About Twist My Arm

"Twist My Arm" is the third single from The Tragically Hip's second full-length studio album, Road Apples. The single's B-side is a live version of the song "Highway Girl" from the band's debut EP, in which Gord Downie tells the story of a suicide pact between a man and his girlfriend. It was a hit on Canadian radio, allowing the song to chart considerably higher than in its original form, and contains some lines which would later recur as lyrics in the band's 1992 single "Locked in the Trunk of a Car".

There she blows, Jacques Cousteau
Hear her sing so sweet and low
Lull me overboard, out cold
Gathered in and swallowed whole

Yeah do I want to, with all that charm?
Do I want to? Twist my arm
Yeah do I want to, with all that charm?
Do I want to? Twist my arm

You just hit me where I live
I guess it looked quite primitive
What was that supposed to prove?
Throw the calf or he'll throw you

Do I want to, with all that charm?
Do I want to? Twist my arm
Yeah do I want to, with all that charm?
Do I want to? Twist my arm

Sucked in by the victim world
Thirsty as a cultured pearl
Culled and wooed, bitten, chewed
It won't hurt if you don't move

Do I want to, with all that charm?
Do I want to? Twist my arm
Yeah do I want to, with all that charm?
Do I want to? Twist my arm

Yeah musical chairs, double dares, memorized stairs
Shootin' off flares, springtime hares, broken-down mares

Yeah coward phones, big soup stones, prideless loans
Grill sick crows, motel moans and big fat Jones, woo woo

Martyrs don't do much for me
Though I enjoy them vicariously
After you, no! After me
No, I insist! Please, after me

Do I want to? With all that charm?
Do I want you? Twist my arm
Ha, do I want to? With all that charm?
Do I want you? Twist my arm, ah do it
