SongBookPlums Drop

by Pants On

based on Mmm Bopp by Hanson

Played on the The Breakfast Show (6/6/97).

   [Sang in a squeaky Alan Bawl style voice]
  Well I am young and Squeaky,
  I'm only 10 years old,
  I've got a big hit record,
  A million copies sold.

  I've lovely long blonde hair,
  I stop up late at night,
  I can have 10 bags of sweeties,
  The future's looking bright.

  Till by plums drop,
  Ooh my plums drop,
  Until my plums drop,
  Yeah my plums drop,
  Skibby dibby dibby dibby,
  Plums drop,
  Until my plums drop,
  Yeah my plums drop,
  Skibby dibby dibby dibby,
  Plums drop,
  Until my plums drop,
  Ooh my plums drop,
  Until my plums drop.

  My body's lithe and hairless,
  I don't have acne yet,
  I'm hyperactive and obnoxious,
  A precocious little get.

  So we are dead, dead famous,
  My pig ugly brothers and me,
  And everything is sorted,
  Till I reach puberty.

  When my plums drop,
  Ooh my plums drop,
  Skibby dibby dibby dibby,
  Plums drop,
  When my plums drop,
  Skibby doo, skibby doo,
  Plums drop,
  Until my plums drop,
  Skibby dibby dibby dibby,
  Plums Drop,
  Until my plums drop,
  Yeah!

  The world it is my lobster,
  I have no need to fret,
    [creaky noise]
  Hey what's happening in me undies?
    [His voice slowly starts to deepen]
  This ain't supposed to happen yet.
    [David Bowie erection springy sound effect]

  Cor blimey, there is a big wet patch,
  What's happened down there our kid?
  Hey me voice has gone bonkers and now..

  My plums have dropped,
  Oh Christ my plums drop,
  In the middle of a big record,
  Plums drop,
  What are we going to do now?
  That's the act over listen to him,
  Plums drop,
  I'm like Fat Harry White,
  Plums drop,
  Goodness Gracious,
  Plums drop,
  Hey, now Plums drop,
  Hey it's never goin to work is it?
  We're only gonna get the pubescent market like this,
  I think I'll get a job on the council,
  Pass us me chisel bag,
  I'm off to the Direct Work.
