Hey, We're All Adults Here

And since we're discussing lyrics to songs we don't normally assume have then, please enjoy -- via Albert Brooks -- the long supressed text to one of the great classical war horses, Maurice Ravel's Bolero.

I should add that when Bolero made it's concert premier, at the Paris Opéra on November 22, 1928, the level of arousal (for reasons that should be obvious) was so high that the woodwind section had to be roped off from the rest of the orchestra.

I'm pretty sure I've posted this before, but I'm so busy this week I can't think straight.

Serious new posting resumes next week, cross my heart.

You hear Bolero, I hear The Gamesters of Triskelion... (and look around for the girl with the green hair)

Let's call the whole thing off.
