Once Bitten, Twice Shy". Well the times are getting hard for you, little girl I'm a humming and a strumming all over god's world You can't remember when you got your last meal And you don't know just how a woman feels. You didn't know what rock and roll was Until you met my drummer on a grey tour bus I got there in the nick of time Before he got his hands across your state line. Now it's the middle of the night on the open road And the heater don't work and it's oh so cold You're looking tired, you're looking kind of beat The rhythm.
Ian Hunter’s rock song Once Bitten, Twice Shy tells the story of a touring rock musician who encounters a woman and becomes intimate with her, believing her to be sexually inexperienced. SPOILER: When he learns the woman was not virginal, he expresses surprise, disgust, and disappointment - in a classic display of male-dominated culture’s hegemonic sexual morés. This song is featured on the self-titled 1975 solo debut album by Mott and the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter.
Once Bitten Twice Shy" is an expression meaning that if you've been hurt, you are less likely to put yourself in that position again.
