about

Dorian's Organ Stratford Upon Avon, UK

Hey you beautiful people. My name is Dorian and I like to play with my organ, in public, for at least 45 minutes at a time. And yes people like to watch. Why? They like the way it makes them feel inside baby. I'm hoping to play at the wedding of Duke Theseus of Athens to the Amazonian Hippolyta. Search out there for #dream40 for more beautiful work people. Do it! ... more

Track Name: The Sword of Theseus
“The Sword of Theseus”
By Dorian’s Organ

Oh some swords are long and thin
Some swords are short and thick
Some swords just plunge right in
Some swords don’t make a nick.

Oh he wooed her with his sword
Now he’ll wed her with his soul
She’s the scabbard for this Lord
She’s the banner on his pole.

His sword is known throughout the lands
So big he has to take it in two hands
It’s soft as silk, but hard as steel
It’s made a lot of Athens squeal.

Theseus
Theseus
With his sword he is a genius

But his lady wears a shield
Her gate is locked and barred
Amazon doors never yield
Unless you bang so very hard.

Oh he wooed her with his blade
And now he’ll take her for a ride
Wedding fruit will soon be laid
So cut the peach and taste inside.

His sword is known throughout the lands
So big he has to take it in two hands
It’s soft as silk, but hard as steel
It’s made a lot of Athens squeal.

His sword is known throughout the worlds
Loved by himself, by men and by the girls
It’s hurt a few, it’s settled scores
He even stuck it in the Minotaur

Theseus
Theseus
With his sword he is a genius
Track Name: Let Me Be Your Lion Tonight
“Let Me Be Your Lion Tonight”
Dorian’s Organ

I’m clawing
I’m pawing
I’m roaring
I’m roaring for you
I’m clawing
That’s right
Let me your lion tonight

Well I tracked you to Africa
I came down cus I missed ya
You and me we’re just so right
So let me be your lion tonight

You’re the only cat for me
So come babe sit in my tree
No I’m not afraid of your bite
So let me be your lion tonight

Sometimes when I’m hit with moonbeams
Though you’re far, I meet you in dreams

You see you are my lioness,
The sweetest thing in a dress
You can pounce and you can purr
You look great just wearing fur

Baby I want you to join my pride
That’s right, I want you by my side
So come on, take my paw
Babe I’m gonna make your roar.

I’m clawing
I’m pawing
I’m roaring
I’m roaring for you
I’m clawing
That’s right
Let me your lion tonight
Track Name: An Ass By Moonlight
“An Ass By Moonlight”
By Dorian’s Organ

I was a man
A man with a plan
A plan to be good
A plan to be great
So I prayed to the moon
Raise me up from my class
But then came my doom
I was changed to an ass.

Oh I had a dream
A mare in the night
I was a donkey
An Ass by Moonlight!

I was an ass
But an ass with some class
I made love to a queen
Or that’s how it did seem.
We lay in her bed
And ate oats and cold cuts
She kissed my smooth head
And fetched me new nuts.

Oh I had a dream
A mare in the night
I was a donkey
An Ass by Moonlight!
Yes for once in my life
The future looked bright!

But as the dawn broke
The spell seemed to fade
And when I awoke
I was ‘lone in the glade

I was a man
A man with a plan
A plan to be good
A plan to be great
So I prayed to the sun
Let this dream never pass
Translate me again
So I’m always an ass

Oh give me that dream
The dream oh so fine
I’ll be a donkey
An Ass for all time!
Track Name: Yesterday I Didn’t Love You, But Today I Do
“Yesterday I Didn’t Love You, But Today I Do”
Dorian’s Organ

Yesterday I didn’t love you, but today I do
Maybe the fairies made me feel this way for you
Yesterday I wished that you would go so far away
I tried to put you off, I even told you I was gay
Yesterday I thought you were as ugly as a bear
And told you that your face looked just like a derriere
Yesterday I thought you were a shrew, a crone, a hag
But now all I can think of is how much I’d like to…

Love you
With all of my heart
Love you
With all of my parts
So love me
Like the lions loved Daniel
Love me
Oh, won’t you be my spaniel

Yesterday I thought you were mental and a pest
I was hoping the police would put you under arrest
Yesterday I looked at you, it made me want to chuck
But now I think of you and all I want to do is…

Love you
Etc.

It was something in the night that came and changed my mind
Something like a dream, a wish, a spell I can’t define
But when my eyes did open, you were the first thing that I saw
You’re like a secret cupboard and I want to open up your drawers.

Love you
Etc.
Track Name: One Heart, One Bed, Two Bosoms
“One Heart, One Bed, Two Bosoms”
Dorian’s Organ

Spoken:
Baby, we’re lost in this forest.
So let’s wait here till the break of day…
and let one turf serve as bedding for us both.

Come now my darling
It’s getting late
Lie down beside me
Until we awake

Let’s share this pillow
You’ll come to no harm
Under this willow
You’ll feel my charm

One heart, One Bed
One Man, One Woman
One Heart, One Bed
And Two Bosoms

Oh please my dear
Can you see my cheeks flush
Let me stay near you
Let me sleep in your bush

Please answer the riddle
Of my adolescence
Please play on my fiddle
And cure my tumescence.

One heart, One Bed
One Man, One Woman
One Heart, One Bed
And Two Bosoms

When I first met you, I heard my heart skip
I hoped that you’d love me, that I’d kiss your lips
Now that we’re promised, let’s share this sweet bower
Please pretty baby, show me your flower.

One heart, One Bed
One Man, One Woman
One Heart, One Bed
And Two Bosoms
Track Name: Ode to a Misogynist
“Ode to a Misogynist”
Dorian’s Organ

Please be my wife
You should be sufficient
Love is for life
Except when it isn’t

Let’s get married in the moonshine
Let’s get wedded in the June time
We are meant to be together, forever
Till I discover another lover
Let’s get married in the city
I’ll stick with you, if you stay pretty
You’ll be everything I could wish for
Until I marry your little sister

Please be my wife
You should be sufficient
Love is for life
Except when it isn’t

Let’s get married drinking oozo
You’re the one, the one that I choose-o
You stole my heart, I settled the score
I stole your body and I started a war.
Let’s get married by the water
By the way do you have a daughter?
If you do I might just end it all now
And go off with her you stupid old cow.

Please be my wife
You should be sufficient
Love is for life
Except when it isn’t

You sneaked love in like a Trojan horse
But it will still end in a messy divorce.
