Last night a little dancer came dancin' to my door
Last night a little angel Came pumping cross my floor
She said "Come on baby I got a licence for love
And if it expires pray help from above"

In the midnight hour she cried- "more, more,...

    The song is about a heroin addicted girl that comes to him while high. She dances into his life with an addiction. He falls for her and he does whatever he can to feed her addiction. It’s very sad if you think about it.

    It's about the purdy pervert fucking a fan or slut, or both. I believe that this was written by bvb and the Purdy man himself wrote it. That is my opinion and reasoning.

    Well this song is origanally by billy idol, I think what they're trying to say is that they love us and we should all feel equal

    This song is totally about sex. Billy Idol had a sexual encounter with a beautiful woman, so he had a very sexual attraction to her. And, it's about Billy Idol lusting over the fact that the woman is gorgeous that he just wants to make love to her.

    To be blunt, Rebel Yell is a Billy Idol song about sex.

    This is a song about Heroin Addiction and Heroin Addicts. Billy had a serious Smack problem, it historic fact.

    Analog to O.D.:
    "Come on baby I got a license for love
    And if it expires pray help from above"
    Analog to Heroin:
    But when I'm tired and lonely she sees me to bed
    Analog to Gay Prostitute working for smack he gets at 7-11:
    He lives in his own heaven
    Collects it to go from the seven eleven
    Well he's out all night to collect a fare
    Just so long, just so long it don't mess up his hair.
    Addiction:
    I'd sell my soul for you babe
    For money to burn with you
    I'd give you all, and have none, babe
    Just to, just to, just to, to have you here by me
    Because

    Its about drugs, maybe bourbon, maybe his little angel is PCP. After all, he'd sell his soul for her.

    It's a cover. The original artist was Billy Idol. But, It's about sex, plain and simple.

    It is I'm mean "but when I'm tired and lonely she gives me head" that's definitely about sex.

    yes it does sound like sex but is it really in bvb's nature to write songs about that? I could be wrong but that's my opinion.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think its about fucking a fan. IDK why it just seems like it would be a fan but either way I love this song.
