"Alec Eiffel" as written by and Charles Thompson....
Pioneer of aerodynamics
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)
They thought he was real smart Alec
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)
He thought big they called it a phallic
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)
They didn't know he was panoramic

Little Eiffel stands in the archway
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)
Keeping low doesn't make no sense

Sometimes people can be oh so dense
They didn't want it but he built it anyway
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)

Little Eiffel stands in the archway
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)
Keeping low don't make sense
Keeping low doesn't make no-sense
(Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel)
Little Eiffel stands in the archway

Oh Alexander I see you beneath
The archway of aerodynamics
...

    General CommentWhen the Eiffel Tower was built it was meant to be a temporary construction, and many people in Paris thought it was ugly. It appeared to be doomed and preparations were underway to tear it down, but was actually saved by the new invention of radio - there was nothing else in Paris high enough to act as a good radio mast location. Interesting that people have been talking about the design being ahead of its time, and it was also saved by something ahead of its time in the form of radio.

    The song seems to suggest that people are petty and backwards looking, and they try to tear down people who try to achieve something great - like the Pixies, perhaps.
