Golden Retriever
Lyrics
Hey said the devil
When I met you at the roundabout
She's got powers
Magnetic devours you of everything you've got

She's a golden retriever
Retrieves your oldest coin
Leads you blindly down every dark alley
Then she'll bleed you dry

Stop! Said the puppy
When I met him at the zebra cross
She said "You need protection
From every direction
But she'll get you anyhow"

She's a golden retriever
Retrieves your oldest coin
Leads you blindly down every dark alley
Then she'll bleed you dry

She's a golden retriever
She's a golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever

Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever
Golden retriever




Notes
  • Track by track, by Gruff Rhys



  • 3/ Golden Retriever


    I listen to a lot of people like Davey Graham, a lot of British folk and bluesmen and European acoustic musicians from the fifties and sixties, and musically 'Golden Retriever' has that kind of feel. The lyrics are a blues parody "I met the devil at the roundabout" I tried to update blues vocabulary, because I think that one of the things that bothers me most about rock and roll music is that people keep regurgitating the same words. I try to make my own clichés, you know? It also coincided with passing my driving test a few years back, which had a great affect on my life. In studying for my theory test I had to absorb a lot of road sign and driving theory vocabulary, which has made its way into songs like 'Golden Retriever' and 'Valet Parking'.
