I enjoy this song, first and foremost, but I looked up the lyrics and I can't make heads or tails of them. The booby part is apparently b' obey. Why? Foreign? I don't know. This is supposed to be my job! I think she is saying she wants a young but powerful man-of-age to come to her and make demands of her is such a way that he entices her to obey for the opportunity to be with him . . . as long as he is wearing clothes.

They're so f**king clever. That's a chord progression if I've ever heard one

I don't think those lyrics are correct, I believe the words are not English nor French or any other dialect but something called "mouth music".

Elizabeth Fraser's vocals in Silent Spring are deliberately indecipherab l e and are of a made-up language, much like some of her work in her previous band the Cocteau Twins.

Why is Massive Attack's Collected (Special Edition) not on itunes? I really like Silent Spring.
Report as inappropriate
Haha, I love these lyrics. I'm pretty sure it's being sung in French or Portuguese or some similar language, not jibberish English
