Hey Lyrics

Artist: Pixies
Album: Death To The Pixies

been trying to meet you
must be a devil between us
or whores in my head
whores at my door
whores in my bed
but hey
have you
been if you go i will surely die
we're chained

uh said the man to the lady
uh said the lady to the man she adored
and the whores like a choir
go uh all night
and mary ain't you tired of this
that the mother makes when the baby breaks
we're chained

by wish-man on 10/3/2008 1:25pm
well, I dont see any idea or sense in this song, but it makes me happy as whole Album. I think this is the best album they ever did and my favourite one - Doolittle... also I like their so called 'drum' songs as Into The White or I Bleed...

um yeah...amazing song...i liked how the used it in "Zack and Miri make a prono"....good choice....
by Lewis on 11/30/2008 9:33am
Im not sure what the song means but ive only just started listening to them, maybe its about a girl always loving a man no matter how much he sleeps around, and that the man will always be in her memory, im not sure, theres lots of different things this song could interpretate.
by JerrysCatTom on 12/4/2008 1:51am
so hard not to move your hips to this song ;)
by Hannah on 12/11/2008 3:01pm
Hm this is what I think it means: A guy likes a girl but he is still tempted by all the other girls he sees (whores) but yea the second to last line, I have no idea. But whatever it means it's an awesome song! Love The Pixies
by Black Frances the Mute on 12/11/2008 8:27pm
I always was confused with the meaning to this song. I've been listening to the Pixies for a long time and this song is freaking awesome. I watched Zack and Miri make a Porno yesterday and this song is in the background of one of the scenes. I thought the song made perfect sense in the context of this scene! I can now say that I might have an idea of what Hey means!
by azul on 12/18/2008 9:55am
Los pixies son todo y no hay que estarle buscando el significado a las cosas...solo sentirlas , sobre todo la música
by Liam1564 on 1/23/2009 10:29pm
I've loved this song for years but saw it in Zack and Miri yesterday, it is used so well, sits in the background for a few minutes then then come to the front and breaks ur heart. Brilliant. Maybe not the best film but that scene is really good.
by cyrao on 1/31/2009 1:09am
amazing song! beautiful!
perfect in 'zack and miri' !!
by Eden on 2/5/2009 12:50am
I was told about this song a few months back and loved it then but forgot about it till I watched Zack and Miri make a porno! I had to go and buy it on itunes then so i will never forget it soooooooooooooooooooooooo good! Im now a pixies fan!
by ciao on 2/10/2009 5:16pm
well if you have ever been so in love with someone so much that you push each other away and at the same time cant get away from each other i think this song will mean alot to you and the lyrics will come out like writing on the wall... its a love song for sure.
by dani on 2/13/2009 8:29pm
great fuckin song
by Ceelos on 2/20/2009 9:25am
I love this song. At first its meaning is confusing, but the lyrics are pretty straight forward. It's about a couple who are "chained" together in their relationship by a common child. The man has an addiction to prostitutes, and out of frustration the mother kills the "baby", thus breaking the chain. Shocking I know, but The Pixies themes are almost always this dark.
by Ophidian on 3/4/2009 2:52am
It merely overwhelms me! When something from the inside squeezes my throat i know its a damn good song:)
Have you seen a clip with 2 clips dancing and singing "Hey!" with The Pixies? They are damn good too:)
by cool on 3/15/2009 3:53pm
I think, the meaning of the song is, that a man loves a woman, that sleeps around very much. he is crazy in love, and in his opinion, they belong together.
by myName on 3/25/2009 11:52am
mary ?
or 'may be' ?
by Tash on 3/27/2009 4:27pm
I first heard this song on Zack and Miri Make a Porno, as weird as that sounds i thought i had to find this song.. Its pretty awesome! :B
by [V]ai on 4/3/2009 11:59pm
I going to learn to play it on my guitar.
by Slash´ on 4/22/2009 8:01am
This song makes me happy :) beautiful
by Lissa on 4/30/2009 7:31pm
The Pixies are a unique, much like my love for them, and they put on the best fucking concert i EVER been to!!!!!!
by Neeraj on 5/10/2009 6:09am

