A gentleman's most private parts

Normally a testicle as the old saying - kick em in the goolies

Gee Roy - have you no shame?

Thanks a bunch, esp. to Paul!

More slang... (I'm American, and British slang mystifies me) - What's a goolie?

Cheers,
Michael

Yodelling up the canyon is slang for cunnilingus.

Watford Gap services was called the Blue Boar,which was the name of the company that owned it.

The city's like a goolie in a groupie's stagnant womb
Spaghetti junction's target, in the vinegar strokes of doom.

Cheers Paul

Hiya matey and fellow Roy fan.

Difficult to judge listening to the track on the lp (Bullinamingvase) - must be my aging hearing, but if you go to Roy's web site i.e. www.royharper.co.uk as suggested by Phil, and submit an e-mail to info@royharper.co.uk that might help. I've tried finding the lyrics via google etc but to no avale. This may be due to the problems Roy had when he first released the track - ending up as a court case if i'm not mistaken, taken out by the owners of Watford Gap service station.

Anyway, best of luck mate!

Have you checked Roy Harper's website? I think there's a link to song lyrics, though I haven't checked in for a couple years.

I'm missing a couple of lines... can you help? (And what is the meaning of "yodeling up the canyon is the dirty old blue boar"?

WATFORD GAP (Roy Harper)

Just about a mile from where the motorways all merge
You can view the national edifice, the monumental splurge
It's the lonesome traveler's rotgut or bacteria's revenge
The great plastic spectacular descendant of Stonehenge
The people come to worship on their death-defying wheels
Fancy dressed as shovels for their death-defying meals

CH: It's the Watford Gap, the Watford Gap
Plate of grease and a load of crap

At 1 a.m. on Sunday you can hear the boys declare
That the other team were fairies and the ref was Fred Astaire
It's Chopper Ronnie's fan club on their weekly pilgrimage
To stick the hero's boot in all the way from Stamford Bridge
And without a solid concrete burger no night is complete
Plastic cups of used bath water wash away defeat (CH)

The traffic jam is rattling like a five-mile cornered snake
With fuming pieces falling off and steaming in its wake
??????????
Spaghetti junction ????????
The countryside is ravaged like a syphilitic whore
And yodeling up the canyon is the dirty old blue boar (CH)


Cheers,
Michael
