"Ambitious" as written by and Rodgers....
Chain link route ways
Digital time base
New hours for these days
New files engaged

Strangeness detectors
Collage charmers
Magnetic behavior
Quarks and order

When it's cold I feel cold
When it's hot I feel ambitious
Fit for a princess
Hot on the heels of an angel

Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? I feel ambitious

The ideal copy is the same
The ideal copy has your name
When you can't, it makes you can
When you aren't, it makes you am

When it's cold I feel cold
When it's hot I feel ambitious
Fit for a princess
Hot on the heels of an angel

Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? I feel ambitious

When it's cold I feel cold
When it's hot I feel ambitious
Fit for a princess
Hot on the heels of an angel

Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? I feel ambitious

The ideal copy is what you want
When you won't, it makes you will
The ideal copy makes you happy
The ideal copy

When it's cold I feel cold
When it's hot I feel ambitious
Fit for a princess
Hot on the heels of an angel

Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? Are you hot?
Are you hot? I feel ambitious

The ideal copy is
See I A D N A see K G be
The ideal copy
P L O I A K G I are A

The ideal copy

The ideal copy

The ideal copy

The ideal copy
The ideal copy

    Song MeaningIn short, it's about DNA and its command over our behaviour, such as why we select certain people as mates or sex partners, ever seeking to create the "ideal copy" of ourselves. The point, of course, is gradually extrapolated to utter nonsense (to great effect, I might add)...

    As for the song itself: Graham Lewis' manic half-rapped performance on the LP is excellent (and hilarious), but I'll admit that I prefer the take recorded on Coatings, with the quirky proto-techno effects and Colin Newman's wonderfully resigned, sweet delivery.
