"Scissor Man" as written by and Andy Partridge....
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Putting end to evil doers games
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Maybe you are in his book of names
Maybe you are in his book of names

Na, na, naw
Da, da, da na, na, na, naw

So be kind and helpful to your mother
Just think twice before you try to steal
When he cuts with sticky silver snippers
You may find the wounds'll never heal

All self made bad boys
If you refuse to believe he exist
You won't be frightened when you find out
You're on his list
You're on his list
You're on his list

Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Putting end to evil doers games
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Maybe you are in his book of names
Maybe you are in his book of names

Na, na, naw
Da, da, da na, na, na, naw

So be good and never poison people
Just think twice before the deed is done
When you wake up guilty in the morning
You may find important pieces gone

All self made bad boys
If you refuse to believe he exist
You won't be frightened when you find out
You're on his list
You're on his list
You're on his list

Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Putting end to evil doers games
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Maybe you are in his book of names
Maybe you are in his book of names

Na, na, naw
Da, da, da na, na, na, naw

All self made bad boys
If you refuse to believe he exist
You won't be frightened when you find out
You're on his list
You're on his list
You're on his list

Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Putting end to evil doers games
Snipping, snipping, snipping goes the scissor man
Maybe you are in his book of names
Maybe you are in his book of names

Na, na, naw
Da, da, da na, na, na, naw
Na, na, naw
Da, da, da na, na, na, naw

Snipping, snipping, oh snipping, snipping, snip,
Snip, snip, snip, snip
Snipping, snipping, snipping

    Song MeaningIt's to do with the downright sinister German childrens book Struwwelpeter, in which a scissor wielding man cuts off a childs thumbs because he sucks them too much. Quote from wikipedia "In Die Geschichte vom Daumenlutscher (The Story of Little Suck-a-Thumb), a mother warns her son not to suck his thumbs. However, when she goes out of the house he resumes his thumb sucking, until a roving tailor appears and cuts off his thumbs with giant scissors." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    General Commentseems to be about all those characters invented and believed in in youth, like Santa or the Tooth Fairy and that kind of thing, though it may be a metaphor, maybe for karma, I dunno, great song.
