"Message Oblique Speech" as written by Billy Mackenzie and Alan Peter Rankine....
Hypothermic ice cubes are melting down
With prisoners from BSA and the Royal Crown
A fertilising agent for the parasitic fool
Well he drinks double hernias
Spits out wooden stools
A European throwback is spasmodicular
If you can't do no good then sucker don't you do no harm

Message oblique speech
We're still working on him
Message oblique speech
We thought of everything

Graphically perfect
Totally intact
On display credential
He said shouted, fact:
All important rubbish made to publish made to last
All important rubbish made to publish made to last

When I came around I asked if you could dance
(woo) when I came around, I asked if you could dance..(woo)
Anesthetists don't dance
They have balls with masks in France
Place your bets on ego
Won't someone fire me
Curl darling I'm on K hopeless inspire me
A million things to the individuals a million things
A million things to the million singular eyes has everything

Message oblique speech
We're still working on him
Message oblique speech
We thought of everything

Graphically perfect
Totally intact
On display credential
He said shouted, fact:
All important rubbish made to publish made to last
All important rubbish made to publish made to last

Message oblique speech
We're still working on him
Message oblique speech
We thought of everything

Graphically perfect
Totally intact
On display credential
He said shouted, fact:
All important rubbish made to publish made to last
All important rubbish made to publish made to last

Message oblique speech
We're still working on him
Message oblique speech
We thought of everything

Message oblique speech
We're still working on him
Message oblique speech
We thought of everything

    General CommentI think the second line of this song is 'With prisoners from BSA and they're on the prowl'.

    General CommentI'm sure that Billy sings 'Where's the wording on him?' on each of the three occasions when the full chorus is sung; it's only at the end, in the twice repeated muffled vocals that he sings 'We're still working on him'.

    General CommentAlso, I think 'On display credential He said shouted, fact:' is quite wrong. Surely it's 'On display credentials, essentials and fact'.
