Title Fit - I Felt It

The first CD we listened to on our trip was Weird Al Yankovic's new release, Poodle Hat. All good Weird stuff (I particularly like Hardware Store and A Complicated Song), until we got to Bob:
I, man, am regal - a German am I
Never odd or even
If I had a hi-fi
What?
Madam, I'm Adam
Too hot to hoot
No lemons, no melon
Too bad I hid a boot
Lisa Bonet ate no basil
Warsaw was raw
Was it a car or a cat I saw?
OK, I should have caught it by now, but it's a lot easier seeing the words in print than hearing them sung for the first time. Anyway:
Rise to vote, sir
Do geese see God?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
I quite like that one, but:
Rats live on no evil star
The light dawned, and it was blinding.

As for those readers (or rather Googlers) who were looking to download Poodle Hat: Just buy the darn thing, willya? The CD contains a bonus Quicktime movie with all the songs, extra mixes, the lyrics (yes, he did say automatic circumcisers) and Weird Al's very own home movies.

If you're a nut for a jar of tuna, you need Poodle Hat.

1 I don't know. You think BOB is better than Hardware Store? It's really hard(ware) to say. Don't get me wrong: I LOVE BOB. When it comes to live, though, there's no comparison, in my opinion. No one but our beloved Al has ever contemplated, much less successfully excecuted, singing live a line such as "Tire guages, hamster cages, thermostats and bug deflectors, Trailer hitch demagnetizers, automatic circumcisers". That lyrical prowess combined with the best hammer-and-anvil chorus of the early 21st century is not likely to be outdone, even by Al himself. Plus, why the hell isn't BOB number 11 on the disc?!?!
