When we were kids we’d hear about some joint in town or some trailer out in the country that was a gathering place for nameless adults who were sort of people of the night … well-traveled types or just locals with a penchant for underground activity. Anyway, these places were off-limits, and we could only imagine what went on.

In the song, a naive guy falls in love with a cheap older woman and just like us kids, never really knows what’s going on. He just knows it’s something wild. And, as with a lot of things, the imagination is better than the reality.
