"Baron Saturday" as written by and John Charles/may Alder....
Oh! baron Saturday
Sorrow, he'll show you games to play
He bends his mouth up to your ear
The words won't disappear
He'll take your eyes out for a ride
Through an eyeglass of tears it's not clear.

Oh! baron Saturday
White visions black, mister malady
'Neath a sky of milk
You're drinking silk
You've fast the runcible spoon
On satin plates
Young maidens wait
To be devoured in the glare of the moon.

Except for baron Saturday
Your life was cool
Good senses rule
Throw your life away.

Oh! baron Saturday
Let him steal your mind away
He'll show you the grave
Of someone who was saved
From living their life in a year
He'll show you the grave.
Of someone who was saved
From taking his life with a knife.

Except for baron Saturday
Your life was cool
Good senses rule
Throw your life away.

    General CommentBest song on the album. Got into the Pretties because Noel Gallagher mentioned writing a song like this for the new Oasis album.

    General Commentsame here, heard that the singer of kasabian recommended this song to noel. Absolutely love it. But does anybody know what it's about and what the entire album is about? im told it's the first rock opera/concept album ever.

    General CommentYeah, to understand this song, you'll have to listen to the whole album. It's the story of a guy who loves this girl, but when she dies he gets really depressed and cuts himself off from the world. Sort of similar to Pink Floyds "The Wall." This song in particular is sort of a metaphorical way of thinking for the main character. Baron Saturday comes and helps him keep from suicide (He'll show you the grave
    Of someone who was saved
    From living their life in a year
    He'll show you a grave
    Of someone who was saved
    From taking his life with a knife).

    But this only keeps him alive and he is unable to achieve happiness again.
