Funny man

Listen to the song

Recorded by: Cradle

A BAND FAVORITE….THIS SONG FEATURES A HAUNTING DUET BETWEEN SUZI AND NANCY….LYRICAL MIXED WITH HARSH/SOFT ASPECTS OF DRIVING GUITARS AND MUSIC. IT IS WRITTEN ABOUT IGGY STOOGE (WHO OUR DRUMMER NAN DATED IN THE EARLY BAND DAYS. DURING OUR CRADLE DAYS, THE WORLD SAW JAMES MORPH INTO IGGY STOOGE). THE SONG SPEAKS TO HIS SCHTICK ONSTAGE, AND THE INTERESTING AUDIENCE RESPONSE, TAKING IT OUT AND LOOKING AT IT DEEPER.

Lyrics

LOVE IS THE WAR OF LOVE—AND WAR IS THE LOVE OF HATE

FUNNY MAN, FUNNY MAN PLAY YOUR GAME
DO YOUR DANCE, PLAY THE PEOPLE
THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOIN
FUNNY MAN, FUNNY MAN

BRING THAT MADNESS TO THE SURFACE
DON’T DESPAIR, IT’S ALWAYS THERE
BRING IT UP GENTLY, THEY WON’T EVEN KNOW IT’S SHOWING
FUNNY MAN, FUNNY MAN

POKE FUN AT ALL , BEAT YOURSELF
BLOOD, GORE, GUTS, PEOPLE’S DELIGHT, WATCH THEM SMILE
WITH THEIR TONGUES HANGING OUT
MY THEY LOOK A FRIGHT, EYES SHINING BRIGHT

FUNNY MAN, FUNNY MAN PLAY YOUR GAME
FUNNY MAN, FUNNY MAN PLAY YOUR GAME
FUNNY MAN, PLAY YOUR GAME
WHO’S THE STOOGE, AND WHO’S TO BLAME
WHO’S TO BLAME, WHO’S TO BLAME
LOVE IS THE WAR OF LOVE— AND WAR IS THE LOVE OF HATE
