LEOPOLD ALCOCKS
by Jake Thackray

Leopold Alcocks, my distant relation,
Came to my flat for a brief visitation.
He's been here since February, damn and blast him
My nerves and my furniture may not outlast him.

Leopold Alcocks is accident prone.
He's lost my bath plug, he's ruptured my telephone.
My antirrhinums, my motorbike, my sofa
There isn't anything he can't trip over.

As he roams through my rooms, all my pussycats scatter.
My statuettes tremble, then plummet, then shatter.
My table lamps tumble with grim regularity.
My cut glass has crumbled and so has my charity.

Leopold Alcocks, an uncanny creature
He can't take tea without some misadventure:
He looks up from his teacup with a smirk on his features
And a slice of my porcelain between his dentures.

He's upset my goldfish, he's jinxed my wisteria
My budgie's gone broody, my tortoise has hysteria.
He cleans my teapots, my saucepans, with Brasso
And leaves chocolate fingerprints on my Picasso.

Leopold Alcocks never known to fail
Working his way through my frail Chippendale.
One blow from his thighs (which are fearsomely strong)
Would easily fracture the wing of a swan.

I brought home my bird for some Turkish moussaka
Up looms old Leopold I know when I'm knackered.
He spills the vino, the great eager beaver,
Drenching her jumpsuit and my joie de vivre.

Leopold Alcocks stirring my spleen
You are the grit in my life's vaseline.
A pox on you Alcocks! You've been here since Feb'ry
Go home and leave me alone with my debris.

So Leopold Alcocks, my distant relation,
Has gone away home after his visitation.
I glimpsed him waving bye-bye this last minute
Waving his hand with my doorknob still in it.

Azizi.........I can verify Sorch's record. She has actually done several times. For awhile we had a sort of informal contest going on around here and Sorch just flat smoked us. On one occasion she came in at a minute when I came back in two....actually less than that but the clock said two!

To get two or less you have to be there as soon as the thread pops up and it is helpful if you already have a second window open. I think Jeri has a two minute as well.....Sorch, did Jeri ever do a one?

Yes, Stilly, it's a long one. For heaven's sake, people, an "identify this song lyric" puzzle is not meant to be done with search engines!   It's done by personally knowing and remembering the song. That's the whole point. Otherwise it would just be an exercise in the ability to tap on a computer keyboard...a completely meaningless exercise, in other words, worthy of a robot or a moderately well-trained monkey, not a human being.

I want to hear from people who KNOW what song it is from their own personal experience and their own memory. They might then have something interesting to say about the song, about the singer, when they first heard it, and so on.

To hell with Google and Metacrawler. What do YOU remember?

"What do YOU remember?"

I recall falling asleep watching an Andy Warhol movie in the East Village. When I awoke, the theatre was empty and the dobermans had been turned loose. It wasn't until 4:37 AM when they discovered me and attacked. One had my stomach and its teeth were ripping at my intestines. Another mercifully got my throat and tore through my windpipe. My life flashed before my eyes, and it struck me that it wasn't my life. Frankly, LH, I don't remember jacksh#t about it. That's why I ain't tellin'.

Does anyone else besides me expect the words "don't give a damn" after a person says "Frankly I don't"?

And what about expecting someone to say "smile" after they say "When you say my name?"

You can figure out from this what kind of books I used to love to read.

And Peace, really great imagery and all. If you aren't a writer, you should be one.

Sounds like you're cribbing liner notes from Bob Dylan albums again, Peace or maybe from the notes to "Tarantula". ;-) I love spinning out stuff like that. It's a snap, once you get the rythm of the thoughts rolling.

I used to do it all the time, matter of fact.

Azizi, here are some very possible endings for those expressions:

"Frankly, I don't believe a word of it."

"Frankly, I don't think that fellow is coming back."

"Frankly, I think this position is lost." etc....

"When you say my name, say it right."

"When you say my name, put 'mister' in front of it."

For every cliche there are an infinite number of good alternatives.

You're both wrong. After having wisely decided that both Jeri's record of a two minutes delay response with a link and Bert's record of a zero minutes delay response without a link are unbeatable (Ed's four minutes for complete lyrics with line breaks are also not bad but perhaps beatable), Joe goes for the remaining records. And what you have seen here, is the fastest two links response ever (yet!).

Wolfgang ...


I can't remeber of I posted the lyrics or gave Mudcat search details.

But I still claim the record for a correct response WITHIN a minute.

I understand, Stilly. This thread is for songs people remember, however, not search engine searches. I'm sure I will pick one you do remember fairly soon.

Al Stewart's music possesses many of the virtues of classical music. It's tuneful, complex, highly intelligent, full of cultural and historical aspects, often orchestral, extremely sophisticated stuff, right from the earliest recordings up to the present day. In fact, I'd say he carved out a specific niche all his own in songwriting that one one else has ever rivalled or even approached. One could say the same of many other artists...only a different niche, that's all.

At the specific thing he does, Al Stewart is the best.

So what's the answer for song lyric #2? From reading the posts,
I figured out that the artist is Al Stewart{other wise known,
at least on this thread, as "AS"

But what song did that lyric come from, and who the heck is Al Stewart? From which genre of music is he [or is it a group?].

I guess I'll have to google if I really want to know. But it seems to me that this thread should clearly provide that information.

Remember, we all aren't from the same cultures.

I think it would be helpful if after the correct answer is given, the featured lyric is repeated and the specific song, and the artist/group who performed it {but maybe there are a number of artists/groups-what happens then?}

And-because it adds to the fun- I also would suggest that the name of the person who won that "round" and the time it took him or her to identify that lyric be noted on that same post with the information about the lyrics.

Again, I'm not playing this game. I'm just trying to keep 'score'.

We all take some things too seriously, Azizi... ;-) And thus are our various hangups...or our deepest loves and loyalties...revealed.

Al Stewart is a brilliant songwriter who hails from England. He began recording in the late 60's and is still performing. His songs are unlike anyone else's at all, and they reflect a very keen mind, combined with a very keen grasp of history and western culture. His early albums were all on the most personal of themes (his love life, mostly)...perhaps a bit too self-revealing...and they seem to have centered around his relationship with a young Englishwoman named Mandi. When he broke up with her, around 1969-70, he seems to have gone through a real personal crisis...which resulted in him virtually abandoning the personal revealing lyrics and themes altogether, and instead writing a series of remarkable songs on things like Nostradamus, the French Revolution, the history of England and much of Europe, the early days of aviation, and various philosophical takes on the decline of western civilization and the developing world crisis that accompanies it.

Heavy stuff, to be sure, and brilliantly written. In fact, you have to hear some of those songs to believe it. A couple of them are what I would call absolute masterpieces....particularly the incredible "Roads To Moscow", an epic about the Russian-German conflict in WWII that could well serve as a permanent Russian national anthem, if it translated well...and if they needed a new one (which they evidently don't).

That's perfectly all right, Snuffy. We all fail to register on our radar things that other people are quite familiar with and may even take for granted.

I may start a thread on Al Stewart, since this thread is getting a bit convoluted and scattered at this point.

You probably came across "Year of the Cat" in 1976 and after, if nothing else. It got a lot of radio play then and later.

He was born in 1945 so I guess, from what you say, that he's only a couple of years older than you.
