Mötley Crüe - Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)



Mötley Crüe - Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.) - Meaning of the song


"Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)" is a song by Mötley Crüe from their 1989 album Dr. Feelgood. Released in 1990 as the album's fifth single, it peaked at #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #34 on the Mainstream Rock charts.


Bassist Nikki Sixx explained:


"That's about chicks leaving you for chicks. It happens. It definitely happens. It's worse than a chick leaving you for a guy because there's nothing you can do about it." Vocalist Vince Neil added: "That was about a guy leaving a guy for a girl. The subject plagues men worldwide. I love it because when Elektra heard it they were like, 'Oh, this is perfect for a single.' In a Mötley fashion, we were like, 'Wonderful. We'll tell you later that it's about lesbians.'"


Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.) - Lyrics


Shes got an alligator bag top hat to match

Dressed in black on black

Shes got a Filipino girlie, she claims is her friend

I tell you boys, you just gotta laugh


Now I used to call her Cindy, she changed her name to Sin

I guess thats the name of her game

Yeah, I really used to love her then, the kitty she discovered

Its got to be a sexual thing


All around the world

Girls will be girls


Its the same ol, same ol situation

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain


I say, No, no, no

No, no, no


Introduced me to her lover in a cellophane dress

Then they bid me a sweet farewell

Last time I saw them they were kissing so softly

To the sound of wedding bells


Well, all around the world

Girls will be girls


Its the same ol, same ol situation

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain


Now don't you know

Girl, its the same ol, same ol situation

Everyday

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain


I say, No, no, no

No, no, no


Its the same ol, same ol situation

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain


Girl its the same ol, same ol situation

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain


You know we just gotta say

All around the world

Girls will be girls


Its the same ol, same ol situation

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain


Its the same ol, same ol situation

Its the same ol, same ol ball and chain
