"Unskinny Bop" is a song by Poison. According to Poison guitarist C.C. DeVille, the phrase "Unskinny Bop" has no particular meaning. DeVille wrote the music and used the phrase as a placeholder for the lyrics, which lead singer Bret Michaels would write. When their producer Bruce Fairbairn heard the phrase, he thought it was perfect for the song, even though he had no idea what it meant.

Poison formed in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1984 as Paris. They moved to Los Angeles in an ambulance Michaels bought for $700 and begin playing in clubs there. When their guitarist quit, they chose DeVille over Slash and Steve Silva, who also applied. Slash eventually joined Guns N' Roses and Silva was in the The Joe Perry Project. Poison got a record deal in 1986, disbanded in 1994 and re-formed in 1999. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 2)

On the 2002 Poison album Hollyweird, there's a song called "Home (Bret's Story)," where Michaels sings: "I eat dinner with Nick Cage and Charlie Sheen, Nick asks me what the hell 'Unskinny Bop' means, it's slang for CC banging a porno queen."

LyricsEdit

Uh what's got you so jumpy?
Why can't you sit still? Yeah
Like gasoline you wanna pump me
And leave me when you get your fill, yeah

Every time I touch ya, uh you get hot
I wanna make love, you never stop
Come up for air, you pull me to the floor
What's been goin' on in that head of yours?

Just blows me away, yeah
Unskinny bop, bop
All night and day, yeah

Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop
She just loves to play
Unskinny bop, nothin' more to say

You look at me so funny
Love bite got you actin' oh so strange
You got too many bees in your honey
Am I just another word in your page? Yeah, yeah

Every time I touch ua, uh you get hot
I wanna make love, you never stop
Come up for air, you pull me to the floor
What's been goin' on in that head of yours?

Just blows me away, yeah
Unskinny bop, bop
All night and day, yeah

Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop
She just loves to play
Unskinny bop, nothin' more to say

You're sayin' my love won't do ya
But that ain't love written on your face
Well honey, I can see right through ya
Yeah, who ridin' who at the end of the race

What's right?
What's wrong?
Uh what's left?
What the hell is goin' on?

Unskinny bop
Just blows me away, yeah
Unskinny bio, bop
All night and day

Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop
She just loves to play
Up for air, you pull me to the floor

Unskinny bop
Just blows me away, yeah
Unskinny bop, bop
All night and day

Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop
She just loves to play
Unskinny bop, ooh

Unskinny bop, bop
Just blows me away
Unskinny bop, bop, bop, bop
All night and day
Unskinny bop
