    Hey, Rudyard Kipling wrote "The water will wet us".
    Seems as if America's in fine company! ;)

    Agree with the thrust of your post (crap, talk about yer bad lyrics) but the lyrics to Kid Charlemagne make perfect sense, if you know the backstory.
    I have a harder time with Pretzel Logic.
    I guess the lyrics mean "Wow, those were real Quaaludes!"

    "She got electric [slang for breasts] / Her mamma too / Ya know I read it in magazeeen-o..."
    I didn't even know it was gibberish until a week or 2 ago I had it running through my head. I googled the lyrics and got the whole back story.

    I'd always thought that it was "She's got electric boots ...a mohair suit ..." Learn something new everyday.

    Up on the slab: the hamsterdance song — as heard, and seen, on the enhanced CD, hampton the hamster: hamsterdance hits. I have a lovely copy in my hot little hands, right now.

    I remember it well. It was the first time ever the net made any sort of noise, at least in my humble abode. It was also the first time it made no sense. None whatsoever ;)

    What's more: I nearly died of fright. Thanks nerlo. The year was 1998.

    Hit it! (or don't.) :wacky:
