about

It's a little number about a couple called Eddie and Sheena, which we came up with while walking around the Hunterian Museum in London looking at the embryos in the glass cups they've got there. Unfortunately Eddie and Sheena split and in this song we are singing about commitment, responsibility, making choices and also being made by them. We are singing about making babies and why otherwise considerate men often go awry when they hit 50 and sometimes before.

Well, Eddie had tracked down an old flame from his former kibbutz and they were getting on really well. She'd introduced him to another friend of hers and they all went dancing together. When they finally got home after an enjoyable night, Eddie was keen to sleep in her room. But she made him up a bed on the sofa and Eddie didn't make a fuss. Still, he felt restless and kept tossing and turning and glaring at the house cat (Brad), which was glaring right back at him from the kitchen table. Later, when it seemed as though enough time had passed for Eddie to fall asleep, a wide-awake Eddie began to hear sounds through the wall. A low frequency murmur that rose quickly into what was unmistakably the steady moaning and groaning sound of an excited man. His old flame had her good friend in there and she must've been fellating him. Eddie stiffened. Then he jumped to his feet and charged through the closed door, pitifully throwing himself on the bed. He tried to pull her off him. He felt so angry and frustrated and sad, which is why 'Eddie's Gone To Tel Aviv' is the most aggressive tune on the record.

We hope you like it!

lyrics

Eddie is so entertaining,
Doing what he loves the best,
And now she’s calling out his name,
And clawing at his hairy chest.

Watch little Eddie’s rigid hips,
As he heaves his tongue along his lips,
And Sheena smiled because she knew,
That’s just about all that they’ll do,
Then watch him chew his sleeve,
When she’s saying she’ll call you.

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv.

Well then he bought a ticket for the aeroplane,
Feeling sure that’s the cure for my distress,
And what’s the cure for labour pains,
Well then she left me feeling quite under dressed,
And it’s a shame you’re going through what your mother’s been through,
Keep out what’s out and keep in what’s in you.

And it’s a shame you’re going through what your mother’s been through,
Keep out what’s out and keep in what’s in you,
And Sheena smiled because she knew,
That’s just about all that she’ll do,
Oh nurse I can hardly breathe,
But I will see it through.

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv.

I saw them flapping on the bed,
I saw him laying down his hands upon her greedy head.

So then I ran through the open bedroom door,
And cry why do you do to him the thing I’m waiting for?

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv,
And good council says that the air is sweeter,
But there’s nothing else so dangerous.

Her unripe belly strained,
Her guts are tightly pressed,
And the frills of these fragile things are frayed,
Like the crackle of an ornate dress,
While the baby’s kicking.

While the baby’s kicking up a fuss,
Just barely squandered from the dust,
Life hardly belongs to us,
Sheena thinks and lightly blew,
The dust from her sleeve,
Where you wandering to?

Eddie’s gone to Tel Aviv.
