Loved her


#3

That naughty Serge Gainsbourg


#4

Cracking song, that. Heard it on 6Music ages ago and was amazed I’d never heard it before, it was so good. Big dirty bassline…


#5

Also responsible for the best and cleverest Eurovision winner ever

Also written by Gainsbourg and to quote wikipedia:

“As is common with Gainsbourg’s lyrics, the words are filled with double meanings, wordplay, and puns. The title can be translated as “wax doll, rag doll” (a floppy doll stuffed with bran or chaff) or as “wax doll, sound doll” (with implications that Gall is a “singing doll” controlled by Gainsbourg).”

It’s just a song about lollipops. I don’t know what you mean. :expressionless:

Yes, you only have to look at the (translated) lyrics to see how innocent it all really is:

Annie loves lollipops
Anise flavored lollipops.
Anise flavored lollipops
Of Annie
Give to her kisses
A anise flavor.
When the candy stick
With anise flavor
Goes down Annie’s throat
She is in heaven.
For some pense, Annie
Has her anise flavored lollipops
They have the color of her big eyes
The color of happy days
Annie loves lollipops
Anise flavored lollipops.
Anise flavored lollipops
Of Annie
Give to her kisses
A anise flavor
When she has on her tongue
Only the small stick left,
She took to her heels
And go back to the drugstore.
For some pense, Annie
Has her anise flavored lollipops
They have the color of her big eyes
The color of happy days
When the candy stick
With anise flavor
Goes down Annie’s throat
She is in heaven.
