'White Soft Rope' lyrics.....
  • O.Kaaaaaaaaaaaaay......
    The following appear to be the internet's accepted version of the lyrics to 'White Soft Rope':

    Behind an endless rose and light
    Well everybody knows
    Trees are bowing to the wind
    They're singing just for you

    White soft rope
    White soft rope

    Handsome boy and girl
    You taunted til it broke
    Sun has eyes
    And sea is clear
    A generic world is clean

    White soft rope
    White soft rope

    A sunny smile
    A generic world is clean
    A sunny smile
    A generic world is clean
    A sunny smile
    A generic world is clean
    A sunny smile
    A generic world is clean

    White soft rope
    Is methin
    White soft rope
    White soft rope

    I've two questions:
    1) Towards the end the 'children' sing the refrain "A sunny smile, A generic world is clean" which is fine excpet for the fact that they sing something else after the word 'smile'. Any idea what it is? Currently going with "And double cream" for now. :(

    2) What the hell is 'methin'? :-O I'm suspecting a Goldfrapp in-joke but maybe someone else knows different....

    Cheers. :ar!

    White Soft Rope amazing? or White Soft Rope is easy?
  • I always thought the 'methin' thing was merely a child with a lisp singing 'missing' (?)
    When you're ready, you may turn around and face me
  • It seems a lot of written lyrics found on-line these days are done by software, not humans.  Sub titles on TV certainly are, some of the complete gobbledegook they come out with.
    I suspect this is the origin of 'And every-time I think of you, I see the darki, hear their hooves'.
    The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ.
    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit.
    Shall lure it back to cancal half a line,
    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

Howdy, Stranger!
