Pixies - Hey

Hey
Been trying to meet you
Hey
Must be a devil between us
Or whores in my head
Whores at my door
Whores in my bed
But hey
Where
Have you
Been if you go i will surely die
We're chained
Uh said the man to the lady
Uh said the lady to the man she adored
And the whores like a choir
Go uh all night
And mary ain't you tired of this
Uh
Is
The
Sound
That the mother makes when the baby breaks
We're chained

One of the Pixies' most popular songs, “Hey” is referred to by Black Francis as the bands' “Only R&B song”. Black Francis told Esquire, "People love this song. It’s like our only R&B song with this three-chord turnaround. Basically it’s our slow-jam R&B song or our version of that I guess. I don’t think we were trying to do that. It just sort of came out naturally. I suppose it’s a relationship song. It’s not really my own history but distilled or culled from ancient stories of my parents from when they were younger. Things I heard or rumors, loosely based on that kinda stuff."
