Another Song

Me again, with another song.
This one's to the tune of a Meat Loaf song called "Priscilla", a rather excellent little song which I would highly recommend, but which I have unfortunately spoilt (or improved, depending on how you look at it) for myself forever, as every time it comes onto my MP3 I find myself singing the words to "Oscar, Oh, Oscar" instead....

You like ridin’ around in a hansom cab
All round good old London town
You always crimp your hair so well
But the public just doesn’t understand
Hangin’ around with all the big names
With genius all aglow
Flamboyant and slightly untidy in dress
And there’s nothin’ that you don’t know.

Oscar, oh, Oscar
You’re twenty-eight and still acting like a kid
Oscar, oh, Oscar
Your disciples love you for what you did.

High of class, wit sharper than glass
Never one for skippin’ lunch
You put your hand on the knees of the boys
And some absinthe in the punch
Spent years talking art, being bizarre
Daydreaming at Oxford schools
And now you know that preachin’ art
Is as easy as breaking as the rules.

Oscar, oh, Oscar
You’re thirty-two and still acting like a kid
Oscar, oh, Oscar
Your disciples love you for what you did.

Starting an artistic revolution
Causing a stir with strange costumes
Just you and your stories
Daydreamin’ in aesthetic rooms.

Strong boys break the records
And rich boys break their nails
Smart boys know nothing of art
And some boys always fail
Bad little boys grow up to be good
And good boys finish last
But dandiacal boys don’t care how they grow up
As long as they find fame fast....

Oscar, oh, Oscar
You’re thirty-four and still acting like a kid
Oscar, oh, Oscar
Your disciples love you for what you did
Oscar, oh, Oscar
You’re thirty-eight and still acting like a kid
Oscar, oh, Oscar
Your disciples love you for what you did....
