Default What should the "new song" first performed at the Londom Palladium be called?

sorry that title is really long.

please vote for what you think it should be called.

the song goes like

"you can hold her hand
and show her how you cry
explain to her your weakness so she understands
and then roll over and die.

You can brave decisions
before you crumble up inside
spend your life asking everyone else's permission
and then run away and hide.

You can sit on chimneys,
put some fire up your áss
dont even know what youre doing or waiting for
but if anyone should ask:

Tell them i've been cooking cocunut skins
and we've been hanging out
Tell them god just dropped by to forgive our sins
and relieve us our doubt

hallahallahallawww
hallahallahallawww
hallahallahallahalla
hallawwwhallawwawwawww
hallahallahallawww

you can hold her eggs
cause her basket has a hole
you can lie between her legs and go looking for;
tell her youre searching for your soul

you can wait for ages
and watch her compost turn to coals
time is contageous, everybody's getting old

Well you can sit on chimneys
Put some fire up your ass
Dont even know what youre doing or waiting for
But if anyone should ask:

Tell them i've been cooking cocunut skins
and we've been hanging out
Just tell them god just dropped by to forgive our sins
and relieve us our doubt.

Hallawhallawhallaw
hallawhallawhallaw
hallawhallawhall
awawwawwawaww
hallawhallawhallaww

hallawhallawhallaaaaw
hallaawhallaawhallaw
hallallaawwlalawlawwlawwlawwlaww
hallahallahlawww"

You forgot to put "I don't give a toss, it's not important" as a voting parameter.

In all fairness, it doesn't really achieve much, voting on titles for songs that we don't get to title.
Eventually he'll introduce the song before he plays it, and we can all go back to bed.

NO! I refuse to take part in this so-called "having a laugh", I demand that we have very serious threads about things that I deem to have a silliness factor of less then thirty eight. Otherwise I'm crackin' skulls.

BAH!!!! I have only just realised that it was first performed at the Palladium! I was at the gig and was pretty confused by the song........I ****in' love it, though, i think he needs to do a bit of work on it....i.e. deciding what he's going to do with accomp.

I don't know which is worse, the fact that you did it, or the fact that anyone cares that you did it.

Glad you liked it, Timster!

I'd hoped you'd get a lil' kick outta that. Seemed like something you might do.
