Peanuts

The Internet problem is about to be solved in my home, so there will in all likelihood be an increase in postings from here.

In the meantime, this song was playing on 202.fm (a internet rock station) while I was responding to yet another goofball posting by our adversary GodofBiscuits. The conjunction of the song with viewing his site produced a fit of convulsive mirth.

I submit that we re-christen that particular gentle GOD OF PEANUTS!!!

The Police - Peanuts Lyrics

It's all a game
You're not the same
Your famous name
The price of fame

Oh no
Try to liberate me
I said oh no
Stay and irritate me
I said oh no
Try to elevate me
I said oh no
Just a fallen hero

Don't wanna hear about the drugs you're taking
Don't wanna read about the love you're making
Don't wanna hear about the life you're faking
Don't wanna read about the muck they're raking

You sang your song
For much too long
The songs they're wrong
The bread has gone

Oh no
Try to liberate me
I said oh no
Stay and irritate me
I said oh no
Try to elevate me
I said oh no
Just a fallen hero

Don't wanna hear about the drugs you're taking
Don't wanna read about the love you're making
Don't wanna hear about the life you're faking
Don't wanna read about the muck they're raking

It's all a game
You're not the same
Your famous name
The price of fame

Oh no
Try to liberate me
I said oh no
Stay and irritate me
I said oh no
Try to elevate me
I said oh no
Just a fallen hero
[Oh, you're just a fallen hero]

Don't wanna hear about the drugs you're taking
Don't wanna read about the love you're making
Don't wanna hear about the life you're faking
Don't wanna read about the muck they're raking

Don't wanna find out what you've been taking
Don't wanna read about the love you're making
Don't wanna hear about the life you're faking
Don't wanna read about the muck they're raking

Don't wanna find out what you've been taking
Don't wanna read about the love you're making
Don't wanna hear about the life you're faking
Don't wanna read about the muck they're raking

Peanuts, peanuts
Peanuts

(Ad lib)Oh, no, no
Oh, no, no
Oh, no, no
Oh, no, no
Oh, no, no
Oh


From Sting and the Police's first and best album, Outlandos D'Amour. A great song, from back in the days before Sting became pretentious and self-important.
