Random Lyrics Thursday

Swordfish by The Dead Milkmen

Some people believe in astrology
Others believe in technology
Some people believe in all those "ologies"
But I believe in swordfish
He believes in swordfish

I believe in Happy Days
I believe in Joanie Loves Crotchie
I believe in all that TV crap
And I believe in swordfish
He believes in swordfish

Came up from the ghetto with the help of my stiletto
Every day I hear the people groan:
Why should we buy postage stamps?
We can make our own
We maybe doing something wrong
We could be running a little too long
I guess we better end this song
I say I believe in swordfish
He believes in swordfish

Willow's Song (aka The Wicker Man Song)

Heigh ho ! Who is there?
No one but me, my dear.
Please come say, How do?
The things I'll give to you.
By stroke as gentle as a feather
I'll catch a rainbow from the sky
And tie the ends together.

Heigh ho ! I am here
Am I not young and fair?
Please come say, How do?
The things I'll show to you.
Would you have a wond'rous sight
The midday sun at midnight?
Fair maid, white and red,
Comb you smooth and stroke your head
How a maid can milk a bull!
And every stroke a bucketful.

Soft Machine

I tell you what. I don't think much of the singing and i totally can't stand the more jazz-like aspects of their music, but their drummer is fantastic.

Feed the Tree by Belly

This old man Ive talked about
Broke his own heart,
Poured it in the ground.
Big red tree grew up and out,
Throw up its leaves,
Spins round and round.
I know all this and more.
So take your hat off
When youre talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
This little squirrel I used to be
Slammed her bike down the stairs.
They put silver where her teeth had been.
Baby silvertooth,she grins and grins.
I know all this and more.
So take your hat off boy
When youre talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
Take your hat off boy
When youre talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
This old man I used to be
Spins around, around, around the tree.
Silver baby come to me.
Ill only hurt you in my dreams.
I know all this and...
I know all this and...
I know all this and more.
So take your hat off boy
When youre talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
Take your hat off
When youre talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.

Milano Mosh by S.O.D.

You think that you're really hard
You think that you can mosh
Got your suspenders, and got your boots
You'd better wear armor, you fuckin' fool
WE MOSH, until we die
WE MOSH, until you fry
You think that you can try
But can you do... The Milano Mosh?

Twisted Sense of Whahuh?

So, everytime A Twisted Sense of God Part I by the Fine Arts Militia comes on, the opening lines really bug me.

I was talking to my assistant a couple of months back, and while we were talking about the obvious differences in men and women, I had to give up and say that men couldn't handle the period cycles that women go through. She countered and told me that men do have periods...They're called WARS.

I appreciate the message of the song and everything, but this analogy is just stupid. Wars are about power and conquest and ego and money. I'm hard-pressed to draw any parallels to shedding the lining of my uterus once a month. The only similarity is that both experiences could prove to be unpleasant for those nearby. I feel it's one of those dramatic statements people make that sound impressive but lack substance. It takes away from my already tenuous enjoyment of this song.

It's also ridiculous to say that because men are men, the release of their aggression results in violent conflict such as war, implying that women, if in the same position, would not make the same decision. Look at Madeleine Albright, Margaret Thatcher, Condoleeza Rice, and Hillary Clinton. Each one of these women would pursue a course of military action just as aggressively as any man in order to achieve their goals.

My other gripe about this song is that Chuck D. is pretty much just making a speech, with complete disregard for the music in the background. I am no fan of rap music, but at least they're usually working with the music. This song - and possibly all the songs on the album - are just spoken word with a beat in the background that has little to do with how Chuck D. delivers his lines. So annoying.

It's coming off the IPod.
