you may not like it but you'd better learn how 'cause it's your turn now

You're wasting your tongue with lame excuses and lies)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)

 

(All by himself, sittin' alone

I hope we're still friends, yeah, I hope you don't mind)
