Not The American Average Lyrics

All the things that you said was it all in my head?

Come on baby
Keep it down, honey hush your lips
Clothes trailing from the backdoor to the bedroom
And I don’t even know your name

(Woo) Give me all you’ve got
Make this...

    When asked about Not The American Average, Ben Bruce said that they story behind it was that a woman told them that the average size of an American's penis was 10 inches (hence the line when they all shout "10 INCH", which many people misinterpret as "TODAY").
    Ben's response to her was "You're kidding? In Europe it's only 2 inches!"

    The line, "The things that you said was it all in my head" means that the girl was only being respectful to him and he thought she wanted to get together with him.

    The line "Girl get down its almost over take it all the way" obviously means that Danny is going to cum but he wants the girl he hooked up with to deep throut him first before he does.

    I believe Danny wanted to be with a girl but she only wanted to get laid. She leads Danny on to thinking he can have her and ends up giveing the girl what she wants . They have good sex but at the end he ends up killing her because she's a whore ( whatever that means )

    In an interview, Danny says that it's about a girl he used to fuck and she had a boyfriend. She also helped him write the song.

    i think its about a girl Danny met on tour or something that was a whore and he hooked up with her and didnt know that she was using him, so he basically goes bat-shit crazy. seems pretty simple.

    I find this in many different areas. He is raping a girl but she is a whore so she ends up going along with it.Which he ends up killing her in the end.
    Or he is with this girl who is a complete whore and he wants to be with her but knows he can't because she is a whore.
    Or she is just a whore that he gets together with then kills in the end.
