    Newman continued on Last Exit To Brooklyn’s influence on the song:
    So basically the phrase is “in your snatch fits pleasure, broom shaped pleasure” combines fits and pleasure and Fitz like a second name, like Fitzpatrick so we thought “Fitzpleasure”, so more subtle. But it’s about the end of the chapter where she gets, er, gang-raped, so it’s really horrible.
    I [read the book.] I always believe that you write about what moves you and although that gang-rape scene is horrible… it really moved me, it’s really well written, you don’t really know which way is up after that chapter. I thought it was a really powerful thing to write about.
    The story in question ends particularly gruesome gang rape of Tralala involving a broom, though “broom-shaped” also alludes to the rapist’s genitals.
    The kids who were watching and waiting to take a turn took out their disappointment on Tralala and tore her clothes to small scraps put out their cigarettes on her nipples pissed on her jerkedoff on her jammed a broomstick up her snatch then bored they left her lying amongst the broken bottles rusty cans and rubble of the lot
    Interestingly, “Fitz” in Norman French means “son of,” and has historically been used as a prefixal surname title. As such, the title of the song could have an additional meaning of “son of pleasure.” This could pertain to the rapists bending to the will of personal pleasure, subsequently leading to vengeful, sexual violence.
