Some Yuletide Frivolity - the Bomb as written by Adam Clayton

As Bono is so fond of telling everyone that Adam Clayton is "The Poshest Member of U2" I have imagined how the album might sound if Adam were extremely posh and was the lyricist. This is rather silly but for other children out there I hope it brings a sprinkling of amusement...

Part I - Vertigo

VERTIGO

Unus, duo, tres, quattuor!

The lights have been extinguished, it’s quite murky
Amazonia has filled your mind
But it cannot rule your heart
A sentiment is so very much stronger than
A contemplation
Your eyes are capacious
And whilst your splendid soul
Cannot be purchased
Your intellect is quite capable of meandering

A very good morning A very good morning
One is situated in a locale by the name of Vertigo
It is all that one is inclined to wish one was not acquainted with
With the exception of your good self who provides one with a little that one can sense, sense

The hours of darkness are replete with punctures
As ammunition rips the firmament
Of ink with gold
They sparkle as the
Chaps play shake and revolve
They are aware of their ineptitude with regard to the boogie
At least they know….

I cannot bear the beats
I’m asking for the invoice
The fine filly with cerise fingernails
Has Jesus round her décolletage
Vacillating to the music
Vacillating to the music
Oh oh oh oh

A very good morning A very good morning
One is situated in a locale by the name of Vertigo
It is all that one is inclined to wish one was not acquainted with
With the exception of your good self who provides one with a little that one can sense, sense

A splendid end to a game of chess
Oh absolutely
Hours of pleasurable amusement…

All of this, all of my estate can be yours
All of this, all of this is quite within your grasp

All of this, all of this can be yours
Just please bestow upon me that which I desire and no-one shall be impaired….

A very good morning A very good morning
One is situated in a locale by the name of Vertigo
It is all that one is inclined to wish one was not acquainted with
With the exception of your good self who provides one with a little that one can sense, sense

One can sense that your devotion is instructing one in how
Your adoration is coaching one in quite how, how to genuflect…

Yah yah yah yah

That's very funny!

Here's how Elmer Fudd would have written Vertigo:

Unos dos twes catowce!
Wights go down, it’s dawk
De jungwe is youw head
Can’t wuwe youw heawt
A feewing is so much stwongew than A thought
Youw eyes awe wide And though youw souw
It can’t be bought Youw mind can wandew

Hewwo hewwo I’m at a pwace cawwed Vewtigo
It’s evewything I wish I didn’t know
Except you give me something I can feew, feew

De night is fuww of howes
As buwwets wip the sky Of ink wif gowd
Dey twinkwe as the Boys pway wock and woww
Dey know they can’t dance At weast they know….
I can’t stand the beats I’m asking fow the cheqwe
De giww wif cwimson naiws Has Jesus wound hew neck
Swinging to the music Swinging to the music
Oh oh oh oh

Hewwo hewwo I’m at a pwace cawwed Vewtigo
It’s evewything I wish I didn’t know
But you give me something I can feew, feew

Check mated
Oh yeah Houws of fun…
Aww of this, aww of this can be youws
Aww of this, aww of this can be youws
Aww of this, aww of this can be youws
Just give me what I want and no-one gets huwt….

Hewwo hewwo We’we at a pwace cawwed Vewtigo
Wights go down and aww I know
Is that you give me something
I can feew youw wove teaching me how
Youw wove is teaching me how,
how to kneew…

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Headache, I love that one, also.

I didn't find "moron" to be too funny, did you?
