Rebel Yell Lyrics

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,...

    its like when you eat something for the first and you like it, you want more. This song is kinda say that something bad for you can get addicting. I think that's what BVB and Billy Idol were going for.

    I think it’s about a man falling for a Woman. It started out with him just wanting sex... but she enticed him just by being loving carefree self... he fell for her... became addicted to her... fantasizes about her... and now realizes he loved her... still loves her... but he believes it’s too late... her openness is gone... everything he loved is gone... she is gone.... but he’d sell his soul to get it all back. My ex plays this song every time we are together.

    as a matter of fact there is more to the song than the obvious.

    he talks about it in a 1984 interview.

    Have a look and then rethink your comment..

    Rebel Yell happens to be a bourbon he drank with Rolling Stones artists, and he wrote a song about it, but it also has elements from situations he found himself in.

    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.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    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.
