Deconstructing 'Clair'

Remember "Clair," the 1970s pop hit by Gilbert O'Sullivan?

You'll never listen to it the same way again.

Yes, this is it, folks. The weirdest of all the weird ‘70s hits. And get your pitchforks and torches ready because this one is so weird, you’ll suspect it’s criminal. Or at least evidence of criminal, deeply immoral activity. Seriously. It’s hard to look at these lyrics and not wonder why Scotland Yard didn’t pay Mr. O’Sullivan a visit.
