Why is Alison Goldfrapp smiling?



Because she knows what the lyrics to Clowns really are. You thought the speculation on "Only clowns that play with dull balloons" was odd? I refer you to the real lyrics below - which are barking mad! - as transcribed from the CD booklet by the lovely Countpopula. An ode to glamour models perhaps?

Only clowns would play with those balloons
What'd ya wanna look like Barbie for?
Dear oh Lord, it's easy


Roasting, roasting, roast indeed, mahogany
Titties that live on on and on, on and on

Only clowns would play with those balloons
What'd ya wanna look like Barbie for?
Passive when I'm in record day & night
I'm watching you

The bitch is probably smiling because she pulled that stick she's holding out of her ass.

How funny! And to think that when I first saw the title, I was wondering how could she incorporate our current administration into the song...
