about

This one's based around my girlfriend's favourite phrase. Whenever a friend goes back to a bad relationship (or any relationship) she would announce that they were putting their hand back in the blender. It's a perfect metaphor, and deserved a song.

I was really into my 1966 Farfiza Compact organ when I recorded this, and that's why it sounds like a scary fairground soundtrack. Somehow it's strangely suitable, especially when you add the Pythonesque backing vocals at the end.

lyrics

You're putting your hand in the blender again
Forgetting your own advice
You're putting your hand in the blender again
There are some things you should never do twice

You know how it ended up last time you got it on with that guy
The weeks of listening to Carol King when all you could do was cry
You said if he turned up you'd give him a slap and put the creep in his place
But there you are in the corner quietly attached to his face

You're putting your hand in the blender again
Forgetting your own advice
You're putting your hand in the blender again
There are some things you should never do twice

I can't really see what you're up to as he sneaks his arm up your back
Maybe you're finding the prime position to launch a surprise attack
But the more I see the more I stop believing all your hype
There's no way you need to straddle a guy to tell him he's not your type

You're putting your hand in the blender again
Forgetting your own advice
You're putting your hand in the blender again
There are some things you should never do twice

The fact that you need to avoid the guy is hardly rocket science
But how can I help it if somehow you've managed to fall for a kitchen appliance?

You're putting your hand in the blender again
Forgetting your own advice
You're putting your hand in the blender again
There are some things you should never do twice
