A Shropshire Lad

Second greatest time I had
Was when they asked me and my dad
To organise a festival
Along the lines of Donington
We took Chirk Airfield as our site
Booked the bands we thought were right
Received the long-range from the Met
They said it could be very wet
With this in mind, we thought it wise
To call the whole caboodle off
The greatest time I ever had
Was when we didn’t tell the bands

Boom boom boom
Let me hear you say
Hosepipe ban

My childhood, my family
My screwed-up relationships
My girlfriend, my boyfriend
My suicide to come
The drugs hell, the drinks bill
Columbia Hotel rooms
I do believe I’m going to plan
What say we go the Isle of Man

Man Man Man Man Man Man Man
Welsh rockers
Man Man Man
Welsh rockers
Man Man Man
Welsh rockers

The Charlie in Bali
The Drake and the Superglue
The oneness in Stromness
The hits and the myths
These hand towels belong to my Islamic landlord

Achtung, Edwardian lampoon
Oh no, my head feels like sponge
