Arabian Nights

The scene in Lawrence of Arabia I remember most starts with the camera panning up, which reveals that Lawrence is surrounded by men, close like a huddle. He looks up at the sky, and the panning camera, and says with conviction, “I love Arabia.” The way I’d say I like coffee or blowjobs.

This is how I will remember the now deceased Peter O’Toole. Which is unfair to the actor, since it was Lawrence himself that was sexually unusual, in that he denied ever having it.

The First of September!

SUCK ON THIS, SQUAREHEAD
I hear you got a six inch guarantee of unilateral security
Well me and Stalin, we just signed a mutual non-aggression pact
I’m gonna put CASE WHITE into effect
Prepare yourself for a CONFLICT baby
I’ll cook you a stew you’ll choke on
I tore up the VERSAILLES TREATY
Today is the FIRST of SEPTEMBER
See you at your graveside, baby
I’ll meet you in Poland, baby
I want to PUMP you FULL of BURNING LEAD
Cause six million casualties
Well I gave you a lot of slack – but all I get from you is FLAK
I’m gonna put CASE WHITE into effect
Prepare yourself for a conflict baby
Passing information on to HIGH COMMAND
We have ways of making you TALK
Today is the FIRST of SEPTEMBER
See you at your FUNERAL, baby
I’ll meet you in Poland, baby
I hear you got a six inch guarantee of unilateral security
Well me and Stalin, we just signed a mutual non-aggression pact
I’m gonna put CASE WHITE into effect
Prepare yourself for a conflict, baby
I’ll cook you a stew you’ll choke on
I tore up the VERSAILLES TREATY
TODAY IS THE FIRST OF SEPTEMBER
See you at your graveside, baby
I’LL MEET YOU IN POLAND, BABY
SEE YOU AT YOUR GRAVESIDE, BABY
I’LL MEET YOU IN POLAND, BABY
