Song Info

S L S 1. 06. Little Sally
(Lyrics & Music by The Piz)


Description

"The repeat of one of the few lines in this song, 'Little Sally was sitting around' leads us to believe, but just hints at, her boredom. Whether she was bored or not is impossible to tell, and it is precisely the song's lack of psychological insight or narrative conclusion that is so intriguing." This is one of seven songs on Circus Maggots with identical music but different lyrics. The purpose of this was primarily to use up some old lines of song lyrics, but also as a stupid joke for people to figure out as they listened to the album. This particular song had new lyrics written for it rather than old ones.


Lyrics

Little Sally was sitting around
Little Sally looks at the ground
Little Sally was sitting around
and then she died