by bacho on 8/18/2009 5:45am
by sees it clearly on 10/15/2009 9:58pm
this is my and my husbands song... He has a problem with cheating. I always forgive him because we are chained. but even though its clear that he has been with whores he is always like "well where have you been?" Like even though his faults are clear he still wants to put the blame on me.... This is the third time we have done this, so I'm mary and yes I'm tired of this
by hydr on 11/12/2009 2:06pm
now that they have a baby...they are chained.
by williamm on 11/26/2009 4:10pm
i've loved this song for a very long time, but only recently found out the meaning. when it gets to "...the sound that the mother makes when the baby breaks..." sends shivers down my spine every tie without fail. a painfully honest and emotional song. love it!
by Leslie on 12/2/2009 2:10pm
I agree. I had heard this on Zack and Miri and I had a feeling it was The Pixies. I am so excited that I found out for sure! This song is amazing, as is most of their others
by philip on 12/5/2009 12:07pm
this guy hit it right on the spot>

by pixies fan on 12/16/2009 4:30pm
thank u the pixies for this good sound
by Tray on 2/19/2010 7:53am
I'm still convinced that the lyrics is "When the finger breaks". It sounds nothing like baby to me. Go listen to the song and stop being sheeple.
by marxx on 3/9/2010 10:30am
haiku poetry
by mesometoo on 3/19/2010 10:54am
I think this song is about a missed opportunity in love. The couple never really gets together, but if they did it would be this great,awesome love. The whores just represent every other woman he is with. They are whores because he doesn't love them the way he would her. And they are chained by this love they never requite.
by mesometoo on 3/19/2010 11:05am
Also the "uh" and the whole "sound the mother makes when the baby breaks" ....I think just represents the sound of grief.
by Reuben on 4/24/2010 10:55am
are you sure it doesnt say "Uh is
that the mother makes with a fake embrace" coz i dunno but thats kinda wat it sounds like... like she jus tells her self that she is still inlove with him.. :S but i guess it would make sence with the whole killing of the baby thing jus coz its..dark...
by naty on 5/23/2010 12:40pm
it's a blasphemy. that's all it is. don't look for meanings.
by MD on 6/13/2010 8:52pm
The "sound that the mother makes when the baby breaks" lyric is definitely correct, I just heard a 1988 BBC live version in which it was crystal clear. I don't think I can post URLs here, but just search YouTube or Google for "Pixies - Hey (Live in studio 1988)" to find it.
by ramy on 7/1/2010 7:44pm
what meaning? the song don't has meaning's always about the music
by nadia on 9/18/2010 4:04pm
It's about no matter how many girls he's with he still thinks about That One because it says he's with an amount of girls but still mentions her and without her he'll "die" he's chained man
by Sebastian on 12/16/2010 1:20pm
I can´t get out this song of my night and in the morning, walking on the street, every where...I have that voice...saying hey!! and Cha in ined...
ufff terrible---:)
by Brandilyn on 1/27/2011 2:12pm
by Chara on 2/15/2011 7:24pm
Don't you mean "Where is my mind?"
Hahaha, sorry, it's a bad joke... ;)
by M on 4/23/2011 4:53pm
I think this song is about a man whose lust for "whores" keeps him from having a meaningful relationship with a woman who likes him, maybe his wife, and she gets fed up with it and breaks the bond that holds them together
by Screamie on 7/16/2011 6:45am
Eah! Baby! The pixies! Awesome! From Russia with love))) Hey!))
by me on 11/28/2011 1:42pm
beautiful song
by stephen on 3/28/2012 7:39pm
The song is about longing, longing for someone he can't have. He's in love with her. He's chained to her emotionally. Even though he has been with a lot of other women and maybe he's with one at the present; he still can't get over this one.
by Nuwanda on 7/16/2012 6:37pm
I agree with Stephen, i think thats the whole purpose of this song.. Beautiful, by the way! Love it!
by DEVLIN on 1/21/2013 6:53pm
I love this song now i did not like it before but now i like it
