I saw this group tonight on The Tonight Show and they were great but the lyrics cracked me up. The vocals were really good--if you put straight lyrics to this it would be a pop hit or something. I hope people are able to appreciate the quirky lyrics. Here they are:

Artist: Ludo lyrics
Album: You're Awful, I Love You
Year: 2008
Title: Love Me Dead

Love me cancerously
Like a salt-sore soaked in the sea.
'High-maintenance' means
You're a gluttonous queen
Narcissistic and mean.
Kill me romantically
Fill my soul with vomit
Then ask me for a piece of gum.
Bitter and dumb
You're my sugarplum.
You're awful, I love you!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

You're a faith-healer on T.V.
You're an office park without any trees
Corporate and cold
Gushing for gold
Leave me alone.
You suck so passionately
You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature
finger-bangin' my heart
You call me up drunk
Does the fun ever start?
You're hideous and sexy!


Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!


Love me cancerously
How's your new boy?
Does he know about me?
You've got the mark of the beast.
You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!


Wha' 'bout that sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!

Reminds me a bit of Ani DiFranco's "Used to You."
