Lotus Eaters

This song is by Moloko and appears on the album Do You Like My Tight Sweater? (1995) and on the remix album All Back to the Mine (2001).

Spikey lady shiny queen
Don't you tell them what you've seen
Plastic people silicon
Never let them in your home

(Don't become a middle man
Keep your mouth shut if you can)
Don't you tell them what you know
They will go anyway the wind blows

Be my best friend, be my baby
I'll be there for you maybe
(Don't get on the roller coaster
Ya burn your fingers on the toasters)

Just a fair weather friend
Gone when the summer end
They will look into your eyes
Tell you pretty perfume lies

(Slinky slimy lotus eaters, jeepers, creepers
Get a load of those peepers)
Talking all that mumbo jumbo
People pass in solo limbo

See them slip, see them slide
But have you seen the nasty side?
(With all the smiling and kissing
Listen to the hiss hiss hissing)

She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown

Don't let them poke, don't let them peek
Their friendly chat is cheap
You look so fine, you look so hip
You're styling makes me trip

Take your place if they could
These are the people in your neighbourhood
(She slips, she slides
She don't know why she hide)

Poking, peeking, sneaking, cheating, sniffing, sliding
A running and hiding
Creeping, crawling, feeling and mauling
Fickle little tickles
Brains like pickles

She slip, she slides
She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown

She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown

She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown

She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown
Send in the clown, send in the clown

She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
She slip, she slide
She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown

She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Finger lickin' good
Kill you if she could
Dig it when you're down
Send in the clown

She don't know why she hide
Dizzy little missy
With a twinkle in her eye, bye bye
Bye bye, bye bye
