OK, here's how to do it. You take a song lyric and put your own interpretation on what they're saying.

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


Young Girl - Gary Puckett and the Union Gap

The interpretation:

I'm finding it difficult to resist the temptation of becoming a paedophile.

Gonna lock her up in a trunk
So no big hunk
Can steal her away from me


Cliff Richard and the Shadows - Livin' Doll

The interpretation:

"Hey, I've just had a great idea for a film! You've got this guy, yeah? who chops all the limbs off this woman so that he can keep her locked away all to himself, right? We could call it Boxing Helena or something like that..."

I hate to do this to you
but I love somebody new
what can I do
and I can never never never go home again


24 hours from Tulsa - Gene Pitney

I was driving home to see you and stopped off at a cafe and shagged a woman I met there. So I can't be bothered seeing you again now.

The game was not intended to have any basis in fact or reality, but I must admit it's funny when it does!

Is she really going out with him?
Well, there she is. Let's ask her.
Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?
Mm-hmm
Gee, it must be great riding with him
Is he picking you up after school today?
Uh-uh
By the way, where'd you meet him?


Leader of the Pack - Shangri-Las

Hmm, so the leader of the local Hell's Angel chapter is engaged to a schoolgirl...

I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture? (yes, we see)
That's when I fell for (the leader of the pack)


He's a really tough guy. That's how come she met him in the sweet shop - he was probably in there buying sweet cigarettes.

(And then it just gets more and more stupid...)

Gold stainless nail,
torn through the distance of man as they regard the summit.
Cold reigning king,
Shelter the women that sing
As they produce the movement.
River running right on over my head


Hey man, I am stoned and haven't a clue what I just wrote on that piece of paper!

Same goes for any Jon Anderson lyrics for Yes.

Sexual Healing is something that's good for me
Whenever blue tear drops are falling
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you'll be there to relieve me


Marvin Gaye

I think I'll go and call up an 0898 number.

(Had to ask Dave about this and he said it used to be 0898, when questioned further on the issue he now says he's not so sure. :twisted: )

Euphemisms marked in red ......

Well I walked up to her and I asked her if she wanted to dance
She looked awful nice and so I hoped she might take a chance

When we danced I held her tight
Then I walked her home that night
And all the stars were shining bright
And then I kissed her

Each time I saw her I couldn't wait to see her again
I wanted to let her know that I was more than a friend

I didn't know just what to do
And so I whispered I love you
And she said that she loved me too
And then I kissed her

I kissed her in a way that I'd never kissed a girl before
I kissed her in a way that I hope she liked for evermore

I knew that she was mine so I gave her all the love that I had
Then one day she'll take me home to meet her mom and her dad

Then I asked her to be my bride
And always be right by my side
I felt so happy that I almost cried
And then I kissed her

And then I kissed her
And then I kissed her


We used to perform this and leave gaps in appropriate places - always went down well (and that's not a euphemism!)

I'd forgotten that you used to be in a band, Chris.

I like to go just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and making haste
Ain't my cup of meat


The Mighty Quinn - Manfred Mann's Earthband

I'm too thick (or stoned?) to write good lyrics.

Or it could possibly mean: when all the plates in the house are dirty I have me dinner out of a cup.

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?


(Carole King)

Or as it's alternatively phrased...

"Will you still respect me in the morning?"

Great Balls of Fire!

Remember The Moon is a Balloon, and Niven's frozen goolies that he immersed in a glass of brandy?
