I remember the summer of 1976. I swear summers used to be longer and hotter, but maybe my memory is through the rose-tinted spectacles of a child. I remember ‘the sun has got his hat on, hip-hip hip-hip hooray…’
I had no idea the lyric included audio-phonetics reminiscent of NWA Straight Outta Compton; which my then ‘feminist’ inclined journalist girlfriend was disgusted at, but I took her ‘free’ review CD and played it at The Marquee Club in Soho, London.
It seems the eco-fascist LGBTxyz Oxford English Dictionary memorizer vax pusher Stephen Fry adapted the lyric
“He’s been roasting peanuts” (written by Stephen Fry for the 1984 revival of Me and My Girl).
Spot the absolutely prohibited lyric in this version:
‘They’ weaponise words. ‘They’ are weaponising carbon dioxide, meat and the sun. I guess oxygen and water will be next. Clown world continuum.
