2 'Mary Long'

(Gillan, Glover) - (Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice) - z albumu Deep Purple 'Who do we think we are'

'Mary Long' to rezultat polaczenia imion Mary Whitehouse oraz Lord Longford, samozwanczych straznikow moralnosci publicznej w Anglii w latach siedemdziesiatych. Mary powiedziala 'Johnnemu' (to Johnny Speight scenarzysta telewizyjny ktory sprawil, ze obrzydzenie wzielo caly establishment) aby nie pisal takich smieci .strata publicznych pieniedzy BBC (to oni wykazali sie dzielna odpowiedzialnoscia) jest utrzymywana wlasnie z publicznych pieniedzy. Ci ludzie sprzeciwiali sie wszystkiemu co uznawali za 'niefortunne'. Byli to swoisci faszysci, trolle internetowi tamtych czasow; nie wiele sie zmienilo oprocz tego ze ci obecnie zadufani w sobie uzywaja komicznego 'niepoprawne'. Roger i ja oczywiscie nie sugerowalismy ze zarowno Whitehouse jak i Longoford znizyliby sie do topienia kociakow czy malowania garffiti na scianie toaelty, ale powiew hipokryzji emanujacy z ambony swietoszkowatych zawsze jest i zawsze byl zlowieszczy.

Mary Long

( Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice)

Mary Long is a hypocrite
She does all the things that she tells us not to do
Selling filth from a corner shop
And knitting patterns to the high street queue
She paints roses even makes 'em smell good
And then she draws titties on the khazi wall
Drowns kittens just to get a thrill
And writes sermons in the Sunday Chronicle

How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long?
When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long?

Mary told Johnny not to write such trash
Said it was a waste of public money
She made a fuss they made apologies
But everybody thought the show was funny
When the nation knew you had children
It came as such a surprise
We really didn't know you'd had it in you
How you did it we can only surmise

How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long?
When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long?

Mary Long you're not alone
But you're a long way behind our times
What we do in full frontal view
Is more honest than your clean up mind
What I'm saying Mary Long is
When you can spare a minute
Go find your friend the Porny Lord
Dig yourself a hole and jump in it

How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long?
When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long
