"Blue Turk" as written by and Alice Cooper Michael Bruce....
I'm lazy, you know it
I'm ready for the second show
Amazin', thing growing
Just waitin' for the juice to flow

But you're so very picturesque
You're so very cold
Tastes like roses on your breath
But graveyards on your soul

I'm hurting, I'm wanting
I'm aching for another go
You're squirming wet, baby
Nothin' bad comin' very slow
And it's burnin' holes in me

You're so very picturesque
You're so very cold
It tastes like roses on your breath
But graveyards on your soul... whoa-oh

One spastic explosion
Two pressure-cookers go insane
It makes me act crazy
I shiver but I love this game

You're so very ordinary
You're so very lame
Tastes like whiskey on your lips
And earthworms rule your brain

    General CommentTHis is a nice song - but what is it about? Remember that Alice Cooper was the original shock rocker. I am pretty sure it is a jazzy tune about necrophilia. I have been hearing this o my ipod lately and kept thinking it is about sex, basically, and after the sex the narrator doesn't think much of the girl, who seems pretty passive, and I thought, "Well, he's a misogynist."

    But now that I am here and am actually reading the lyrics I am seeing her described as cold, earthworms, lame, graveyards - uhh - I am starting to see some necrophiliac spiel here.

    Only "One spastic explosion two pressure cookers go insane" doesn't fit into this interpretation, does it? If she were dead there wouldn't be "two" pressure cookers going insane, would there?

    It would be interesting to hear from somebody who had seen this song performed live back in the day as Alice Cooper had quite a stage show - might add some insight.

    General CommentI've always had this question about the title. What does the title, "Blue Turk", mean? I never heard of the word turk. what's turk mean?

    General CommentThe title's a bit of a puzzle. "Blue" could mean obscene, as in blue movies, or it could just imply post-coital melancholy. Turk is almost certainly filthy - it's usually a verb meaning to have sex. But Turkish means anal sex, so there might be a hint of that meaning, too. Hope this helps. Wonderful song, one of Alice's finest. Love the way it comes down to earth at the end.

    General CommentThe song was just part of the tale to the Welcome To My Nightmare album. It's about having sex with a dead corpse, Ethyl. Alice has said so himself and it's pretty obvious.

    General CommentYes, necophilia fits. Only ONE spastic explosion but TWO pressure cookers - his balls? Very crude, very Alice! Thanks, moik.
    Still a weird title.
