Samuel’s Footy Tips Results Shooting

Samuel’s Musician Of The…Fortnight?

April 17th, 2007 at 01:10am

I think I’ve missed two weeks of Musician(s) Of The Week Awards, so seeing as it is the 2nd birthday of Samuel’s Blog today I might as well have a Musician Of The Fortnight Award, make it something a bit out of the ordinary, add a video clip, and award it to “The Cat”. Originally a dream sequence on the British television comedy Red Dwarf, Danny John-Jules (who played “The Cat” on the aforementioned show and was lead singer/dancer in the video) took the song “Tongue Tied”, rearranged it, and released it (under the name “The Cat”) as a single in 1993, it reached number 17 on the UK Charts. That being said, the dream sequence in Red Dwarf (and the full length video clip on the DVDs) has ensured that the original version is much more well known.

The lyrics are below, but the video clip is well worth watching first.

When I saw you for the first time (first time)
My knees began to quiver (quiver)
And I got a funny feeling (feeling)
In my kidneys and my liver (digestive system baby)
My hands they started shakin’ (shakin’)
And my heart began a-thumpin’ (boom, boom, boom)
My breakfast left my body (huey, huey, huey)
Now darling tell me something

Why do you make me tongue tied (tongue tied)
tongue tied
Whenever you are near me? (near me)
Tied tongue (tied tongue)
Tied tongue (tied tongue)
Whenever you’re in town (In town)
You make me feel a clown, girl

Yes, you make me tongue-tongue (tied-tied)
tongue tied
Why can’t I tell you clearly? (clearly)
Tied-tied, tongue-tongue (tongue tied, tongue tied)
Whenever you’re around
(Boo-dah-bah-bow)

I saw you ‘cross the dance floor (dancin’)
I thought of birds and bees (reproductive system baby)
But when I tried to speak to ya (talk, talk)
My tongue unravelled to my knees (flippety-flippety-flop)
I tried to say “I love you” (love you)
But it came out kind of wrong, girl (wrong girl)
It sounded like “Nunubididoo” (tongue tied)
Nuh-mur-nuh-murh-ni-nong-nurl

That’s ’cause you make me tongue tied (tongue tied)
tongue tied
Whenever you are near me (near me)
I’m nurmy-murmy (nurmy-murmy)
Murmy-nurmy (nurmy-murmy)
Whenever you’re in town (in town)
My trousers they go brown, girl

Yes, you make me nongy-nangy (nangy-nongy)
tongue tied
Why can’t I tell you clearly? (clearly)
Be-dobby-durgle (dobby-durgle)
Tongue tied (tongue tied)
Whenever you’re around
(Boo-dah-bah-bow)

Oh, I’m beggin’ on my knees
Sweet, sweet darling, listen please
Understand me when I say
Gedurble-diggle-doggle-niggle-foggle-nibble-nay

I’m trying to say I’m tongue tied (tongue tied)
tongue tied
Whenever you are near me (really)
I’m nurmy-murmy (nurmy-murmy)
Murmy-nurmy (murmy-nurmy)
Whenever you’re in town (in town)
I drool so much I drown, girl

Yes, you make me nongy-nangy (nangy-nongy)
ningy-nongy
Why can’t I tell you clearly (clearly)
Ge-dobby-durgle (dobby-durgle)
Durgle-dobby (durgle-dobby)
Whenever you’re around (around)
Whenever you’re around, girl
