Xtc – The Rotary lyrics
Thanks to Erich Sellheim
I'm warning you
I'm warning you now
Look out people as it's the holy cow
It's the rotary
I told you 'bout the spinning top
And that's a dance you gotta drop
Because the rotary is in
The rotary, the rotary
The dance you've got to top is the brand-new spinning top
That's out, this is the rotary
This is a thing that's definitely gonna make Captain Beefheart
And His Magic Band look bad
They thought they had it with the "blimp"
Well I'm talking to you about the rotary
People will be coming, will be twirling, twirling, twirling, twirling
You can jump it, I can jump it
Everybody can jump it
Grab an armadillo, grab your husband, grab anybody
The rotary, the rotary, oh, the rotary
It's the thing that's for me and you
Ooh, ooh, the rotary
I can see the precision
They're lining up, falling over
They're going crazy
They can't get enough of the rotary
Turning, turning, turning, turning...
You're burning, burning, burning...
With the rotary, ooh
I shouldn't want you to get this confused with any other dance craze
Because this is the one
Oh, the rotary
You'll be burning all your clothes
And you'll be burning all of your jewellery
You will be the rotary
It's nothing like anarchy
It's, it's the rotary
The rotary, the rotary...
Rotary, the rotary
You'll want to do it, do it with me
You'll want to do it, you can do it for free
Go on Terry, play the rotary
How do you think he got the second half of his name?
Terry is the last part of Rotary
Drum it up, drum it up...
