"Little Bag Of Hair" as written by and Steven Blaine Harrison....
Nintendo machines in hospitals are always broken
Chewing jay cloths relieves the pain from mouth ulcers
I've got a crush on a girl
But I'm gonna have to work on that
They say that being in the army makes you hard
But I don't know about that

[Chorus:]
Ice cream blender, pocket money spender
Off-chart behavior, granulated banana flavor
Let's play nurses and doctors
Until the real nurses and doctors catch us shouting curses
Hiding in boxes until the real nurses and doctors come

I used to have a little bag of hair
And wish it was my hair
My Dad would bring me Air fix fighters
The glue would get all over the bed
At my fingertips enough morphine to put me in that jet
A 4am that little red button was all I had left

[Chorus]
Ice cream blender, pocket money spender
Off-chart behavior, granulated banana flavour
Let's play nurses and doctors
Until the real nurses and doctors catch us shouting curses
Hiding in boxes until the real nurses and doctors come

    General CommentTheir singer Blaine has spina bifida, and this is a song about how he spent most of his early childhood in hospital. Sad.

    but yeah, it is a sad song...

    General Commentnope sorry, it is 'in a jet'. it's what's written in the inlay of the album and.. yeah, it's just what is said. besides, 'in a death' doesn't make any sense.

    General CommentThis is one of those songs which makes your heart sink.
    It's beautiful, but you can feel the pain he must have gone through as a child.
    It's so blunt and truthful, nothing is hidden.
    I met the band after their gig in Glasgow a year ago and they are all really great guys with a lot of talent.

    General CommentI agree with stinaribena - this is a really moving song. Mystery Jets are good at making songs that mean an awful lot.

    General CommentI just love the sense of 90's childhood- bananna pain killers, ice cream, planes, 'crushes', nintendos...
