"Pink Thing" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on the 1989 album Oranges & Lemons.

The demo appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 6 in 2004.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “It's either about a penis or a son. Whatever you hear first, that's what it's about. The penis idea is obvious. The son part might not be. But you can interpret the song as a father talking to his son about girls. The title comes from the fact that my wife and I used to call our first child ‘the pink thing’.”

Andy (on the demo): “When you become a dad you badly want to write about your kids, it's natural, but it seems to easy to fall into the sickly greetings card world overpopulated by well meaning but flatulent fathers. So I thought I'd write about Harry in a way that was utterly unmistakable with thinly disguised filth. Ah! The Double entendre. Of course being more of an upright member of society these days, if I spot a D.E. in my lyrics I whip it out immediately. It's the same with mistakes, they come out too, I wouldn't want you seeing any big fat stinkers I'd made. What?”

LyricsEdit

Anytime you rise, I'm here,

And I'm crazy for you pink thing

You make me want to laugh,

You make me want to cry,

When I stroke your head I feel a hundred heartbeats high,

Pink thing


I want to take you out and show you round the world,

Pink thing it'll be OK

If I could only wake you from your slumber curled,

Pink thing what would straight folks say?


That man isn't fit to enter heaven

That man is a sinner,

Ever burning in disgrace

Pink thing, spit in my face,

I'd love you for it


Anytime you call, I'll fall,

Into madness for you pink thing

You make me want to live

You make me want to die

And when I stroke your head I feel a hundred heartbeats high,

Pink thing


I want to take you out and show you to the girls,

Pink thing they're a whole new tribe

If you could only see the way the way the gingham swirls,

Pink thing it's a whole new vibe


That man isn't fit to be a father

That man is a sinner,

'Fore they cast me down to die,

Pink thing, spit in my eye,

I'd love you for it

Yes, I'd love you for it


Anytime you rise, I'm here,

And I'm crazy for you pink thing

You make me want to laugh,

You make me want to cry,

When I stroke your head I feel a hundred heartbeats high,

Pink thing

Hundred heartbeats high,

Pink thing

Hundred heartbeats high


I want to introduce you,

Take you to the brink thing

I want to introduce you,

Tell me what you think thing

I want to introduce you,

Make that missing link thing

Don't you think it's time you met some female pink thing?


You make me want to laugh,

You make me want to cry,

So why is it I'm happy when there's tears down in your eye?


Little pink thing
