Lay Eggy Lay

This song was recorded in 1969 (gasp! the year I was born) by Bob Dylan, but I like Gemma's voice much, much better.  The video is actually a little scary, don't know what they were thinking!  But the song is quite beautiful, so just listen, don't look!

Lay Eggy Lay
Lay Down in that Petri Dish
Ah-ah- aaahh

Lay Eggy Lay
Lay down don't you re-sist
Ahh-ahh aaah

The time has come for you to--meet your sperm
You know you want it, just to a-ffirm!

Lay Eggy Lay
Lay Across that petri dish
Stay Eggy Stay
Stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day
Let me see you make him smile

You look so lovely when you--multiply
And the beauty when you--start to divide

Stay Eggy Stay
Stay with your man awhile

Waited so long for the world to begin
You can have your sperm and fer-til-ize
Why wait any longer for the one you love
When he's in the dish--with you

Lay eggy lay
Lay down in your petri dish
Stay eggy stay
Stay while the night is still ahead

I long to see you in a--human form
I long to reach for you just to a-dore

Stay eggy stay
Stay while the night is still ahead

I'm beginning to worry about you.

That's just, well, wrong on so many levels. Especially the video......I think I took care of those people in the ER once.....

Didn't someone besides Bob do the song, like Neil Diamond or Tom Jones???

I must say, though, that this was near-brilliant:
"You look so lovely when you--multiply
And the beauty when you--start to divide"

Cheering for the zygote in this corner!!!!

Love ya!

I totally agree the video is crap! BUT, can you possibly compare Gemma's voice to Bob Dylan's?? I mean, I started to post his video, but while like a lot of his songs, I can't stand his voice! So rather, I like his songs covered by others.

Your songwriting ability is astounding. Are you absoultely 100% positive you're not Sheryl Crow?

Good luck Puffer and Chicken! I hope every last one of those little eggies divides perfectly so you can have your pick of the litter when transfer day comes. This is so freakin exciting! Only four more days until your nest is full of eggs!!! Holy crap!
