"Arthur" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
Arthur played the bass.
He had an angel's face.
Jiving with the Hoodoos, man,
No-one could take his place

No, No, No!
He needed extra cash
So he drove his brother's cab.
The day we heard the news, you know

It really hit us bad.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!
That was the day that Arthur died.

A black gelato van
Finished for the day,
Met with Arthur's taxi head-on
Down St.Kilda way

(By the Prince Of Wales).
That was the way that Arthur died
Upon the day that Arthur died.

    General CommentAccording to what I read online (so take this with a grain of salt,) Arthur was in the Hoodoo Gurus when it first formed. At the time, he was the bass player. He also had a job as a taxi driver in Sydney. One evening just as he finished his shift, a drunk driver in a van ran into his taxi, killing both Arthur and the driver of the van. This supposedly occurred on St. Kilda way in Sydney.
