Happiness Is Eggshaped



Happiness is egg-shaped and love's
a circle with no end
It's only four o'clock in the morning
And you're still driving me around the bend
I'll tell you something, I'll tell you true
I've got a letter to send to you

It's twenty feet tall and it's sprayed on a wall
I'm gonna post it from your fifth floor window
Yeah, yeah
Crash it right down on your car
I don't know maybe then that'll teach you
Not to kiss the sky too hard

I'll tell you something, I'll tell you true
I've got a letter to send to you
You're too busy dreaming, so what am
I going to do ?

I've got to get you right off of my back
'Cause you're no fun girl
My whole world's turning black
'Cause you're no fun girl

I know there's two sides to every story
You can keep your kiss of death
'cause I choose glory, yeah

Happiness is egg-shaped and love's
a circle with no end
It's only four o'clock in the morning
And you're still driving me around the bend

I'll tell you something, I'll tell you true
I've got a letter to send to you
You're too busy dreaming, so what am
I going to do ?

I've got to get you right off of my back
'Cause you're no fun girl
My whole world's turning black
'Cause you're no fun girl

I know there's two sides to every story
You can keep your kiss of death
'cause I choose glory, yeah

Details:
Happiness Is Eggshaped is Squire's answer to Brown's Ice Cold Cube.

The play on words - "Happiness is eggshaped" (A penis is egg-shaped) - is influenced by The Beatles' 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun' ("A penis is a warm gun"), a song banned by the BBC for its interpreted sexual content. On this theme, Squire in 2007 would entitle an artwork 'Priapism' (oil and sand on canvas, 47" x 36"). Priapism is a potentially harmful and painful medical condition in which the erect penis does not return to its flaccid state, despite the absence of both physical and psychological stimulation, within four hours. The name comes from the Greek god Priapus, who was noted for his disproportionately large and permanent erection. What with Squire whiling away some of his time in early 1991 to carve an eight-foot 'snow penis' using a set of Harrods kitchen knives, and some of the penile content on the Second Coming cover, one might say that John Thomas has quite the artistic obsession with all things John Thomas !
