"Accident & Emergency" as written by and Patrick Wolf....
(Emergency!)

So come on
Give me the worst and then again
I'm feeling braver than I've ever been
From the skull down to the feet
All out for blood and sweat and meat
And for

Accident! Emergency!
To terrorists, catastrophe
Drop this agony, and misery
Give me accident and emergency

So what happens when you lose everything?
You just carry on and with a grin
(Sing!)
For all that your life has to bring,
And just get yourself back into the ring
(Knock it out!)

For accident and emergency
To terrorists, catastrophe
Drop this agony, and misery
Hold on for accident and emergency

If you never lose
How you gonna know when you won?
If it's never dark
How you gonna know the sun?
When it shines
You've got to let it shine

Accident. Emergency.
Accident. Emergency.
C'mon!
Accident. Emergency.
Accident. Emergency.
C'mon!

Accident and emergency
Bringing out the best in me

    General Comment"The song is, first of all, based around two chords", says Wolf. "It was originally called A and E. And the two chords it's based on are A and E," But he was saved from having to call the song Apples and Edelweiss by a well-timed tour of Belgium. "It reminded me of a time when I was 11", he says. "I was a choir boy and we were on tour. We were on the motorway in a double decker coach and I was on the bottom deck - it went over a bump and I fell out of the emergency exit. I was in a coma for a week."

    Wolf soon become known at school as "the boy who survived falling out of a coach", not that this gained him any respect. "I actually became the freak of the school you know. So I started making lots more music."
