"the birds in your garden" as written by Jarvis Branson Cocker, Stephen Patrick Mackey, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle and Mark Andrew Webber....
It's six o'clock, the birds are singing.
I'm wide awake whilst you're still fast asleep.
I went outside, into your garden.
The sun was bright & the air was cool And as I stood there listening
Well the birds in your garden
They all started singing this
Song
"Take her now. Don't be scared, it's alright.
Oh, come on, touch her inside.
It's a crime against nature - she's been waiting all night.
Come on, hold her, & kiss her & tell her you care
If you wait 'til tomorrow she'll no longer be there.
Come on & give it to her.
You know it's now or never."
Yeah, the birds in your garden have all started singing this
Song.

My father never told me about the birds & the bees.
And I guess I never realised that I would ever meet birds as
Beautiful as these.
I came inside, climbed to your bedroom.
I kissed your eyes awake & then I did what I knew was only
Natural.
And then the birds in your garden, they all started singing
This song
"Take her now. Don't be scared, it's alright.
Oh, come on, touch her inside.
It's a crime against nature - she's been waiting all night.
Come on, hold her, & kiss her & tell her you care
If you wait 'til tomorrow she'll no longer be there.
Come on & give it to her. You know it's now or never."
Yeah, the birds in your garden have all started singing this
Song.
Yeah, the birds in your garden, they taught me the words to
This song.

    General CommentJarvis' comments:
    Birds in Your Garden was one of the first songs we wrote for this record, and in terms of its style it's probably quite similar to the stuff that we wrote when we very first started out. And the idea of it is - it's kind of fitting that it's one of the first ones we wrote - because the idea of it is that somebody's staying at his lover's house but for some reason or other he can't get it together to, erm... shag her. And goes out into the garden in the morning and all the birds say to him, "c'mon, get in there". And it's about, for some reason he's unable to respond to a natural urge, the urge to 'get in there', the urge to procreate or whatever. He's so out of touch with himself that it's there for him on a plate but he's too hung up on some idea in his head that he can't do it. I just liked the idea of birds, which are supposed to be nice sweet creatures, kind of acting in a slightly yobbish way, and saying "get in there my son". I thought it was quite a nice idea.

    General CommentReally nice song, very relaxing. I specially like this phrase:
    "My father never told me about the birds & the bees.
    And I guess I never realised that I would ever meet birds as
    beautiful as these."

    General CommentIt's not so often that the angel on your shoulder actually encourages you to hump your girlfriend. Usually this kind of thing is discouraged, but hey. It's British and I'm not, so who am I to judge?

    General Comment" Oh, come on, touch her inside. "
    Beautiful line, could sound sleazy but it doesn't.

    General Comment"I kissed your eyes awake" - that is so beautiful.
    I love this song.
    I love that it's about se, but it isn't sleazy pervert sex. It's love (or near enough) and it's really, really beautiful. Well, I think it's beautiful anyway.♥

    General CommentAhhhh....I love this song. It makes me happy. Where are the comments, everyone? Pulp rules, and this is the ultimate #1 jam of the summer!!!

    It's obviously about this dude, who went to bed with this girl, but doesnt's do her, but she wants him to, and his mind (the birds) are telling him so. And he does. Her, I mean.
