You guys are about 38 years late. Where humor is concerned, better never than late.


BTW, the "Maurice" in that song is a reference to the song "Enter Maurice" on an even earlier album.
Great. Now if we could explain "pompatus..."
Pompatus would appear to be a lyric from *another* much older song, misheard by Steve Miller. The word from that older song "The Letter" written and sung by the late Vernon Green, is puppetutes--women who are half puppet and half prostitute. Green was discussing the advanatages of having "puppetutes of love."
