Cold Ethyl Lyrics

Play "Cold Ethyl"
on Amazon Music

One thing I miss
Is cold Ethyl and her skeleton kiss.
We met last night
Making love by the refrigerator light.

Ethyl, Ethyl,
Let me squeeze you in my arms.
Ethyl, Ethyl,
Come and freeze me with your charms.

One thing - it's...

    In my opinion, it is a mere song expressing an artist's creativity. How many of us can describe necrophilia in such detailed, yet metaphoric words? It clearly says, "Making love by the refrigerator light" and "come and freeze me with your arms tonight", lastly "SHE"S COLD IN BED. SHE OUGHTTA BE 'CAUSE ETHYL"S DEAD" Not to mention the fact that when you die, your body gets cold, so he clearly felt her dead body. And for the record, i think that it could also be about alchohol, seeing that in the 70's, Alice Cooper was an alcoholic, and that was what most of his music was about for a certain period. Really, it could be about whatever you think it is. That's what creative music is all about. Rock on, dudes.

    Alice Cooper himself, in a comeback to Ann Landers about the song said it was about necrophilia. His own words. Can’t debate that.

    My best friend in high school and I loved the song, "Cold Ethyl" because it was so shocking, yet you could tell Alice Cooper sang it with humor. Gallows humor, but it was never taken seriously. Somehow, Alice Cooper managed to sing this song, and make us laugh!

    Those who say it's about necrophilia or a dead girl on ice, you're wrong. Ethyl is alcohol (ethanol) - the type of alcohol we drink. When it comes to a girl's name, it's spelled Ethel, not Ethyl. When this song was written, Alice was going through a battle with alcoholism.

    Necrophilia is what it's about.
