Prag Vec at the Melkweg

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who went to work
And he told us of his life
Building space ships on forty pounds a week

And he’d take us all for rides
And we’d do some serious drugs in
On board the Enterprise Allowance
We could do whatever we liked

And we could go to a Meadowlark Lemon seminar
Be at the Tony Monopoly incident
Sort a strobe for Conny Plank
Shop around with Johnny Kwango

If you would come with me to Dawlish
I’d be like Stadler’s caddie for ya

And we’d return in time for tea
And our dads would not have inklings
Said we’d been to organise a Frisbee competition
With the Gypsies down the road…

Do you want to swap a hundred Spandex overcoats
For the mental age of a haversack
It’s been like this since we saw
PragVEC at the Melkweg

Oh I doctored my edible thong with listeria
Now my only hope is that your offspring walks backwards
Just as I expected the shopkeeper appeared
And then the band began to play
