"Wonder Annual" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 1 in 2002.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “Actually a song about female masturbation, yay! Let's have more of it. This demo dates from April 91, and along with ['The Disappointed'], was one of the last two things written for Nonsuch. Oh... How I wanted to record this for that album, or Wasp Star, or any. It's one of my very favourite unrecorded XTC songs, so I guess it'll exist only in this form. If lust equals knowledge, then I side with the snake.”

LyricsEdit

Hustle, fustle

Push shove bustle

So goes the dance of the milling mass

Work, rent, mortgage

Magic shortage

Why queue for milk from their golden ass


Open up your Wonder Annual

Turn on the leaves of your private book

Open up your Wonder Annual

and, if I may, can I lay and look?

At the gold and the silver

that will fly from your hands


Hands of Ripper pours paint stripper

Toasting the worms in their shallow graves

Draw your blinds down

Sketch an unfrown

Show me the door through which all are saved


Open up your Wonder Annual

Turn on the leaves of your private book

Open up your Wonder Annual

and, if I may, can I lay and look?

At the shells full of pearl

that will float from your gate

And if lust equals knowledge

then I side with the snake


Open up your Wonder Annual

Turn on the leaves of your private book

Open up your Wonder Annual

and, if I may, can I lay and look?


Open up your Wonder Annual

Turn on the leaves of your private book

Open up your Wonder Annual

and, if I may...
