Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution
Hangin' with the raisin' girls
She's gone to the other side
Givin' us a yo heave ho
Things are getting kind of gross
And I go at sleepy time
This is not really happening
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it's

Peel out the watchword
Just peel out the watchword

She knows what's going on
Seems we got a cheaper feel now
All the sweeteaze are gone
Gone to the other side
With my encyclopedia
They musta paid her a nice price
She's puttin' on her string bean love
This is not really happening
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it's

Peel out the watchword
Just peel out the watchword

Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution

Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys
Rabbit where'd you put the keys
Where'd you put the keys girl

And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah

Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys
Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl

    General CommentYou know, I read that this song is about the practise of female gential mutlation, or female circumcision.
    Which would explain why this song is described as a "betrayal" & Jupiter Masochist's Tori quote - "This song describes the irreversible damage and pain rendered by a woman betraying another woman; it's a tragedy, really. Not even their common experiences as females can save what is ruined." As it is the women of the village who perform this upon the infant girls.

    And also: "Peel out the watchword just peel out the watchword" could refer to this, & especially "Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl" seems to apply, if you think about it.
