They Might Be Giants. Album Factory Showroom. Dressed only in clothes From her head to her toes This is the way The talking part goes. The opening track on the 1996 album Factory Showroom by They Might Be Giants. This song is designed to echo a 1970s blaxploitation funk song about sex, a la Theme from Shaft. They Might Be Giants have claimed that this is simply a song about sex. However, many theories abound that it specifically references Klinefelter syndrome. John Flansburgh has denied this interpretation.
