Talula

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Congratulate you
said you had a double tongue
balancing cake and bread
say goodbye to a glitter girl

Talula
Talula
you don’t want to lose her
she must be worth losing
if it is worth something
Talula
Talula
she’s brand new now to you
wrapped in your papoose
your little Fig Newton

say goodbye my baby gotta go
say goodbye my baby to the old world

ran into the Henchman who severed
Anne Boleyn
he did it right quickly a merciful man
she said 1+1 is 2
but Henry said that it was 3
so it was
here I am

Talula
Talula
I don’t want to lose it
it must be worth losing
if it is worth something
Talula
Talula
she’s brand new now to you
wrapped in your papoose
your little Fig Newton

and Jamaica
do you know, do you know what I have done
Mary M weaving on said
what you want is in the blood Senators
what you want is in the blood Senators
I got Big Bird on the fishing line
with a bit of a shout a bit of a shout
a bit of an angry snout
he’s my favourite hooker of the whole bunch
and I know about his only Bride
and how the Russians die on the ice
I got my rape hat on
honey but I always could accessorize
and I never cared too much for the money
but I know right now
that it’s in God’s hands
but I don’t know who the Father is

Talula
Talula
I don’t want to lose him
he must be worth losing
if it is worth something
Talula
Talula
he’s brand new now to you
wrapped in your papoose
your little Fig Newton

[Tornado mix intro]

She’s chasing tornados
I’m just waiting calmly
chasing her, hey

then goes directly into "Talula, Talula..."

[Tornado mix outro]

He’s chasing tornados
and I’m just waiting calmly
