Lyrics:

It's middle of the month
It's happening all over town
You know it's got me reeling forward
Got me falling to the ground
There's a new mag on the market
It's the best around
All the guys are talking
It's the best they ever found
All the guys are talking
'Cause they all want some
It's got me reaching in my pocket
Got me forking over cash
'Cause there's something in the middle
And it's giving me a rise
Every single month it's the same old trash
There's a girl in the middle
With her finger in her gash
There's a boy there in the middle
With a reamer up her ass
Penetration!
It's middle of the month
It's happening all over town
You know it's got me reeling forward
Got me falling to the ground
Its got me reaching in my pocket
Got me forkin' over cash
'Cause there's something in the middle
And it's giving me a rise
There's a girl in the middle
With her finger in her gash
Penetration!
Penetration in the centerfold
Penetration, penetration
Penetration in the centerfold! (echo)
