about

Birds do it, Bees do it…turns out even bombs do it…there are male ones, and female ones…if it’s the hollow half of the plumbing that makes the first move, it’s female. If it’s the solid part that starts the explosive (or implosive) process, it’s male. The Atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, was called Little Boy, but only fairly recently did a researcher (John Coster-Mullen) discover it was actually a Big Mama.

Big Mama is Inside-out Rockabilly with blues-pop flourishes and a Tom-Lehrer style lyrical spin.

lyrics

LYRIC:

One's concave and one's convex But it wasn't just any old sex Who was dad and who was mom It's the secret of sexing the bomb

Yes from two Little Boy blew And they thought they knew for certain who was who That the male had led the dance In the cylinder - receptor romance

So much for swagger the truth is a dagger Hidden half a hundred years The closet was locked until somebody talked

When you get right down to it It takes a bullet and a trigger to do it Each with its uranium half's what it takes to make critical mass You assume the missionary position Would be the shape of anatomic coition Tell me if you want me to stop Hiroshima had a woman on top


All these years the secret slept
It was Eve who split the atom while God wept
Behind the man behind the gun
Is a temptress and her will must be done

Just like a woman she's in the market
She's gonna get her man
A hollow projectile hot for a target


When you get right down to it
It takes a giver and receiver to do it
The gender of the symmetry game's behind the bio-ilogical blame
Giving birth to only death and destruction
Is the antithesis of reproduction
It's a hella metaphorical flop
Hiroshima had a woman on top

The siren sung she blew Eden to kingdom come
He bit the apple the deed was done
Mama Superior jumped the gun she did the straddle
Adam's bomb had her in the saddle

So blame Pandora defier destroyer
See the blood upon her hands
She made him do it she put him up to it

When you get right down to it
It takes a bullet and a trigger to do it
Each with its uranium half's what it takes to make critical mass
You assume the missionary position
Would be the shape of anatomic coition
Tell me if you want me to stop
Hiroshima had a woman on top
When you get right down to it
It takes a bullet and a trigger to do it....
