"Odorono" as written by and Peter Townshend....
She sang the best she'd ever sang
She couldn't ever sing any better
But Mister Davidson never rang
She knew he would forget her

She'd seen him there
And put herself to ransom
He had stared
He really was quite handsome

She had really looked her best
She couldn't ever look any better
But she knew she'd failed the test
She knew he would forget her

Triumphant was the way she felt
As she acknowledged the applause
Triumphant was the way she'd felt
When she saw him at the dressing room door

She was happier than she'd ever been
As he praised her for her grace
But his expression changed, she had seen
As he leant to kiss her face

It ended there
He claimed a late appointment
She quickly turned
To hide her disappointment

She ripped her glittering gown
Couldn't face another show, no
Her deodorant had let her down
She should have used Odorono

It's smooth sailing with the highly successful sound
Of wonderful Radio London!

    General CommentI think the Who Sell Out is pure genius, what a brilliant idea to do a concept album that sounds like a radio station without the DJ of course..................It's a bit like listening to music on You Tube these days in a way...............

    Odorono is a sad little song about the girl who looses out on the man of her dreams due to her poor choice of deodorant....I love the way it starts with that little burst of Carry On Film style music then straight into that plaintive descending riff...................Classic Pete Townshend!!!!
