Mungo Jerry - Baby Jump

Quote:
She wears those micromini dresses
Hair hanging down her back
She wears those seethrough sweaters
She likes to wear her stockings black
And if I see her tonight
You can bet your life I'll attack


Er, no flowers and a romantic meal then, Mungo?

These lyrics should be familiar to all of you, but in printed form they don't seem like something you'd associate with the act that made them famous.

Anywhere, I will find you,
Don’t care where, look behind you,
I’ll be there, following you around.

Rain or shine you won’t shake me,
I don’t mind where you take me,
Spend my time, following you around.

Now listen, don’t you know,
Hiding from me does no good,
Wherever you may go
I’ll be in the neighbourhood.

If you fly, I will follow,
I don’t care about tomorrow,
Long as I’m — following you around,
get my kicks following you around.


Not placed it yet?

I had to look them up. I was totally barking up the wrong tree! That is a surprise.

I've added a link for anyone who recognises the words but can't quite place them.

I'm sure Ray Davies would justify these words by saying he was writing in character, but had, say, Gary Glitter sang them...

Art Lover

Sunday afternoon there's something special
It's just like another world
Jogging in the park is my excuse
To look at all the little girls

I'm not a flasher in a rain coat
I'm not a dirty old man
I'm not gonna snatch you from your mother

I'm an art lover, come to daddy
Ah, come to daddy, come to daddy

Pretty little legs, I want to draw them
Like a Degas ballerina
Pure white skin, like porcelain
She's a work of art and I should know

I'm an art lover, come to daddy
And I'll give you some spangles

Little girl, don't notice me
Watching, as she innocently plays
She can't see me staring at her
Because I'm always wearing shades

She feeds the ducks, looks at the flowers
I follow her around for hours and hours
I'd take her home, but that could never be
She's just a substitute for what's been taken from me

Ah, come to daddy, come on

Sunday afternoon can't last forever
Wish I could take you home
So, come on, give us a smile
Before you vanish out of view

I've learned to appreciate you
The way art lovers do
And I only want to look at you
