Cream tangerine and montelimar,
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,
A coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news,
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.
Cool cherry cream and nice apple tart,
I feel your...

    It's about Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. The children are conditioned to accept death by watching people die at the hospital and then having sweets like chocolate éclairs.

    "Death conditioning begins at eighteen months. Every tot spends two mornings a week in a Hospital for the Dying. All the best toys are kept there, and they get chocolate cream on death days. They learn to take dying as a matter of course."
    "Like any other physiological process," put in the Head Mistress professionally.
    Eight o'clock at the Savoy. It was all arranged."

    - Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

    "The brave new world insists that death is a natural and not unpleasant process. There is no old age or visible senility. Children are conditioned at hospitals for the dying and given sweets to eat when they hear of death occurring. This conditioning does not- as it might- prepare people to cope with the death of a loved one or with their own mortality. It eliminates the painful emotions of grief and loss, and the spiritual significance of death, which Huxley made increasingly important in his later novels." "By the time they were back at the end of the ward Linda was dead.
    The Savage stood for a moment in frozen silence, then fell on his knees beside the bed and, covering his face with his hands, sobbed uncontrollably.
    The nurse stood irresolute, looking now at the kneeling figure by the bed (the scandalous exhibition!) and now (poor children!) at the twins who had stopped their hunting of the zipper and were staring from the other end of the ward, staring with all their eyes and nostrils at the shocking scene that was being enacted round Bed 20. Should she speak to him? try to bring him back to a sense of decency? remind him of where he was? of what fatal mischief he might do to these poor innocents? Undoing all their wholesome death-conditioning with this disgusting outcry–as though death were something terrible, as though any one mattered as much as all that! It might give them the most disastrous ideas about the subject, might upset them into reacting in the entirely wrong, the utterly anti-social way.
    She stepped forward, she touched him on the shoulder. "Can't you behave?" she said in a low, angry voice. But, looking around, she saw that half a dozen twins were already on their feet and advancing down the ward. The circle was disintegrating. In another moment … No, the risk was too great; the whole Group might be put back six or seven months in its conditioning. She hurried back towards her menaced charges.
    "Now, who wants a chocolate éclair?" she asked in a loud, cheerful tone.
    "Me!" yelled the entire Bokanovsky Group in chorus. Bed 20 was completely forgotten." ""Just returned," explained Dr. Gaffney, while Bernard, whispering, made an appointment with the Head Mistress for that very evening, "from the Slough Crematorium. Death conditioning begins at eighteen months. Every tot spends two mornings a week in a Hospital for the Dying. All the best toys are kept there, and they get chocolate cream on death days. They learn to take dying as a matter of course."
    "Like any other physiological process," put in the Head Mistress professionally.
    Eight o'clock at the Savoy. It was all arranged." - Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

    Clapton was hanging out with Harrison one night and was talking about how hard he found songwriting. George countered that it wasn't that hard, and proceeded to write Savoy Truffle on the spot using a box of chocolates they were snacking on.

    All I can say is that because I kept singing this song over and over in my head while watching the 19070 Scottish Cup Final between Aberdeen and Celtic at Hampden, I knew that Aberdeen would win. And they did, 3-1. I kept that song going all through the game, and even though I am not an Aberdonian I helped them win the game. In fact, they have me to thank for winning the Cup. My pal, Leonard, was there too and he will corroborate this. What the song means is another matter, it's actually a bit daft, montelimar ad coconut fudge and all that jazz.

    This song was written by George about his friend Eric Clapton, who had bad teeth.

    This is about arguments and the munchies.
