  • 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 Writer/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS
