After going through tracks like Squeeze's labelled With Love:
She unscrews the top of a new whiskey bottle
And shuffles about in her candle lit hovel,
Like some kind of witch with blue fingers in mittens
She smells like the cat and the neighbours she sickens,
And almost anything by Kid Creole and the Coconuts, in particular Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy, in which good ole August Darnell offers this explaination for why he couldn't possibly be the father of Annie:
See if I was in your blood
Then you wouldn't be so ugly
My weekly favourite has to be the opening line from Reward by The Teardrop Explodes:
Bless my cotton socks I'm in the news
It doesn't get any better really.
Back later with some more warped lyrics. In the meantime ponder this - if you could be in any one band what genre would it be? Myself, it'd have to be a big band playing Cuban music or jazz - kinda like Kid Creole, Blue Rondo A'La Turk or even Ricky Ricardo's Big Band...Cuban Pete here I come!
