"Throw Your Foot" as written by and Robert James Smith....
It's funny how your face gets bigger
Gets bigger in this atmosphere
And your mouth goes dry
With every move you try
It's so funny here

Jumping around
Click click click
When you're so slow
It's like the world is stopping

Fifteen times I try this
And every time I faint
You look at me and
Start to tell the joke
About the man who couldn't stop
Hiccuping

It would be so perfect
If you would just fall out the window
Throw your foot away
You're tired and your face is gray
Like the sad old fool
You groove

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

It's funny how your face gets bigger
Gets bigger in this atmosphere
And your mouth goes dry

It would be so perfect
If you would just fall out the window
Throw your foot away
You're tired and your face is gray
Like the sad old fool
You groove

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

Throw your foot away
Throw your foot away

    General CommentRobert wrote this song in 1983, with the help of some magic mushroom tea, and it's about a dance which he "perfected." It's the most enjoyable bout of drug induced silliness I've heard in a very long time.

    General CommentI really miss this style of writing found on the earlier albums, and especially the b-sides. The lyrics on the last few albums have become more bloated, formulaic, and literal.
