Structure and meaning
The song's structure is similar-sounding to previous work by Zappa. However, in this particular song Zappa satirically added a more pop feel to it to go along with the theme of the song. The song addresses the stereotypes affiliated with the disco era. The vain tone of the song is set by the lyrics "Leave his hair alone, but you can kiss his comb." The lyrics "Disco boy, do the bump every night, 'til the disco girl who's really right, gonna fall for your line, and feed you a box full of chicken delight." indicate that the disco boy isn't looking for love, but just a one-night stand. The lyric "but thank the lord that you still got hands, to help you do that jerkin' that'll blot out your disco sorrow" alludes to his lust for the disco girl and that when he loses her he can always just masturbate. Besides disco this song is also a commentary on Zappa's dislike of men who find themselves irresistible to women.
