B: I got pains.
They’re multiplyin’.
And I’m losin’ control.
‘Cause the tasin’
you’re supplyin’,
it’s electrifyin’!

G: You better dumb down,
’cause I need a fool.
and my eyes are set on you.
You better dumb down;
you better not learn
to my heart just be a fool.

B: Nothin’ left, nothin’ left for me to know.

Both: You’re the one that I tase.
(you are the one i tase), o,o, oo, honey.
The one that I fry.
(you are the one i fry fry), o,o,oo, honey.
The one that I shock
(you are the one i shock shock), o,o, ooooo
The one idiot.
Oh, yes idiot…

Leading actors could be JC, Spin, Malt, FriscoJohn, LadyLala, Georgia…
I would be in the audience, making sure no one learns..

I hope the BG recovered by now. I can imagine him singing to the tune and remembering the goofy Muammar, all the while with tears shedding down his cheeks…

“It won’t be easy
You’ll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your blog!
After all that I’ve done
You won’t believe me.

All you will see
Is a man you once knew
Although he’s dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen
I had to change
Couldn’t stay all my life chased by rebels.
Looking out of the drain pipe
Staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom (fighters)
Running around trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it too.

Don’t cry for me Mr. Basler
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don’t keep your distance

And as for fortune and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world
They were all I desired
They are illusions
They’re not the solutions
They promise to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and origami!

Don’t cry for me Mr. Basler

Don’t cry for me Mr. Basler!
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don’t keep your distance

Have I said too much?
There’s nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do
Is look at me to know
That every word is true.”
