Music: Toy Boy - Mika
Friday, November 16, 2012



I love Mika, his music always seem to cheer me up!


Lyrics
I’m a wind-up toy in an up down world
If you leave me all alone, I’ll make a mess for sure
I’ve a heart of gold in the smallest size
Leave me in the dark, you’ll never hear me cry

More than an illustration
Points of articulation
Come to life on a brass spring
Such a wonderful plaything

It’s a cruel cross that I have to bear
If you come a little closer I’m going to pull your hair
More than just a toy in a patched blue suit
Hold me in your arms I’m just a boy like you

But your mama thought there was somethin’ wrong
Didn’t want you sleeping with a boy too long
It’s a serious thing in a grown-up world
Maybe you’d be better with a Barbie girl

You knew that I adored-ya
But you left me in Georgia
Toys are not sentimental
How could I be for rental?

She’s the meanest hag that has ever been
Pulled out my insides with an old safety pin
I’m the sorest sight, now I feel like trash
Clothes are made of rags and they don’t even match

So she dressed me up as the man she loved
Threw me in a box when she had had enough
Now the light of day I no longer see
She stuck her voodoo pins where my eyes used to be

Accidentally tragic
Victim of her black magic
Had a boy once who loved me
Now he's so afraid of me

On a long lost day when you're gray and dull
You'll be there remembering your old toy boy
When your oldest son wonderin' what to be
Tell him the story of a boy like me

This song is about how gay people are simply not accepted in this society. Oh well. I love the tune and the lyrics. I'm charmed by Mika, mainly because he's quirky. (not weird) I love quirky people. I think everyone should be quirky, but then again that would make everyone seem normal. Found a girl last time who rolled on the floor after eating because "it feels good". Sadly we kinda lost contact.

I guess I like quirky people because I'm pretty quirky myself. Though I can't exactly pinpoint what exactly it is with me, but I'm pretty sure my friends don't think I'm normal or anything positive sounding. But I like it this way, for life is just a game and it wouldn't be worth living if it ain't fun. Quirky people are awesome because they have their own idiosyncrasies that doesn't affect anyone around them.

Mika's music make me want to sing and dance in my own little world, however sad the lyrics are, you can always make it sound like it's a good thing! An example would be Happy Ending by Mika.

Well, cheers to all the quirky people in the world.
