    Great album, one of his more mellow moments. Makes for good late night listening, was just about to call it a night but now I just have to listen to it.

    MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
    All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
    Someone left the cake out in the rain
    and I don't think that I can take it
    'cause it took so long to bake it
    and I'll never have that recipe again
    Oh, no!

    Oh no indeed!!! :D

    Or, indeed, the B-side;

    Michael Booth's talking bum.
    Michael Booth's talking bum.
    Michael Booth's talking bum.
    He has the only talking bum in the land!

    :D

    Precious few modern lyrics have genuine value. And neither did many of yesteryears'. Here's one of the most toe-curlingly awful ones from years back.


    See the tree, how big it's grown
    But friend it hasn't been too long
    It wasn't big
    I laughed at her and she got mad
    The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
    Then the first snow came
    And she ran out to brush the snow away
    So it wouldn't die
    Came runnin' in all excited
    Slipped and almost hurt herself
    And I laughed till I cried
    She was always young at heart
    Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
    And I surprised her with a puppy
    Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
    And it would sure embarrass her
    When I came in from workin' late
    'Cause I would know
    That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
    Over some sad and silly late, late show

    And honey, I miss you
    And I'm bein' good
    And I'd love to be with you
    If only I could

    She wrecked the car and she was sad
    And so afraid that I'd be mad
    But what the heck
    Though I pretended hard to be
    Guess you could say she saw through me
    And hugged my neck
    I came home unexpectedly
    And caught her cryin' needlessly
    In the middle of the day
    And it was in the early Spring
    When flowers bloom and robins sing
    She went away

    And honey, I miss you
    And I'm bein' good
    And I'd love to be with you
    If only I could

    One day while I was not at home
    While she was there and all alone
    The angels came
    Now all I have is memories of Honey
    And I wake up nights and call her name
    Now my life's an empty stage
    Where Honey lived and Honey played
    And love grew up
    And a small cloud passes overhead
    And cries down on the flower bed
    That Honey loved

    And see the tree how big it's grown
    But friend it hasn't been too long
    It wasn't big
    And I laughed at her and she got mad
    The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

    (Bobby Goldsboro)

    Now please excuse me while I go off and vomit.

    Not exactly a song/lyrics, but got me thinking of John Cooper Clarke and his words of wisdom in the form of poetry. Here's T w at

    You're all not trying hard enough. Here's Bad Manners' version of Dicky Dee and the Don't's classic Nee Nee Na Na Nu Nu

    The Day that Thatcher Dies

    The Day that Thatcher Dies

    We will laugh the day that Thatcher dies,
    Even though we know it's not right,
    We will dance and sing all night.
    I was blind in 1979, by '82 I had clues,
    By 1986 I was mad as hell.
    The teachers at school, they took us for fools,
    They never taught us what to do,
    But Christ we were strong, we knew all along,
    We taught ourselves the right from wrong.
    And the punk rock kids, and the techno kids,
    No, it's not their fault.
    And the hip hop boys and heavy metal girls,
    No, it's not their fault.
    It was love, but Tories don't know what that means,
    She was Michelle Cox from the lower stream,
    She wore high-heeled shoes while the rest wore flat soles.
    And the playground taught her how to be cruel,
    I talked politics and she called me a fool,
    She wrapped her ankle chain round my left wing heart.
    Ding dong, the witch is dead, which old witch?
    The wicked witch.
    Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead.
