The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Cute Submarines

Lyrics

Cute Submarines
They know where the spaceships are going to be landing
they make people happy and not sad.
Swimming in an ad for advanced engineering from germany
Their on board outboard is so advanced it's raving mad
like, they can make their own BLEEPS

People like the way they're smart but not too scarey
They're helpful too and they're serving in the military
Or you can find them dying in a pool of filth in a mall on the prairie
doing tricks for fish for apes to watch for free

oh god it's just a little bit like those dismal conversations
where people say there can't be a god or he would not let this suffering be
now wait a minute I've seen a Flipper kill a fish with a bolt of pure sound
he jumped up grinning and he didn't look so cute to me

No Walt Disney
in the sea

and it's no good trying to get up behind them
they'll soon get away when you wants to find them
get used to cute submarines

No Walt Disney
in the sea

and here come the little girls with the candles on their heads
I can't believe you could do this
get used to cute submarines

Illuminate
New JBC lp duly completed in secure Northampton location. 1994 live line-up stumbled through a series of tunes and such under Butcher's direction, aided and abetted by a number of the usual suspects; Alex Lee on guitar, Alex Green on saxes, that sort of thing.

Insight

The Butcher Says..
"Gee Flip! Will you really let me hold it?"... Dolphins descended from cows... enraged Italian motorists... New Age psychobabble. All in 3 minutes 45 seconds.
