Wait, every other ...what?!

It's been a while since a song in the charts has moved me enough for me to blog about it.

I last ranted about song lyrics here.

Recently DD and I had a long car journey and I was thrilled forced to listen to Radio One for most of the journey. During that time I was privileged to hear ALt J sing Every Other Freckle. I was so amazed by the bizarre lyrics that I assumed I had misheard them (after all I am old) but DD googled them on her clever mobile telephone and sure enough...

So without further ado, here are my thoughts on the song


 Every Other Freckle


Aaah >>open wide ladies and gentlemen because ...
I want to share your mouthful > you see! He's diving right in...
I want to do all the things your lungs do so well > such as breathe? OK then, continue breathing, I'm ok with that...
I’m gonna bed into you like a cat beds into a beanbag >This is where we start getting weird...you want to WHAT? I'm seeing that whole paw-kneading thing and I'm not sure my belly can take it to be honest...
Turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet >OK now we have passed through weird and out into freaksville, I can only hope I don't taste of Prawn Cocktail (sorry)

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
>hey

You’re the first and last of your kind >Fairly sure other humans exist and I'm not really sure if this is complimentary
(Hold me like an animal on top of her) >I rarely hold animals on top of me, I think you can get into trouble for that
I wanna be every lever you pull >all the boys say that
And all showers that shower you> Yeah OK I'm not into golden showers or water sports in general...
Gonna paw paw at you
Like a cat paws at my woollen jumper
>You seem a tiny bit cat obsessed - do you get out much?
Me, I’m in bin >hmmm
Ignore her worth, and some trivia

Hey!

Ooh, devour me
>yeah, but no
Aaah
Lou Lou, let the cover girls sing
Hey!

Do, do do do, do do do do
Do do do, do do do, do do do do, do do
Do, do do do, do do, do do, do do
Do do do, do do

All hand claps
Human claps
Let me be the wallpaper that papers up your room
>slightly odd, like a fly on the wall you mean? but thinner, more spread out?
I want to be every button you press >you are not really pressing my buttons so far, this might be the least romantic song I've heard since the last one
And all mouths that surround you > slobbery
Yes, I’m gonna roll around you > crushing
Like a cat rolls around the chrysanthemums >OK enough with the cat thing, maybe you just should get a cat?
I’m gonna kiss you like the sun browns you >hot kisses? best thing you've suggested yet

Hey!

Oh oh oh oh oh devour me
Oh oh oh oh oh oh devour me
Oh oh oh oh oh (Oh oh oh oh oh)
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (Oh oh oh oh oh)
If you really think that you can stomach me
> fairly sure I can't by this stage actually, sorry

Hey hey!

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
Freckle
>and we're done.
