Games forum. Don't take seriously. emoticon

How many songs can you think of which play games with logic:

1. "Your so vain, you probably think this song is about you."

Well, it IS about him. So the logical answer- not really very vain at all.

2. (Sounds of Silence) - "I was 21 years when I wrote this song, I'm 22 now, but I won't be for long. "

So, he's 21 years (old) when he wrote the song , which includes the lyric "I'm 22 now" . Which is it, Paul?

3. Blowin in the wind.

"How many roads must a man walk down, before you can call him a man."

Well, you just called him  a man. So , zero?

4. (Abba, lay all your love on me) " You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice. Well now it isn't true. "

The product of a late night and a good helping of LSD ................... I presume.?



I think I'm sophisticated
'Cos I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying
Till they're walking round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages
in the zoo man
'Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an ape man
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'Cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man
I'm an ape man I'm a King Kong man I'm ape ape man
I'm an ape man
'Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky
compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies
I am an ape man
In man's evolution he has created the cities and
the motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance
and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
'Cos the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man
I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man
I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
'Cos the air pollution is
fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man
Come and love me, be my ape man girl
And we will be so happy in my ape man world
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
and we'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man.
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an ape man.

On that subject, the Bonzo Dog band did (covered) a good one " Ali Babas Camel"

You've heard of Ali Baba,
40 theives had he,
After waht we all want,
Lots of LSD.

(well, OK, LSD means money, and the song predates the drug...)

But still funny.

Or that classic of illogical state of mind from the Beatles which includes the following lyrics :-


I am the eggman
They are the eggmen
I am the walrus
Goo goo g' joob
G-goo goo g' joob
Goo goo g' goo
G-goo goo g' joob goo

Juba juba juba
Juba juba juba
Juba juba, juba juba
Juba juba



Now that's something you don't hear too often. emoticon

Don't know who this Paul is, but that's a lyric by the big-nosed bard of Barking.  

Back on topic, Alanis Morisette. Ironic.  Which seems to list lots of things that aren't at all ironic.

nooooooooooooooo!!

It's a Paul Simon song- "The Leaves that are Green" , from the album Sounds of Silence.

The Braggster just "borrowed" it.
