This is the hardest song in the world to find
This is the hardest song in the world to find

It first saw the light of day as a fan-club only flexidisc
Although nowadays you won't find even one,
Because the plastic they were made of was extremely volatile
It used to self-combust if let out in the sun.

It turned up on a compilation that was banned before release
The manufacturers were forced to pulp them all.
Then it came out on the b-side of a top-ten selling hit
But only on the version issued in Nepal.

This is the hardest song in the world to find
This is the hardest song in the world to find

Then a few years later on a bootleg copy did the rounds
Though a rumour quickly spread that it was cursed,
Because anyone who heard it would drop dead in seven days
Unless they made another copy of it first.

Then just last year an mp3 attachment started to appear
In people's e-mail inboxes but I'm afraid
It came infected with a virus that erased your whole hard drive
Thirty seconds after the first time it was played.

This is the hardest song in the world to find
This is the hardest song in the world to find

Everybody thinks this song is lost forever, but not so
There's one mint vinyl copy left and I believe
That it's in a shop that sells old tapes and second hand LPs
On Camden High Street, stuffed in the wrong sleeve.
And the owner and proprietor's the only one who knows
Which sleeve it's in, but he won't give the game away,
Because he had a stroke this morning, he's in intensive care right now,
I don't think he's feeling well enough to say.

This is the hardest song in the world to find
This is the hardest song in the world to find
This is the hardest song in the world to find
This is the hardest song in the world to find
