Any visitor to Mao Mao Chong has probably seen the song lyric painted above the bar by owner Stephen Rocard. Well, the times they are a-changin’, and so is that lyric, and we are looking for suggestions as to what should go up next.
Maybe it should be “She’s filing her nails while they’re dragging the lake” from “Watching the Detectives” by Elvis Costello, or “And the whole damn place goes crazy twice / And it’s once for the devil and once for Christ” from “Closing Time” by Leonard Cohen, or even “Mix-a-Lot’s in trouble / Beggin’ for a piece of that bubble” from “Baby Got Back“?
Well, perhaps none of those. But let us know in the comments section what you think should go in that space and you have the chance to win two prizes. First, the pride of walking into Mao Mao Chong and seeing your recommended line on the wall. (Imagine being on a date and saying, “Look up there. See that ‘And I was like baby, baby, baby, oh / Like baby, baby, baby, no / Like baby, baby, baby, oh’? That’s mine!”). Second, a bottle of Martin Miller’s gin, originally donated by Liquid Luxury and won in the Charlie Sheen Celebrity Pub Crawl by Euclid, who “paid it forward”.
Leave your entry / entries by 5 PM on November 1 and we’ll select a winner. And if you would like your favorite song lyrics hanging above your bed, desk, sofa or jacuzzi, talk to Rocard about commissioning a piece.
