Talula- Tori Amos

Song Challenge

Thank you Ivy-chan for nominating me. ❤

The Rules:

1. Post a song a day for five consecutive days.

2. Post what the lyrics mean to you (optional).

3. Post the name of the song and video.

 

I was almost named after this song, Talula. My mom though it was pretty name but my dad didn’t want me to be named after a song about a rape and an abortion. “That it’s in God’s hands, oh, But I don’t know who the Father is“. Sometimes late at night I wonder if somehow Talula was what Tori named one of her daughters that never made it (she had many miscarriages) and her daughter’s soul traveled to my mother’s womb and that’s why I was almost named after her. On accident. How silly, I know. I can’t help where my thoughts go to.

Though I think when I am older I might change my name to Talula if I ever get tired of Evie.

 

[original mix]
Congratulate you
Said you had a double tongue
Balancing cake and bread
Say goodbye to a glitter girl

[tornado mix]
He’s chasing tornadoes
I’m just waiting calmly
Chasing her, hey

[Chorus]
Talula, Talula
You don’t want to lose her
She must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula, Talula (sugar)
She’s brand new now to you (sweet love)
Wrapped in your papoose (softly)
Your little Fig Newton

Say goodbye now my baby, gotta go
Say goodbye my baby to the Old World

Ran into the Henchman that severed
Anne Boleyn
He did it right quickly, a merciful man
She said one plus one is two (maybe I’m a happy man)
But Henry said (maybe I’m a honeydew)
That it was three (maybe it’s a bad job)
So it was, here I am (maybe it’s a what you are)

[Chorus]
Talula, Talula
I don’t want to lose it
It must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula, Talula (listen)
She’s brand new now to you (baby)
Wrapped in your papoose (supper’s)
Your little Fig Newton (chillin’)

And Jamaica
Do you know, do you know what I have done
Mary M weaving on said
What you want is in the blood Senators
Said what you want is in the blood Senators

I got Big bird on the fishing line
With a bit of a shout a bit of shout
A bit of an angry snout
He’s my favourite hooker of the whole bunch
And I know about his only Bride
And how the Russians die on the ice
I got my rape hat on
Honey but I always could accessorise
And I never cared too much for the money
But I know right now, honey
That it’s in God’s hands, oh
But I don’t know who the Father is

[Chorus]
Talula, Talula
I don’t want to lose him
He must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula, Talula
He’s brand new now to you
Wrapped in your papoose
Your little Fig Newton
Your little Fig Newton
Your little Fig Newton

[Outro]
He’s chasing tornadoes
I’m just waiting calmly
