The Slits - Vindictive

Trying to decipher...

Vindictive, the pressures on, don't look to me
Vindictive, the pressures on, don't throw it away
You're wasting your words, don't expect to look in

I know you're in tight, but

Let's do the split - oh, shit on it!
Let's do a flit - I spit on it!
Let's do the split - oh, shit on it!
Let's do a flit - I spit on it!

Nagging aloud, no, you're so wrong
Shouting so loud and then, you took so long
You find your place, I'll find mine Ah-ah-ahh!

******

Nobody's safe, yeah, you heard what I said
He swings both ways, then acts like a man
I walked out the door, he stood there and cried
I care no more, but he’ll still be my guy


:huh:

I've never listened too closely to the words—all I know is the "spit on it, shit on it" line, which seemed the key punk line anyway.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

Here's what I got from the Peel session version.

Vindictive I'm precious guys - don't look at me
Vindictive I'm precious - don't try it on me
Your wasting your words - don't expect to come in
I know that it hurts - for my love that went mad

Vindictive I'm precious guys - don't look at me
Vindictive I'm precious - don't try it on me
Your wasting your words don't expect to come in

Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it
Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - an I'll spit on it

Nagging your partner - now you're so wrong
Shouting so loud - and then they dance along
You find your place - I'll find mine

Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it
Let's do the split - an I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it

Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it
Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Spit on it, shit on it, spit on it, shit on it

Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it
Let's do the snitch - an I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - an I'll shit on it

Nobody's safe, you heard what I said
He swings by the way, practical man
I walked out the door, he stood there and cried
I care no more, but he see me last night

Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it
Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it

Let's do the split - I'll shit on it
Let's do the split - I'll spit on it

Now this isn't quite on the level of "Got a rake? Sure" but has some funny moments...

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Yep. I asked her why The Jam would sing about Tango Madness and she thought it was something to do with the Tango Man.

Is the Tango Man some kind of Limey urban legend, maybe a Geordie who steals children and bakes them into pot pies?

The Tango Man was blamed for causing deafness in children across the UK.
