Family Planning for the Virgin Mary

I’ve listened to this song called Zoom! (by the band Super Furry Animals) many times, but it was only today that I decided to take a look at the lyrics (as they mumble through their song, it takes more than listening to know what they’re saying). Anyway, here’s the part of the song that I loved best:

Saw the Virgin Mary,
She was crying blood,
Tears congregate
Into a mighty flood,
Gave her some directions
to a specialist,
An eye doctor to help her cyst,
She took the wrong turn,
to the family planning.

Sounds really good with the music, as they totally deadpan their way through it. Fantastic stuff.
