"Skipping" as written by Billy Mackenzie, Michael Stephen Dempsey and Alan Peter Rankine....
Doors lead to other doors
Roads lead to other roads
They are simple they just happen
They're simple they take care of themselves
They're simple they just happen to be there

Embarrassed try one too
Whatever times left of day
Marvelous lousy could this be your safest way
Ancestral in its own deficiency
A deficit of skipping

Skipping
Skipping I left you there skipping
Ripping ropes from the Belgian wharfs
Breathless Beauxillous griffin once removed seemed dwarfed
They're simple in that they happen to be there

Embarrassed try one too
Whatever times left of day
Marvelous lousy could this be your safest way
Ancestral in its own deficiency
A deficit of skipping

Skip-skip, skip, skipping
Skip-skip, skip, skipping, skipping
Skip-skip, skip, skipping
Skip-skip, skip, skip-skipping
Skip-skip, skip, skipping
Skipping I left you there, I left you there
Skip-skip skip-skipping, skipping, skipping

Skipping I left you there
Skipping skipping
Skipping I left you there

    General CommentThe LP Sulk was a student favourite of mine and this track had one of the most bizarre lyrics I've ever come across, so I had to comment on it. I can only imagine it was about a dream or he was on something, a hallucinogen like LSD maybe (try one too might be a clue here, and that once you've tried one you feel like skipping but might feel both marvellous and lousy). Whatever strange mental state he was in, Belgian waterways seems to feature prominently in it, as we have Belgian wharves and a Griffon Bruxellois (not a Beauxillois griffin, though that's the lyric) is a type of Belgian barge dog. I always liked the idea of roads that just happened to be there - a wonderfully surreal concept.
