Florence + The Machine – Cornflake Girl (Tori Amos Cover) [Recorded At RAK Studios, London]



Lyrics:
[Verse 1: Tori Amos] Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution
Hanging with the raisin girls
She’s gone to the other side
Givin’ us the old heave ho
Things are getting kind of gross
And I go it’s sleepy time

[Pre-Chorus: Tori Amos] This is not really, this, a-this
This is not really happening

[Chorus: Tori Amos] You bet your life it is
You bet your life it is
Oh honey, you bet your life
It’s a peel out the watchword
Just peel out the watchword

[Verse 2: Tori Amos] She knows what’s goin on
Seems we got a cheaper feel now
All the sweeteaze are gone
Gone to the other side
With my encyclopedia
They musta paid her a nice price
She’s putting on her string bean love

[Pre-Chorus: Tori Amos] This is not really, this, this
This is not really happening

[Chorus: Tori Amos] You bet your life it is
You bet your life it is
Oh honey, you bet your life
It’s a peel out the watchword
Just peel out the watchword

[Interlude: Tori Amos] Never was a cornflake girl
Thought that was a good solution

[Refrain: Tori Amos] Rabbit, where’d you put the keys girl?
Rabbit, where’d you put the keys girl?
A-ha, rabbit, where’d you put the keys
Oh yes, rabbit, where’d you put the keys
Where’d you put the keys, girl?

[Bridge: Merry Clayton] And the man with the golden gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the man with the golden gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the man with the golden gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
And the man with the golden gun
Thinks he knows so much
Thinks he knows so much, yeah
Yeah

[Refrain: Tori Amos] Rabbit, where’d you put the keys girl?
Oh yes, rabbit, where’d you put the keys girl?
All this time, rabbit, where’d you put the keys, oh yeah
Rabbit, where’d you put the keys girl?

  4. I love them both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Anyone have any idea what the instrument that sounds like a high pitched whine is called? It's eerie and haunting and I love it.

  6. I don't know which curse is better. If it's my favorite from Torri Amos. Anyway, I'm starting to talk to this singer and I like it.

  7. Not only did Florence straight crush this, but so did the band. Hands down best tori cover

  9. So much attention is give to Florence and her vocals …no doubt …girl has some serious range but let’s not forget the amazing talent of the band . They create a mighty sound !

  10. CHILLLLLLLLS! So good. You can tell she loved Tori.

  11. Two exact opposite sides of the heart, with one center. Interesting symbol. Love this cover sm

  12. WOW! I was just listening to Tori Amos singing this yesterday and then stumbled across this FATM version. I can't get over Florence' voice.

  13. Florence singing Tori!!!! I can die now

  14. Never was a cornflake girl
    Thought it was a good solution
    Hanging with the raisin girls
    She's gone to the other side

    And I go at sleepy time

    This is not really
    This, this, this is not really happening

    Rabbit, where'd you put the keys, girl

  15. Clash of the titans. Nothing left to say…

  16. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  17. The cover we didn't know we needed

  18. I'd love to hear Florence cover some Kate Bush songs. She'd nail something like Under Ice for sure.

  19. Florence and Tori are on my top female singers so this cover is something very special

  20. Wow.. My current favorite covering my original favorite. 💓

  21. I do miss the ethereal western whistle bits from the original. However if anyone could transmit the raw emotion of Tori Amos – Florence would be have been my first bet. If she could do an album of covering mystic performers before her time- it would be a treasured body of work. Her Elton John cover of Tiny Dancer was very well done in addition to her Fleetwood Mac covers. Truly a gifted artist with an unmistakable sound and vocal style. Our generations true Rock Star.

  22. WOOOOOOOW!!!!! MG, FLORENCE IS SO AMAZING!!!! SO BRILLANT COVER!!!!

  23. Holy shit. Goddess covering a Goddess.

  24. isnt tori amos a right winger?

  25. I like this, no doubt, but it is a little disappointing that Florence didn't get the timing right with the 'This is not really happening' – it's off

  26. Wish this cover was on the iTunes Store 😥

  27. her vocals this song make me fall in love with her even more skskks how is she so talented

  28. Great cover, Vocals are great, but I wish they focused on the instruments / mastering more to give it more depth. The instruments seem to lack impact to me. I know it's just a live studio recording, so that's probably why.

  29. where'd you put the keys, girl?

  30. I love this cover.

    In fact, I love any covers of 90's indie music legends from Tori Amos onwards by the new generation of musicians. It doesn't matter if they're covered by Florence or Taylor Swift. It doesn't matter if they're good or bad covers. What matters that today's talents recognize the 90's and owes their influences to them.

  31. Tori Amos is a huge inspiration to Amy Lee (of one of the first bands I was truly obsessed with), and now Florence is covering her <3

  32. I like her voice so much.

  33. Allow me to add “Professional Widow” to the list of Tori covers I’d love for Florence + the Machine to cover.

  34. Those are some strange lyrics!
