"Humpty Dumpty" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great, great fall and
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again

Humpty Dumpty and Betty Louise
Stole a Sony and some Camembert cheese
And she said "Humpty baby
Take me to the river
Cause I like the way it runs
Take me to the river
You know I like the way it runs"

He said "ah, ooh, everything's going my way"
He said "maybe it's my lucky day"
I said "anything you want I can give"
She said "I want to take your picture, mm, just for me"
He said "anything"
She said "up there baby get on the wall babe"

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
And looked at her as he was falling and
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again

Hey Betty Louise Betty Louise
She said "I like custard in the summer, honey"
What it takes to be Queen
What it takes to be Queen
What it takes to be

    General CommentI don't know why, but I absolutley love this b-side.

    To me, it's about a guy who would do anything for a girl who betrays him, and in the end only has self-preservation and her own selfish interests in mind.

    General Commentlol she tricks him into sitting on a wall, and, being a giant egg, he falls and breaks open, giving her all the yolk she needs for her custard, which she loves to have in the summer time. horrifying and hilarious simultaneously.
