How'd you - get your
Teeth so - pearly?
Dew drop - dentures
White washed - faces
She runs from the third world, pearly

Vanilla (I feel it closing in)
Milkshakes (put it back in)
From Hard Rock (whatever you say)
Cafes (make it go away)
That's where (I feel it closing in)
She got her (put it back in)
Sweet tooth (make it go away)
For white boys (whatever you say)

She runs from the third world, pearly
Hurts me

Darling use me
Darling hurts me
Darling use me

    I am not certain, but I think that the meaning of Pearly's lyrics are to do with fake people, Possibly based on Hollywood.

    Fake teeth, fake tits, fake everything... including personalities.

    Just a guess...

    I think this song is about someone wanting to escape something in their past ["make it go away"] maybe sexual abuse or being poor when she was young [She runs from the third world" or "That's where she got her sweet tooth for white boys"] and has become a masochistic ["whatever you say"] nymphomaniac ["darling, use me"].
