The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Pineapple Tuesday


Pineapple Tuesday
I'm standing here with my head in my hands
I put it there 'coz I'm tired
Drinking vodka and Gatorade
Swaying to the rhythm that the Gators made
Down by Beethoven Street staring at the passersby
Then there was you
Then there was you

Just keep driving
You know it's got to be someplace here
And I've got plenty of time
Oh, people round here just don't have no lane discipline
And then there was you
Then there is you


And I don't wanna let you go
I don't wanna let you go
But it's Tuesday

Been there, done that ( x 6 )

Chorus (x2)

Cult Of The Basement
If things seemed weird back in February 1989, when we made this baby, the Weird were going shopping on bikes. In a farmhouse in the dead of winter, in personal circumstances too bizarre and complex to relate, we set about making our "commercial suicide" album. For the first time, I felt, we had made an album that really sounded like us. This record does have personality. One of my favourites, this.

Edward's Closet
So you've got a CD player, have you? I've got a headache and an abiding dislike of expensive food crews in dumb baseball hats. I've been in Edward's Closet and he wasnt't in. "That JBC", they mutter at the bus-stop, "turned left at the light a Long Time Ago".

Western Family
For loonie completists only, for sure, though, if you listen through the muck, you'll see that we did our bit.

Millions of years ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Today the Galileo Space Probe orbits mighty planet Jupiter. The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy first appeared in June 1982 in the back room of the Black Lion in Northampton. They finally drank the bar dry in a small town in in Mallorca on the 20th August 1996

Is it a road song? Is it a love song? Is it a mushy title or what? I'm sorry, Jesus, every line is true. I never enjoyed vanilla as much in all my life. Watch carefully: Californian brainfried road-accident-from-outer-space guitar in the area! Source: Unconditional liner notes
