"Metal Mickey" was written by Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson....







Well she's show showing it off then

The glitter in her lovely eyes

Show show showing it off then

And all the people shake their money in time

She sells heart she sells meat

Oh dad she's driving me mad come see



We shake shake shake to the trumpet

And through the slippery city we ride

Skyline swine on the circuit

Where all the people shake their money in time



She sells heart she sells meat

Oh dad she's driving me mad, come see

    General CommentIn the live version, they end the song with Brett howling "Oh ho ho"'s in the end. I wish that they had done that in the studio version as well.

    Btw, thanks for mentioning Katie Jane Garside and Daisy Chainsaw, they sound interesting.

    General CommentHas to be one of the finest pop songs. The guitar noise are very fine and subtle and melodic.
