"Formed A Band" as written by and Chris Ward Ian Wilson....
Formed a band, we formed a band, look at us, we formed a band x 4
Honey pie, I don't know when it started, stop buying your albums from the supermarket.
They only sell records that have charted, and Art Brut, we've only just started.

And yes, this is my singing voice, it's not irony, it's not Rock & Roll,
We're just talking, to the Kids.

Formed a band, we formed a band, look at us, we formed a band x 4
We're gonna be the band that writes the song that makes Israel and Palestine get along.
We're gonna write a song as universal as happy Birthday, that makes sure everybody knows that

Everything is going to be OK, we're going to take that song
And we're going to play it 8 weeks in a row on Top of the Pops.
Formed a band, we formed a band, look at us, we formed a band x 4
Die your hair black, never look back, my past is my business.

    General CommentThis is a great song... lyrically its a genius...

    "i'm gonna write a song
    that's the universe's 'happy birthday'
    that's gonna make sure that everybody knows
    that everything's gonna be ok
    i am gonna take that song
    and we are gonna play it
    eight weeks in a row
    on top of the pops "

    General CommentOn listening to the intro I thought;
    "my God I wished you hadn't formed a band!"
    But once I'd listened to it properly I loved it! The lyrics are hilarious!

    General Comment"We’re gonna be the band that writes the song, that makes Israel and Palestine get along."

    What an excellent satire for such a humourous song.
