It's a Wizard of Oz reference - that's how the wicked witch dies, crushed by a house!

I'm sure I heard once that it was supposed to reference the part in the Wizard of Oz books were (after the Tornado at the farmhouse )the house/chimney falls on the Wicked Witch of the East and kills her.

This could be wrong though,not too sure tbh.

I can still remember all the words to this, I believe it was on my Top of the Pops Cassette, around late 98?

I love when it goes all slow and blurred together.

I'm pretty sure it means a black eye 'i'm ready for fighting time' etc.

Just FYI it's a sample of this song:

They re-released the original song recently - the reference is much clearer:

In the 1998 TOTP Christmas Special, Maya dressed up as Dorothy with a Toto doll before chucking it away and stripping the Dorothy costume off.

Aye.

And the reference above to their other hit of 1998 - 'If You Buy This Record Your Life Will Be Better' - had a sample from Madonna's 'Material Girl' or at any rate copied a portion of it!

I always just thought that the writer was being odd! The line has lost its quirkiness now that I know, from reading this thread, that it was sampled from another song in which it makes more sense.
