"The Ballad Of Me And My Friends" as written by and Francis Edward Turner....
Everybody's got themselves a plan
Everybody thinks they'll be
The man including the girls
The musicians who lack the friends to start a band,
The singer song writers
The rest of us are DJ's or official club photographers

And tonight I'm playing another Nambooka show
So I'm going through my phone book texting everyone I know
And quite a few I don't whose numbers found their way onto my phone
But I might come along anyway, you never really know

Because none of this is going anywhere
And pretty soon we'll all be old
And no one left alive will really care
About our glory days when we sold our souls
But if your all about the destination.

Then take a fucking flight
Where going nowhere slowly but seeing all the signs
And we're definitely going to hell

But we'll have all the best stories to tell.

    General CommentIt's kind of pointless looking at these songs too deeply sometimes cos he's so direct but it really makes it work cos you just get the picture straight away. This song's just a put up or shut up to everyone who's ever just sat around doing nothing to make the plans they've always said they'll achieve.

    General Comment I am going to go out on a limb and suggest that most of my friends will be joining me in Hell.

    Hopefully the few that do get to Heaven get passports to come visit us. Don't like that "eternal happiness" fool you, all the best parties are thrown in Hell. :-)
