about

A phrase I heard often in the summers of my Liverpool upbringing. I don't know whether it's a common expression elsewhere. A shorter version of this was made for single release (March 29th, 2010)

lyrics

The sun is cracking the flags
Shoving the nags o' the world back underneath their stones
The sun is mugging the rain
Making it plain to the world, she's out to ease them bones

Sun in Valletta - listening to Frank & to Captain Beefheart
Makes me feel better
Since I split up with my childhood sweetheart

Chorus

Fly to the Algarve - can't forget how she used to tease me
Makes me feel sex-starved
Only the weather can't wait to please me

Chorus

Sail in to Rio - served with papers by two hyenas
Dampens my brio
She's taking me to the bloody cleaners

Chorus

In Nicosia - smash the phone in a fit of frenzy
Just miss Maria
Walk over, kiss her, get married Wednesday

Chorus

Leave me bathing, gently...........
Leave me bathing, gently……….
Why don’t you leave me bathing gently this evening……?

Chorus

Oh-ho-may-he, oh-ho-may-he
(Yellow rumpled dufflecoat)
I KNOW
