"Red Receiver" as written by and Adele Bethel Scott Paterson....
Phone phone the red receiver at the end of the bed it keeps getting clearer
Rings run running around me
Untying the ribbons for the good of the family
And your dear friends gathered together
You were looking for trouble now your losing your temper
Cold feet in London
Useless confetti
No groom
No first kiss

No diamonds for the girl
Don't look in the side of the wardrobe
The white dress hangs tall as a tightrope
Clothes piled high in a suitcase
Better get moving fast for it's too late
And you dear friends gathered in darkness
Formed a search and followed their partners
So phone phone the red receiver at the end of the bed but no one will be here

    General CommentLove this song so much, one of my favourites by Sons and Daughters. I figure it's about a girl who runs out on her wedding, but I'm not sure why.

    General CommentIt's easy to love, because it's actually a re-write of bridge section of Violent Femmes "Kiss Off", from their first album. The keys and melodies are all there. But it's great; the entire albums sounds like it was recorded circa 1982-1984 in the same studios the Femmes were recording in, just with the Scottish slant. Talented song crafters.
