"City Hobgoblins" as written by Mark Smith, Stephen Hanley, Marc Riley and Craig Scanlan....
Spiders know these things
Gremlins know these things
Tap, tap, tap, tap
You think it's the pipes
But who turns on the lights?
Our city hobgoblins
Ubu le Roi is a home hobgoblin
And at nights all ready
Our city hobgoblins
Infest my home at night
They are not alright
Ten times my age
One-tenth my height
Our city hobgoblins
Buzz of the all-night mill
Ah but evil
Emigres from old green glades
Pretentious eh?
Our city hobgoblins
They'll get yer
So Queen Victoria
Is a large black slug in Piccadilly, Manchester
Our city hobgoblins
And they say
We cannot walk the floor at night in peace
At night in peace

    General Commentby the way:

    At night in peace!

    at night in peace!


    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
    at night in peace!
