Show Me

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

Could it be "buy me rock and roll"?

That makes sense since Barbie is also a doll

Basically, victims of abuse, usually young children who can't talk about it, are given a doll and asked to 'show me on the doll where you were touched'
Jeeeezuz, wish I'd never asked. Thank you for explaining Charlie, but tbh I'm sorry for asking now. If that's the lyric, then it may well be the archest lyric he's written / sung to date, especially when there's a concert hall full of folk singing along. Wow.
While Charlie is completely correct about the origin of the phrase, just to clarify Planet Dave's interpretation: the term is often used on social media with a more sarcastic/condescending intent (a meme originating from South Park).

For example, you could respond to a new thread complaining about the lack of a new Sisters album as follows:

So, without trying to start interpreting the lyrics before we know them all (although that's never stopped us before), the chances of it being a direct reference to child abuse investigations are low.

I had to check on that. They were all cropped into a square image on a black sleeve, but only Walk Away had a defined border.
UUTG sort of had I suppose

Yes of course, i'm aware of the meme side too, and Andrew's lyrics are always multi-layered and humerous, so it's not an explanation, just wanted to fill in the origin!

Lyrics to me "Show Me On The Doll" are:

Show Me On The Doll

Show me isolation
Show me disintegration
Show me reality
Show me stupid on TV

Show me pop music
Barbie rock'n roll
Show me in translation
Show me on the doll

Love I love us
Love I love us
Show me

Show me isolation
Show me disintegration
Show me your reality
Show me stupid on TV

Show me pop music
Show me Barbie rock'n roll
Show me in translation
Show me on the doll

Regulated
Medicated
Love I like

Love I love

Insinuated

Show me

Show me isolation
Show me disintegration
Show me your reality
Show me stupid on TV

Show me pop music
Barbie rock'n roll
Show me in translation
show me on the doll

Show me on the doll
Show me on the doll
Show me on the doll

Show me in translation

Show me on the doll

Show me

Show me barbie rock'n roll

Show me translation on the doll
Do you agree? :innocent:

I hear "love like love", but the rest looks right.

I hear it as "love like love, but simulated" each time so far.

Which could sort of make sense if the theme, with the dolls, TV and the rest, has to do with some kind of disconnect from the real thing.

It is for sure "Love like love" after i heard the most clear vocals of Show me on the Doll so far, which is


Show me on the doll, Oslo 28.09 video taken by Ingo

I believe someone can bring up the whole song after that and the previous vids :D :notworthy:
