Out On Blue Six : Third World

Every time I hear this one now I always think of that line from Grass, a Fast Show spin off from the early 00s, which has Simon Day as Billy Bleach pondering the lyrics; "What's that line about; Make Nanny Soup?...I was on a bus with the band once and I asked the lead singer what it was supposed to mean. He just looked at me like I was some sort of idiot"

It's a mondegreen - a misheard lyric. The line is of course, 'Make Daddy Shoot' which gives the song a far less wholesome air!

End Transmission
