"Surgeon's Girl" as written by and Newman Gilbert....
Un-deux-trois-go!

Sitting in a surgeon's world, a surgeon's will
A surgeon's girl with me
Standing on a river bed, where weeds can be
I'm on my knee, to you
Well, I've seen you in glossy mags
Glossy mags
Glossy mags
I've seen you in the glossy mags
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

I

Said you weren't a tuna fish, put in a tin
They're very big, ha-ha
I've seen in glossy mags
Glossy mags
Glossy mags
I've seen you in the glossy mags
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane
Go insane, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

Go insane, go insane
Go insane, go insane, me!

    My InterpretationLike "Brazil", a swipe at juvenile romance, here leaning towards the element of fantasy and celebrity obsession, namely of dating a glossy, somewhat manufactured (like canned tuna!) person, be they created by media or imagination. The jabber of the chorus only adds to the "what a moron our protagonist is" subtext. Snotty in the best way possible.

    General CommentP.S. The production is wonderfully bizarre, in particular the layered shouts and off-kilter echo-slathered toms. The live version on The Scottish Play is unrecognisable, yet still brilliant.
