Speaking of fromageathons, does anyone else think the opening verse to "A Little Bit More" by Dr Hook is just a bit....creeeeeeeeeeepy.

"When your body's had enough of me
And I'm layin' flat out on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can
I'm gonna love you a little bit more"

Trans - When I've shagged you bandy, and you're totally wrecked and think we're done for the night, I'm gonna have another crack atcha' and you won't be able to do anything about it.

My mum used to like that song. 8^(

Isn't this an answer song to "In Every Dream Home A Heartache"? Surely it's the blow up doll singing back to Bryan!

Is "When You're in Love With A Beautiful Wopman" a continuation on the theme? The cocaine/quaalude-guzzling hero moving towards breakdown..

When you're in love with a beautiful woman
It's hard .
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You know it's hard .
Everybody wants her
Everybody loves her
Everybody wants to take your baby home .
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You watch your friends

Both of those are tame, compared to another Dr. Hook song - "She's Doing Quaaludes Again":

"She fumbles and stumbles
And falls down the stairs
Makes love to the leg
Of the dining room chair
She's ready for animals, women or men
She's doing quaaludes again"

Good grief. And they seemed such laid back gentlemen when they were on TOTP's. Didn't realise how depraved they were.

I wonder if there's any songs in Bread's repetoire about deviant acts with a variety of species whilst on potent pharmaceuticals?
