"Gran’s For Tea" as written by Kyle Falconer and Kieren Webster....
There's a mile long queue at the chippy
I wish I was at my Gran's for tea
These people call me their friend, but they don't think the same as me
Are you fed up chasing your tail round this housing scheme
Drinkin' your drink now
And staying up too early in the morning
I wander through the streets of Dundee
Mum said you shouldn't walk them alone
A fight's a fight, 'n' that's quite alright
But please leave the tools at home
You lower standards and expectations of love
You never aim for people that you think are levels above
You're always chasing the same skirts round
Round the local pub
Where were you when I needed you?
Up the posh end of town
You're supposed to protect and serve
You're out for a perve just driving around

    General CommentI love both their voices..
    Does anyone else think the whole 'Wish I was at my Gran's for tea' thing is kinda cute?
    I think it's basically about life in Dryburgh
    There might be some deeper meaning, but if there is then I've missed it..

    My InterpretationI think it's about a fight they gotten into when they were waiting in the line at the chippy and wished they were at Gran's for tea.

    And the last stanza is about a police who should of been there to stop the fight but was too busy at the posh end of town looking at lasses? "You're out for a perve just driving around"
