* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Invoked in "Blody Rotten Audience":
-->And when I sing contemporary, me heart and soul is pure
-->I must be bloody brilliant, cause my writing's so obscure
-->My hero's Music/LeonardCohen, I dig him perfectly
-->But I must be so much better, because no one here digs me!

* HaveAGayOldTime: "Silly Slang Song" complains about how once innocent slang terms changed their meaning:
-->Do you remember the day that if you said that you were gay,
-->It meant with joy that you could sing and shout,
-->A fairy was enchanting and dressing up and camping,
-->Was something you did with the scouts.
-->That carefree age when an urgent case of aids,
-->Was powdered milk we sent to the Sahara,
-->A fruit was something nice to eat a poof was something for your feet,
-->And a queen was an old tart in a tiara.

* ShoutOut: At the end of "Little Gomez" the singer goes to the pet shop to try and buy a replacement for Gomez, but the shop owner (who "loved corny puns") told him [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yes!_We_Have_No_Bananas "Yes, we have no chihuahuas!"]]
