"Bed And Breakfast Man" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
Well, there's a man I know
At least I used to years ago
I didn't really mind
He used to come round all the time

Of course he had to be fed
I had to give him a bed
He used to kip on my sofa
They used to call him a loafer

I've heard he's changed a lot since then
But some of his ways he just can't mend

Till the other day
When he'd offer to pay
He didn't like his bed
He earned all he'd ever had

He didn't have no shame
He was a master at his game
He never showed his hand
He was the bed and breakfast man

Oh, he was, he was the bed and breakfast man
He was, he was the bed and breakfast man
He was, he was the bed and breakfast man
He was, he was the bed and breakfast man
He was, he was the bed and breakfast man
He was, he was the bed and breakfast man
He was, he was the bed and breakfast man

    General CommentThis song is amazing! It is amazing that it wasn't released as a single. It's really catchy as well. Madness are one of the best bands ever.

    General CommentFive stars from me too. In fact, to me this is the quintessential Madness track, in spite of not being a single.

    Effective simplicity, Madness's trademark

    General CommentIn the Bed and Breakfast Man Clip Bedders wears clothes I can easily see on a young Brian Setzer.
    The Fifties and its John Wayne Stuff were back.....

    In the My Girl clip intro my dear Bedford has a giant
    cowboy hat on his head. That hat was also part of
    the clip for Shut Up, in the middle bit where you can
    hear Western-movies guitar and gunshots.

    In those years Bedford had "Walk Don't Run" by the Ventures amongst his ten favourite songs.

    The Shadows had a better John Wayne-ish tune
    called "Apache".

    What link between Madness and The Shadows?
    ....well...... They all liked to wear ties and suits.

    Back to the bed and breakfast:
    You don't see that often in a girl but I want to say:
    I'm a loafer. A shameless one and all.

    General CommentI had too much to drink last night.

    There are no cowboy hats in Shut Up. I'm trying to
    figure out where that idea came from.

    General CommentNo I haven't tried at all.
    I was watching in loop those 9 seconds in the clip where Bedders' playing and chewing happily.
    I would transform into a Fender if that was the only
    way for him to put his hands on me...

    Exit the maddening groupie.
