Fun to Say

rfv-coverSome words are fun to say. And if you’ve never seen or heard the Vestibule’s performance of “Bulbous Bouffant”, you are missing out on a ton of them.

The premise is that a word lover approaches a man waiting for the bus and strikes up a conversation. In the fullness of time, a third man joins the conversation and they all start throwing out fun words to say.

Here are the lyrics:

Man 1: Hi.
Man 2: Hello.
Man 1: Are you waiting for the bus?
Man 2: Uh, yes I am, actually.
Man 1: Hm.
Man 1: I noticed you’re not wearing any GALOSHES.
Man 2: Uh, no I’m not…it’s uh…it’s sunny out…uh…no need for galoshes.
Man 1: I’M wearing galoshes.
Man 2: Hm.
Man 1: GALOSHES.
Man 2: Uh huh.
Man 1: Did’ja read the paper today?
Man 2: Uh, no, I haven’t had a chance.
Man 1: Did you read the thing about the ESKIMOS?
Man 2: No.
Man 1: Well the article was saying that the Eskimos will eat the FAT from the whale.
Man 2: Oh, yeah.
Man 1: Do you know what that’s called?
Man 2: Uh, no, uh, I don’t.
Man 1: BLUBBER.
Man 2: Oh, right.
Man 1: BLUBBER.
Man 2: Yeah, blubber.
Man 1: That’s what it’s called.
Man 2: Uh huh.
Man 1: BLUBBER.
Man 2: Right.
Man 1: The Eskimos eat the BLUBBER.
Man 2: Uh huh.
Man 1: And the BLUBBER will come from different kinds of whales, you know?
Man 2: Oh, yeah.
Man 1: Sometimes it will come from a Beluga whale.
Man 2: Uh huh.
Man 1: BALOOGAH!
Man 2: Right, yeah.
Man 1: Heh heh. They don’t wear galoshes.
Man 2: Who the, the whales?
Man 1: NOOOOOOO. The ESKIMOS.
Man 2: Oh no. That’s right, they don’t.
Man 1: They wear MUKLUKS!
Man 2: Uh huh.
Man 1: MUKLUKS!
Man 2: That’s right; mukluks.
Man 1: MAAAAAAAKLAAAAAAAAKKKKKSSS.
Man 2: Yeah…mukluks.
Man 1: Say it again.
Man 2: Mukluks.
Man 1: Say it LOUDER.
Man 2: MUK–LUKS!
Man 1: Um hmm…good eh?
Man 2: Yeah, it is a good one…I didn’t want to say it but uhh….I like it…
Man 1: Say say say GALOSHES.
Man 2: Galoshes.
Man 1: Heh heh…it’s good, eh?
Man 2: Yeah, it’s good.
Man 1: Galoshes!
Man 2: Galoshes!
Man 1: Balooooooooogah!
Man 2: Baloogah.
Man 1: Blubber blubber blubber blubber…
Man 2: Blubber MUKLUK!
Man 1: Blubber…BALOOGAH!

Man 3: Uh, excuse me.
Man 2: Ahem.
Man 3: Sorry, um….I didn’t mean to interrupt whatever it was you were doing there…
Man 2: Oh nah…it’s OK!
Man 3: Uh, ok. I just wanted to know if this is where the bus stops?
Man 2: Uh yeah, ah…it should be here any minute actually.
Man 3: OH, I see. Well, sorry to disturb you.
Man 2: That’s ok, we were just….uhhhh…..
{long pause}
Man 1: Sir.
Man 3: Yes?
Man 1: PPPPSSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTT!
Man 3: Yeah.
Man 1: Look over there.
Man 3: Across the street?
Man 1: Yeah, yeah yeah.
Man 3: Um-huh.
Man 1: See that LADY?
Man 3: Yes.
Man 1: What kind of a hairstyle does she have?
Man 3: Uh, that looks like a bouffant.
Man 1: YES. A BOOOOOFFANT!
Man 3: Yes, a bouffant.
Man 2: Uh, actually, I…I couldn’t help noticing that myself, it’s sort-of what you might call a, a bulbous bouffant.
Man 3: Yes, a bulbous bouffant.
Man 1: BULBOUS BOUFFANT.
Man 3: Bouffant.
Man 1: BLUBBER
Man 2: GALOSHES!!!
Man 1: Heh heh. Mukluks!
Man 2: Bulbous bouffant.
Man 1: Mukluk mukluk. heh heh.
Man 3: MACADAMIA.
Man 1  & 2: Ooooooohhhhhhhhh. heh heh.
Man 3: Macadamia.
Man 1: Ga-ze-bo!
Man 2: Bulbous bouffant.
Man 3: Macadamia.
At this point, it breaks completely into a song… so I’ll leave off here.

Here’s an alternate version that I found in video form. Of course, in this version, they don’t actually say “Bulbous Bouffant”. So it goes.

Anyway, what is your favorite word to say?
