"The Stinking Rich Songs," also known as "What a Peach," is a song by Andy Partridge. It is one of five songs Andy recorded for Disney's James and the Giant Peach before he was rejected in favor of Randy Newman. It appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 6 in 2004.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “Do you know, they showed James and the Giant Peach on telly here over Easter, in between an awful lot of eggs, chicks and chocolate being nailed up, and I turned off in disgust at the poverty of the songs. What an old reactionary I am. Hurt my throat doing the voices. But I forgive Randy Newman as he did write ‘Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear’.”

LyricsEdit

Stinking stinking stinking stinking

Stinking stinking stinking stinking

Stinking stinking stinking stinking rich


Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach


We can charge admission just to leer

And to peer they'll gladly pay up through the nose you know

And then two millionaires will soon be near

We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich


Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach


We can set a tent up selling beer

Not just beer there will be ice cream cones and souvenirs

And soon two millionaires we will be near

We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich


Stinking stinking stinking stinking

Stinking stinking stinking stinking

Stinking stinking stinking stinking rich


Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach


(Left channel)

We can sail to Hollywood, my dear

And, my dear, there will be cameramen and actors needing

Food and drink and we can charge them dear

We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich


(Right channel - sung under the above)

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach


(Right channel)

We can charge admission just to leer

And to peer they'll gladly pay up through the nose you know

And then two millionaires we will be near

We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich


(Left channel - sung under above)

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach

Oh what a peach

of an idea, of an idea, it's really a peach


We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich

We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich

We'll be stinking stinking stinking stinking rich
