(My) Fallout Filly (With The Atomic Kiss): Chris Cerf [1961]

If Tom Lehrer ever went electric, this rocking satirical tune might have been the result.

It is no wonder that the lyrics to Fallout Filly are so amusing because Chris Cerf, son of Random House president and TV panel show mainstay, Bennett Cerf, was its co-writer. Cerf was also vice-president of that proving ground for American comedy, The Harvard Lampoon. Cerf is an author, record and television producer, editor, composer and humorist whose work has appeared on 'The National Lampoon Radio Hour,' 'Saturday Night Live,' and many PBS educational programs. Cerf is the co-founder of the educational television production company, Sirius Thinking, Ltd.

LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION:
(My) Fallout Filly (With The Atomic Kiss): Chris Cerf [1961]

(Wind rushing or rocket launching, fades out)

Spoken: Here we are on side two,
Now if you happen to be playing the record for the first time and haven't heard side one, we'd much rather you flip the record over and heard both sides in the right order. Otherwise, carry on.

Sung:
Well nobody's likes my baby
‘Cause she shoots out gamma rays
But when I see her fluorescent eyes
I fall into a daze

‘Cause she's my fallout filly
With the atomic kiss, yea-hah!
So we'll hole up together
In a shelter of eternal bliss

Well, I wouldn't say my baby's exactly
Popular with a crowd
‘Cause when she opens her mouth to speak
Out comes a mushroom cloud

But she's my fallout filly
With the atomic kiss, yea-hah!
So we'll hole up together
In a shelter of eternal bliss

Well she sets my Geiger counter heart a-tickin'
When she does the nuclear jive
Radiated women in molecules
Of U 235

But she's my fallout filly
With the atomic kiss, yea-hah!
So we'll hole up together
In a shelter of eternal bliss

Well when she told me that she loved me for the rest of her days
Her words banished all my fears
‘Cause her half-life is 4.67
Times 10 to the 9th power here

Yes, and she's my fallout filly
With the atomic kiss, yea-hah!
So we'll hole up together
In a shelter of eternal bliss

Well, we'll hole up together
In a shelter of eternal bliss
Yes, we'll hole up together
In a shelter of eternal bliss
