Another Question

Okay... I'm drunk (a little), mildly retarded (again... a little), or just plain clueless (if I knew what that meant, I might agree to it).

Someone mentioned MacArthur Park today, and I can't make it any further in the lyrics than:

Spring was never waiting for us, girl,

it ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance,

Between the parted pages that were pressed,

A love hot fevered like a striped pair of pants,

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark, all the sweet, green
icing flowing down.

Someone left the cake out in the rain,

I don't think I could take it, `cause it took so long to bake

And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no!

Italics added by me

Huh? What the Sam Frickin' Hell is that supposed to mean? "A love hot fevered like a striped pair of pants..."

And who left the birthday party so damn early that they forgot the cake?

I'm all cornfused...

Looks like the song was voted the worst song of all time at this website:

It makes perfect sense if you're on LSD... :-)

Words from D "you can't have your cake and eat it too!" ;) Was that on the jukebox? LOL

Dude... think about it... you... in a pair of striped pants? How hot would that be? and what's not to love? The Ladies would be ALLL over you. Try it next time you go to Fritz's, qnd let me know how it goes...

I'm with RSM! Make sure they're tight striped pants. I want to see the pictures!

As long as they aren't orange............

Tight striped pants and a tight black spandex t-shirt that is too small in the arms! That's the ticket!

Do NOT try to make sense of MacArthur Park.

I mean it.

You will only damage yourself.

Love the pants and spandex idea, but you should include the matching scarf around your neck to complete the ensemble!

So which version do you prefer? The original Richard Harris spoken version. Or the disco-laden Donna Summer version?
