CAN BLUE MEN SING THE WHITES?
(Vivian Stanshall)

I was lying in my bed, pull the silken sheets up tight
I gotta keep me strength up, gotta do a show tonight.
I have a sip of coffee while I'm taking in the news,
Don't need to have a shave, cos' I gotta sing the blues

Then I think I'll get a massage, maybe, lose a little fat,
So I have to go downtown in me brand-new Cadillac,
My valet comes and dressed me, I light a big cigar,
Cos' I like to look like Himmler when I'm riding in my car.

Can blue men sing the whites?
Or are they hypocrites for singing: Whooo ooo oooh,

And now it's getting near the time I gotta make the scene,
I change outta me dark-grey mohair suit, pull on my dirty jeans,
The band comes round to pick me up, I holler: "Hang on boys,
I gotta mess me hair up if I'm gonna make some noise."

Can blue men sing the whites?
or are they hypocrites for singing

O Lordy,
In dem cotton fields,
O Mama,
Somebody help me,
Tell me like it was,
Bugga-boo, buggaaah-whoo-oo

Bonzo Dog Band, if I recall correctly...which I often don't. I may still have their 1970 record, "Keynsham." Tubas in the moonlight...

Aloha,
Mark

Last line of the second verse.
I thought it was:

" 'Cos I like to look like Nimrod when I'm driving in my car"

Himmler!? Somebody with Nazis on the brain....
