The Man With the Red Face
Laurent Garnier Lyrics


Deedely dum dum dum, deedely dum dum
This is the mandolin playing the melody
Here comes the man with the mandolin
Mandolin playing melody again
He'll cheer you up 'til your ship comes in
Loveable old fellow playing an old tune
He comes 'round every afternoon
Raggedy old minstrel, wearing a big grin
You'll love the man with the mandolin
All the kids foller, all the kids holler
To the windows above
Mamma throw a nickle and the man wil tick
A little tune we love
Mandolin plays melody again
Open your heart let the music in
Mandolin again
There goes the man with the mandolin

Laurent Garnier: “We were in the studio and we put a pair of headphones on his (Philippe Nadaud, sax player) head so we could speak to him while he was playing. He was playing and we were going ‘nah, this is shit, this is really shit’. But it wasn’t actually shit. No no, it was great, I just really wanted to piss him off.” As Laurent later wrote in Electrochoc, Phillippe felt uneasy and couldn’t let the music control him. “We did it for about 20 minutes, the poor guy just couldn’t breathe, he was bright red, with a sweaty face, the mouthpiece seemed to be stuck between his lips, while we continued: ‘This is fucking shit, go harder, go harder’… and this is why the track goes nuts.” And this why it got this name.
