I was listening to Gilbert O' Sullivans song 'Clare' the other day.........

Ostensibly a sweet paean to his four year old niece, it saddened me how some of the lyrics would be misconstrued as something else nowadays..........

Nothing means more to me
Than hearing you say
'I'd like to marry you,
will you marry me Uncle Ray'

(Gilbert's real name was Raymond)......

Y'know........it's the sort of thing my little son says to his mum........'when I grow up I want to marry you mummy'.......yet when I heard it I had to chuckle to myself at the thought of any aspiring musician today having the temerity to hand that lyric in to his record company.........

So.....lyrics that you wouldn't get away with nowadays......c'mon there must be loads!........should be good for a laugh..........

Blue Mink.............Melting Pot (I Think)

Take a pinch of white man
Wrap him up in black skin
Add a touch of blue blood
And a little bitty bit of red Indian boy
Oh like a Curly Latin kinkies
Oh Lordy, Lordy, mixed with yellow Chinkees, yeah
You know you lump it all together
And you got a recipe for a get along scene
Oh what a beautiful dream
If it could only come true, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all its got And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Rabbis and the friars
Vishnus and the gurus
We got the Beatles or the Sun God
Well it really doesn't matter what religion you choose
And be thankful little Mrs. Graceful
You know that livin' could be tasteful
We should all get together in a lovin machine
I think I'll call up the queen
It' s only fair that she knows, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all its got And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

I'd be worried Terrence!

I'm glad we've reached a point in our evolution where "Achey Breaky Heart" is no longer an acceptable rhyme.

I'm sure "Sweet Sixteen" would have trouble being relased now, too.

Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy thats his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot hes a millionaire

Guns N Roses - One In A Million

Immigrants and faggots
They make no sense to me
They come to our country
And think they'll do as they please
Like start some mini Iran
Or spread some ****ing disease
They talk so many goddamn ways
It's all greek to me

way down in alabama where the darkies shovel coal, a darky shoved a shovel up another darkies hole. OH! said the foreman we're here to shovel coal, so he shoved another shovel up another darkies hole. They called for the doctor but the doctor couldnae come so they shoved another shovel up another darkies bum.




These opinions expressed are in no way my own

This make me cringe,Des'ree Life:

I'm afraid of the dark,
'specially when I'm in a park
And there's no-one else around,

Ooh, I get the shivers
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news

Argggghhhh!!!!

always a song that makes me laugh but crikey!

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run girl,
You're much too young girl

With all the charms of a woman
You've kept the secret of your youth
You led me to believe
You're old enough
To give me Love
And now it hurts to know the truth, Oh,

Young girl get out of my mind
my love for you is way outta line
better run girl, your much too young girl

Beneath your perfume and make-up
You're just a baby in disguise
And though you know
That it is wrong to be
Alone with me
That come on look is in your eyes, Oh,

Young girl get outta my mind
My love for you is way outta line
better run girl, Your much too young girl

So hurry home to your mama
I'm sure she wonders where you are
Get out of here
Before I have the time
To change my mind
'Cause I'm afraid we'll go too far, Oh,

Young girl get outta my mind
my love for you is way outta line
better run girl, your much too young girl
(until fade)

'One In A Million' by Guns N' Roses is fairly dodgy. Part of it was quoted up a bit, but there's another bit as well -

"Police and n*ggers, get out of my way
Don't want to buy none of your gold chains today"

I don't think the Fugees would get away with these lyrics today :

I play my enemies like a game of chess,where I rest
No stress
If you don't smoke sess,lest
I must confess, my destinys manifest
In some Goretex and sweats I make treks like I'm homeless
Rap orgies with Porgy and Bess
Capture your bounty like Elliot Ness, YES
Bless you if you represent the Fu
But I'll hex you with some witch's brew if you're Doo Doo
Voo Doo
I can do what you do, easy, believe me
Frontin' n*ggas give me hee-bee-gee-bees
So while you're imitating Al Capone
I'll be Nina Simone
And defacating on your microphone

I'd be worried Terrence!
If he's still saying it when he's 16 we can always go on Jeremy Kyle............

I always chuckle at Billy J Kramer's 'Little Children'.....favourite lines in bold..........

Little children, you better not tell on me
I'm tellin' you
Little children, you better not tell what you see
And if you're good
I'll give you candy and a quarter
If you're quiet like you oughta be
And keep a secret with me


I wish they would go away
Little children, now why aren't you playin' outside
I'm askin' you
You can't fool me, 'cause I'm gonna know if you hide
And try to peek
I'm gonna treat you to a movie
Stop your gigglin', children do be nice
Like little sugars and spice

You saw me kissin' your sister
You saw me holdin' her hand
But if you snitch to your mother
Your father won't understand

I wish they would take a nap
Little children, now why don't you go bye-bye
Go anywhere at all
Little children, I know you would if you tried
Go up the stairs
Me and your sister, we're goin' steady
How can I kiss her when I'm ready to
With little children like you around
I wonder what can I do around
Little children like you

Al Jolson - Sonny Boy


Climb up on my knee Sonny Boy
Though you're only three Sonny Boy
You've no way of knowing
There's no way of showing
What you mean to me Sonny Boy.

When there are grey skies,
I don't mind the grey skies.
You make them blue Sonny Boy.
Friends may foresake me.
Let them all foresake me.
I still have you Sonny Boy.

You're sent from heaven
And I know your worth.
You made a heaven
For me here on earth.

When I'm old and grey dear
Promise you won't stray dear
For I love you so Sonny Boy......

Birthday by The Sugarcubes...........

She lives in this house over there
Has her world outside it
Scrapples in the earth with her fingers and her mouth
She's five years old

Thread worms on a string
Keeps spiders in her pocket
Collects fly wings in a jar
Scrubs horse flies
And pinches them on a line
Ohhh..

She has one friend, he lives next door
They're listenening to the weather
He knows how many freckles she's got
She scratches his beard

She's painting huge books
And glues them together
They saw a big raven
It glided down the sky
She touched it
Ohh..

Today is a birthday
They're smoking cigars
He's got a chain of flowers
And sows a bird in her knickers
Ohhh..

They're smoking cigars
They lie in the bathtub

A chain of ... flowers
