"Humourless? Us?" - Siouxsie & the Banshees

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 29 September 1979

"...Thy Kingdom come / They will be done / In Earth as it is in Heaven / Amen... Knock, knocking on Heaven’s door / Let me in! / Dingalingalingfuckinding on Heaven’s door... my little chickadee... I’ll get you in the end... Shake it, shake it, shake it baby... / Twist and shout... yodelayhehe / Tomorrow belongs to me... Oh clare dela lune / Mon ami pierrot."
(‘The Lord’s Prayer - Book Of Common Prayer / Dylan / Sioux / WC Fields / Lennon-McCartney / Topnotes / trad.)
