This is an analysis of the lyrics of hot cha, a song by They Might Be Giants from their 1990 album, Flood. Introduction: The seemingly innocuous song hot cha by They Might Be Giants is in fact an ironic look at the birth of Christianity in terms of the life of Jesus Christ. Hot Cha, where are you?
Everybody's eyes are closed
I can't see why I miss you so
So Hot Cha, where are you?
This verse is asking where Jesus is, and wondering why everybody's eyes are closed to Him. First time Hot Cha went away A floating island was his home Then the phone rang off the hook And Hot Cha had to come back home This refers to the first time that Jesus left his Apostles during his travel to the desert for 40 days. It is speculated that during these 40 days He visited god in heaven (i.e. floating island). Jesus then returned because humankind had not yet been absolved of their sins. Hot Cha, where are you?
Everybody's eyes are closed
I can't see why I miss you so
So Hot Cha, where are you?
Same as first verse. Second time he went away
Left the bathtub running over
Stereo on and cooking bacon
Never came back to tell us why
This refers to the ascension of Jesus into heaven. He left quite suddenly with things seemingly left undone; only later did people realize why Jesus left. If that honey would come back
We would throw such a party
Drink and cook the prodigal son
Fondue forks for everybody
It shows the ironic and superficial way people look at Jesus now, as an excuse to have a party. See Christmas. Also refers to the prodigal son, a biblical story. Hot Cha, where are you?
Everybody's eyes are closed
I can't see why I miss you so
So Hot Cha, where are you?
Hot Cha, where are you?
Hot Cha, where are you?
Same as first verse.
