I really hate Joe Dirt to Weird Al! We don't have difference in opinion.
Good song but the video is perverted.
Not my favorite but it is close to 7th place...
In the video, he EATS the women. EW!!

Why does it not surprise me that he only dates freaks?

@Matthew David Garrison: It screams "Cake" so much that I surfed to this page to see if they collaborated or played on the song. Not uncommon for Al to do an original in the style of other artists. See "Dog Eat Dog" from one of his mid-'80s albums. Definite style homage to Talking Heads. I still remember him introducing it on Dr. Demento as being in the style of "a band whose lead singer wears really big suits".
Good song. TERRIBLE video...

sounds so much like Cake.
I'll take y'all's word that this is an original song. But is it just me, or does the style of the song SCREAM Cake?

Lol!!! One of Weird Al's best songs to date!!!
I wonder if all his songs about girls are true. I pretty much doubt it.

amen to that
This may well be one of Al's best originals to date. Excellent song.
