The Lyrics

This song spoofs the conspiracy theories around the IMF boss Dominique Strauss Kahn(DSK) / Paris maid scandal
DSK he loved to play
At sex games and he used to pay
For French maids who would find him in the loo* yeah
It was after lunch at his hotel
When the maid she came and rang his bell
And DSK said come on in Tallulah

Oh Tallulah x 4

Some say it was a cunning stunt
To queer his pitch his pitch for president
The spooks sent up a real maid not a hooker
So when DSK though he had paid
For his usual hot post prandial maid
He said come on in babe I’m gonna screw* ya

Gonna screw ya x 4

So was it just a honey trap
And will he now escape the rap
And turn around and say to them I’ll sue ya
You tried to stitch me up so tight
But it didn’t work and I’m gonna fight
I’m gonna clear my name I’m gonna do ya

Gonna do ya x 4

Or maybe he just lost his head
A hot French maid and an unmade bed
He couldn’t help himself he lost his cool yeah
He raped her and he trashed her life
He trashed his own and he trashed his wife
You are stuffed if let your libido rule ya

Libido rule ya x 4

the word "loo" is an English slang equivalent for "john" The the word "screw" is English slang for f**k

The word "screw" is also American slang for "f..". Interesting take on this Leonard Cohen story, which, if I recall correctly, was about a wealthy, powerful man, who lusted after another man's wife, and thought he could get away with taking her.

that is a most succint interpretation of the Cohen lyric! Thanks for the comment!

Excellent stuff - and the last line (with a minor change to the word "stuffed") would make the perfect line for many a rich & powerful (and, come to think of it, not so rich & powerless) man.
