"Nursery Rhyme" as written by Damon Michael Gough and Josh Davis....
Badly Drawn Boy:
Does it mean I never let you know
Each time I turn inside
When I fully grow I'll outsize you
But I won't let you fall in love
You know it flows over me
And you won't let me drown inside

Sing a nursery rhyme to keep me quiet
Sing a nursery rhyme to keep me quiet
Woman please stay close to me, close to me
Carried through your ecstasy

You can't stop me breathing
Even when you're on fire
Know that you're weaving
With my emotional wires
Flows through me, in through me, out through me
Over me, feeling me, feeding me electrically

It's electric ballroom love X7

Do do do do, do do do do
I have to breathe the air you breathe
I'm inside you
In a room inside a room, I'm inside you
The colour changes follow your emotion
I can see when you're feeling desire
I feel him close to you
While I just walk around inside you
Don't let him close to me
Not when you know it's not the one
The one X6 that you love
It's electric ballroom love X7
Keep me quiet

Won't you sing me a nursery rhyme
To keep me quiet while you're on fire
X3
Please just sing me a nursery rhyme
To keep me quiet, while I'm inside
X2
I won't let you fall in love
You know inside, the baby knows
X4
Your baby knows X4
You're on fire, you're on fire
Keep me quiet, keep me angry

    General CommentThat's a fetus talking from inside his sexually active mother. No kidding.
    That's why he says that "When I fully grow I'll outsize you".
    That's why he's in "a room inside a room, inside you" (the belly) being fed "electrically" and breathing "the air you breathe".
    About the sex part:
    He asks: "Woman please stay close to me, close to me/Carried through your ecstasy" and tells her: "You know inside, the baby knows/Your baby knows/You're on fire, you're on fire".
    A part that's quasi disgusting: "I feel him close to you". Eww.

    General Commenti agree with you but i also reckon the "i feel him close to you" part to be quite cool. badly drawn boy's flow is amazing.
