Sticky Honey
Juliette Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Money, money, money, money
Sticky, sticky, sticky honey
Man lands on Mars
Man rips off his broken parts

And you're gone, and you're gone
Now you wanna get it on
And you won't, and you won't
Why you wanna do me wrong?

[Incomprehensible]

Woman, woman, woman, woman
You gotta let go your swollen tongue
Pleading, pleading, pleading with a man
Gave him birth to Aphrodite's son

And you're gone, and you're gone
Now you wanna get it on
And you won't, and you won't
Why you wanna do me wrong?

And you're gone, and you're gone
Why you wanna get it on?
And you won't, no, you won't
Why you wanna do me wrong?

You got the best damn blues that I've ever seen
And I'm swimming like a shooting star across the galaxy
You got the best damn blues

And you're gone, and you're gone
Now you wanna get it on
And you won't, no, you won't
Why you wanna do me wrong?

And you're gone, and you're gone




Oh, you wanna get it on
Get, get, get it on, get, get, get it on

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to "Sticky Honey" by Juliette and the Licks evoke a sense of confusion and a lack of control in a relationship. The repeating phrase of "money, money, money, money, sticky, sticky, sticky honey" gives off the idea that materialistic and clingy behaviors can overpower a relationship. The mention of a man landing on Mars and ripping off his broken parts may represent a need for transformation and the idea of starting anew. However, the focus shifts to the idea of betrayal as the lyrics state "why you wanna do me wrong?".


As the song progresses, the lyrics shift towards discussing the power dynamics within a relationship. The use of "woman, woman, woman, woman" could symbolize a need for strength and empowerment in a relationship, as the lyrics plead with a man to "let go" and allow the woman to take control. The lyrics then reference giving birth to Aphrodite's son, which could represent the idea of rebirth and a new beginning for the woman.


Overall, "Sticky Honey" seems to represent the complexities and difficulties within a relationship, highlighting the tension caused by power dynamics and the struggle to maintain balance.
