Cornflake Girl
Tori Amos Lyrics


Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution
Hangin' with the raisin' girls
She's gone to the other side
Givin' us a yo heave ho
Things are getting kind of gross
And I go at sleepy time
This is not really happening
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it's

Peel out the watchword
Just peel out the watchword

She knows what's going on
Seems we got a cheaper feel now
All the sweeteaze are gone
Gone to the other side
With my encyclopedia
They musta paid her a nice price
She's puttin' on her string bean love
This is not really happening
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it is
You bet your life it's

Peel out the watchword
Just peel out the watchword

Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution

Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys
Rabbit where'd you put the keys
Where'd you put the keys girl

And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the Man With The Golden Gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah

Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl
Rabbit where'd you put the keys
Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl

I was a fan of Kate Bush in the early 80s and then one day at uni, this song burst out of the radio. I was at uni working on a dissertation at the time. But this song was so distinctive that I literally put everything down and rushed out to HMV and bought Tori’s Album on the spot.

Still life moves on and I left all my music in the UK when I emigrated to Japan a few years later.

A quarter of a century later, I’m still in Tokyo, married, with kids... and we watched Everything Sucks on Netflix and suddenly I’m thrown back into the 90s!

Seeing all the people mention Everything Sucks and then reading those offended “anyone NOT here from Everything Sucks” comments makes me sad.

Music is supposed to unite us but the world has made people determined to divide themselves into US and THEM over increasingly trivial differences.

Not everything in life is either-or.

That show has brought Tori’s music to a new range of young people and judging by the demographic, they will need her healing and beauty.

Ps. Also “everything sucks” was a decent, heartwarming show.

Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution
Hanging with the raisin girls
She's gone to the other side
Giving us a yo heave ho
Things are getting kind of gross
And I go at sleepy time
This is not really happening
You bet your life it is [3x]

Peal out the watchword
Just peal out the watchword

She knows what's going on
Seems we got a cheaper feel now
All the sweeties are gone
Gone to the other side
With my encyclopedia
They must've paid her a nice price
She's putting on her string bean love
This is not really happening
You bet your life it is [3x]

Peal our the watchword
Just peal out the watchword

Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution

Rabbit, where'd you put the keys, girl?
Rabbit, where'd you put the keys, girl?
Rabbit, where'd you put the keys?
Oh, yeah
Rabbit, where'd you put the keys, where'd you put the keys, girl

And the man with the golden gun thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much yeah
(Don't close this door I know it's so easy)
And the man with the golden gun thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much yeah
(To close this door I know it's so easy)

Rabbit, where'd you put the keys, girl?
Oh yes, rabbit, where'd you put the keys, girl?
Rabbit, where'd you put the keys?
Oh yeah
Rabbit, where'd you put the keys, girl?

I don't mean to be unkind but all of her songs are contrived and weak. But - she is fascinating and I would go to see her.

I never got to meet my sister Courtney. She passed away in 1995 from cancer a few days before I was born. I luckily had her music collection to go through and I thank her for being with me through musicians like Tori. Love you, Courtney.
