Dirty Back Road Lyrics - The B-52's

Review The Song (6)



Reckless drivin', like a sports car
God I want you, like a fuel engine!
Energized line, like a road
You-oo-oo-oo--oo ride me-ee-ee-ee-ee
Like a road
You-oo-oo-oo--oo ride me-ee-ee-ee-ee

Foot on the pedal
Feet in the air
Sand in my hair
Oh, don't look back
Don't look behind you
Wreckless drivin' on
Dirty Back Road

Foot on the pedal
Feet in the air
Sand in my hair
Oh, don't look back
Don't look behind you
Wreckless drivin' on
Dirty Back Road

not written by a girl | Reviewer: galaf | 4/15/13

I hardly imagine a girl writing a song about a fuel engine, foot on the pedal or energized line, not to say dirty back road in a suggestive manner.

If seems a queer love song masked in straight love song, the female singers being accomplice.

Idiots Are At the Gates! | Reviewer: Ajarianne | 11/26/12

"Anal Intercourse"? Gay? Straight? How old are you people who say this? What color is the sky in your World? If you'd seen the B-52's in interviews they SAID how they came to the lyrics. Also see the video with Cindy singing a capella pronouncing the words. It's "BRAKE FAST" - see the original MTV video of the song - no anal sex involved anywhere. I know - I must be ancient! ~;) Good music - no matter how ya slice it, but the sky is still blue here. Enjoy!

It's quite a sad song... | Reviewer: RideMe | 2/4/12

I don't think it's about "getting a little anal action", it's more likely to be about a careless lover - literally. Considering that Fred and Ricky are/were gay, and that Cindy was Ricky's sister, I'd say it's more likely written from the point of view of a young man. He's been a little careless with his lovers and found himself with someone who is using his body in a very cold and careless manner. The B-52s often had a lot of sadness in their songs (and joy, of course) which just makes them all the more interesting.

Kinda sounds like it? | Reviewer: Stinger6 | 7/25/11

Is there anyone who doesn't know that this song is about gettin' some back door action? Many of the B-52's songs are thinly veiled references to sex. Dirty Back Road? My God, how much more obvious can you be? And "Roam"? Am I the only person that knows what "Around the World" means? Not to mention "Bush Fire", which is a reference to a natural readhead...if you know what I mean ;)

It's not as "dirty" as you think... | Reviewer: Cybershaman | 11/27/09

I think it's just about having wild free sex on the ground somewhere. The girl has her feet in the air and sand in her hair. She urges her man not to look around (who cares if somebody is watching!) but focus on her instead. Just be reckless and enjoy the ride! :)

Hmmmm...... | Reviewer: Galen | 11/23/07

I love this song and The B-52's, it kind of sounds like this song may be about women singing about anal intercourse?
