      About "Knife and Fork"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Knife and Fork"

      [Chorus:]
      I'm comin' back home to you
      Stuck to you like crazy glue
      Don't want to go on living without
      Something left to shout about
      We'll play the game of love and fate
      I'll be the knife and fork, and you be the plate...

      Now welcome baby to my pad of delights
      Have a drink... do you like my tights?
      This switch here'll make the lights go down low
      And this one here makes all the bubbles go
      The water's warm, yes, a sunken tub
      Tonight you'll be joinin' my exclusive club
      Here now do you want to see somethin' fine?
      Straight from Singapore... cost me five and nine
      It's a picture of a man and an Egyptian queen
      Kept in the family, if you know what I mean

      [Chorus ]

      Now I know you'll say my approach is direct
      But don't throw out this mail before you check
      We go together like fish and fin
      Aphrodite and Zeus, water and Gunga Din
      We'll perform here on this sacrificial slab
      For your sweet, sweet love, I'll even go back to rehab

      [Chorus]

      For you I'll even grow a pencil thin moustache
      You can put me in chains... I'll wear that wolf mask
      And you can starve me in your basement for a couple of weeks
      Just please let me squeeze one of your rosy cheeks
      I want to float with you on a cumulus cloud
      I want to take you far away from this maddening crowd
      You can scratch up my back with your long fingernails
      We'll drink some weird wine and eat psychedelic snails
