"Talula" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Congratulate you
Said you had a double tongue
Balancing cake and bread
Say goodbye to a glitter girl

Talula
Talula
You don't want to lose her
She must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula
Talula
She's brand new now to you
Wrapped in your papoose
Your little Fig Newton

Say goodbye to the old world
Ran into the Henchman who severed
Anne Boleyn
He did it right quickly a merciful man
She said one plus one is two
But Henry said that it was three
So it was
Here I am

Talula
Talula
I don't want to lose it
It must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula
Talula
She's brand new now to you
Wrapped in your papoose
Your little Fig Newton

And Jamaica
Do you know what I have done
Mary M weaving on said
What you want is in the blood Senators
I got Big Bird on the fishing line
With a bit of a shout a bit of a shout
A bit of an angry snout
He's my favourite hooker of the whole bunch
And I know about his only Bride
And how the Russians die on the ice
I got my rape hat on
Honey but I always could accessorise
And I never cared too much for the money
But I know right now
That it's in God's hands
But I don't know who the Father is

Talula
Talula
I don't want to lose him
He must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula
Talula
He's brand new now to you
Wrapped in your papoose
Your little Fig Newton

    General CommentI think it's about a woman who was raped and she doesn't know if the father is her man or the man who raped her. I think the line where she refrences ann boylen "he did it right quickly,a murciful man" is comparing Henry the 8th's hiring an expert swordsman to behead her so it was done quickly with little or no pain, to how long it took the rapist to finish raping her. kind of a sarcastic shot at the rapist for his lack of endurance. I think"big bird on a fishing line"and "favorite hooker in whole bunch" relates to abortion (removing the fetus)but that might be a stretch...
