Benny was the bouncer at the palais de dance
Hed slash your grannys face up given half a chance.
Hed sell you back the pieces, all for less than half a quid
He thought he was the meanest-
Until he met with savage sid.

Now sidney was a greaser with some nasty roots
He poured a pint of guinness over bennys boots
Benny looked at sidney:
Sidney stared right back in his eye.
Sidney chose a switchblade
And benny got a cold meat pie.
Oh! what a terrible sight,
Much to the peoples delight.
One hell of a fight.

Sidney grabbed a hatchet, buried it .... in bennys head.
The people gasped as he bled:
The end of a ted?

Well, they dragged him from the wreckage of the palais in bits.
They tried to stick together all the bits that would fit.
But some of him was missing
And part of him arrived too late,
So now he works for jesus
As the bouncer at st. peters gate.

    General CommentThe basic story:

    Some guy named Sidney pours his drink on the bouncer's feet. The bouncer gets mad and a fight ensues. "Savage Sid" uses a switchblade as a weapon, whereas Benny the Bouncer uses a meat pie. (You've got to wonder, where's the logic in that?) Sid wins (unsurprisingly). He stabs the bouncer in the head. He dies (unsurprisingly). But then he goes to heaven and so now he's the bouncer at the Pearly Gates. Presumably, he is not using pie as a weapon anymore.

    It's actually a pretty funny story...at least it is to me...

    General CommentNice little ditty about a bouncer getting way more than he bargained for. Love it, as with all the songs on Brain Salad Surgery ^_^
