Lab Track: A Kiss is Not a Contract

Today’s Lab Track, suggested by Anne, is a little less sciency and a little more on the social side of things. Flight of the Conchords, a comedy music duo from New Zealand, is amazing (and polarizing, at least to my social circle. Half my friends think they’re awesome, half my friends are thoroughly bored by everything they do. I am firmly in the former camp.) This song of theirs is a funny little ditty about consent. Enjoy!

A kiss is not a contract
But it’s very nice
It’s very nice

Just because you’ve been
Exploring my mouth
Doesn’t mean you get to take
An expedition further south, no

A kiss is not a contract
But it’s very nice
It’s very, very nice

Just because we’ve been
Playing tonsil hockey
Doesn’t mean you get to score the goal
That’s in my jockeys

Just because I’m in a two man novelty band
Doesnt mean it’s all about poontang
I can’t go around loving everyone
I just wouldn’t get anything done

You can take me out to dinner
That might be quite nice
You could buy me a burrito
And some beans and rice
But that won’t get you into pants paradise

They call it a fly
Because it takes you up to heaven, oh oh

A kiss is not a contract
But it’s very nice
Its very, very nice

I’m only one man, baby, pretty baby
We’re only two men, ladies
Oh babies, oh, pretty babies
