39 Doing It Tonight(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album Bananas
There is a game called spin the bottle, its primary objective is to get girls naked. The contestants sit cross-legged in a circle and take it in turns to spin a bottle on the floor in front of them. When the bottle stops, the person to whom the neck is pointing has to remove an article of clothing. There's not much skill needed except for the collective efforts of the boys to spin the bottle so that it stops with the neck pointing at the same girl each time…that way you get to see some naughty bits much earlier in the game than you would with random and disconcerted efforts.
There was a time, when playing this game at a party, that all the bottles were occupied. It was early in the evening and none had yet been drained. However there were some girls who needed to be undressed, so a shoe was thrown into the ring with hilarious results; because Lenny had been drinking all day.
The main theme is about a girl who is desirable but unattainable, so the last verse is pure sour grapes and the word imagine takes on a different meaning.

I don't have a problem
I'm ragged round the edges
That's why everybody's sitting around
She wasn't in the running
