It’s Song Lyric Sunday and we are out here posting songs about fixing and making things.
My mind first went to the Bob The Builder song… it goes, ” Can we fix it? Yes we can!” and then I had a brain wave and thought another song about making things. So here is my choice for today-
” I Can Make You a Man ” by Richard O’brien and performed by Tim Curry in the Rock Horror Picture show.
Enjoy- this is a fun one!
A weakling weighing ninety-eight pounds
Will get sand in his face when kicked to the ground.
And soon in the gym with a determined chin,
The sweat from his pores as he works for his cause…
Will make him glisten… and gleam
And with massage, and just a little bit of steam
He’ll be pink and quite clean
He’ll be a strong man. Oh honey…
But the wrong man.
He’ll eat nutritious high protein and swallow raw eggs.
Try to build up his shoulders, his chest, arms, and legs.
Such an effort if he only knew of my plan.
In just seven days, I can make you a man.
He’ll do press-ups, and chin-ups, do the snatch, clean and jerk.
He thinks dynamic tension must be hard work.
Such strenuous living I just don’t understand
When in just seven days, oh baby, I can make you a man.
and I couldn’t resist… Bob the Builder:
