"This is the End" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on the 1992 fan club cassette The Bull with the Golden Guts, then on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 3 in 2003.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “Originally destined to be the last track on ‘Oranges’, it was rehearsed extensively in L.A. but dropped at the last minute. It also sounds oddly close to the Muppet Cookie Monster's ‘Why Am Me Blue?’.”

Andy: “I remember rehearsing this at ‘Leads’ Studios in Los Angeles for Oranges and Lemons with the intention of it closing the album, but it was not to be. I was the only one rooting for it, then one morning my enthusiasm was dampened by catching something on the TV as I raced around getting ready to leave for the studio. My kids were watching Sesame Street and Cookie Monster was singing a song called ‘Why Am Me Blue?’ Damnit! It was so close in chords and melody to my tune. Well, that was that. It died with a fluffy stake through its heart. Johnny Alucard killed by vampire hunter Van Henson.”

LyricsEdit

This is the end

This is the end

This is the part where all the curtains come down

And they won't drop Fat Boy on your town

But if they do I hope it's not a trend


This is the end

This is the end

This is the reel where all the titles come up

And you have no more drink in your cup

So here's where sweet and bitter rivers blend


This is the end

Of all the bread we broke together

This is the end

Of all that fine and fishing weather


I don't want to hear you've been crying

I don't want to hear you've been trying to revive it

Let it go

Let it lay down

Let it go

And if it won't stay down that's the surest sign

That something new's beginning


This is the end

This is the end

This is the part where all the lights flicker on

And we can see the popcorn has gone

Off looking for new causes to defend


This is the end

This is the end

That mythical place where everybody shakes hands

No hard feelings and no hard glands

The bible says it's when cats and dogs make friends


This is the end

Of all the wars, of all the roses

This is the end

Of kissing arse and rubbing noses


I don't want to hear you've been sorry

I don't want to hear you've been worrying about me

Let it die

Let it lay down

Let it die

So let it all break down to rotten

That's the way we'll grow new flowers


This is the end

This is the end

Now this is where the string has led us all to

A sign that says "Please start here anew"

So let me hear them violins all rend
