"Widders Dump" as written by and Steve Halliwell Dave Allen....
Sleeping in a hollow,
Beneath a bleeding moon,
Steel turns to rust ya know,
And it happens so soon,
All the saints and the sinners,
They're buried in the ground,
We're living like worms down here,
Move through the earth and we make no sound.

SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT,
TELL ME WHAT YOUR NAME IS,
WHEN THE RAIN AND THE GRAVITY FALL
IT WILL SURELY CRUSH US ALL
TONIGHT.

Thought I heard tomorrow
Calling through the broken door,
I can't come down right now,
I still feel too sore,
All the saints and the sinners,
They have gone to ground,
We're living like worms down here,
Move through the earth and we make no sound.

SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT,
TELL ME WHAT YOUR NAME IS,
WHEN THE RAIN AND THE GRAVITY FALL
IT WILL SURELY CRUSH US ALL
TONIGHT.

Thought I heard tomorrow
Crawling through the broken door,
oh no, I can't come down right now,
I still feel too sore,
All the things that we dig for,
They have lost their names,
But when they fall on Drop John's back
They're gonna crush him just the same.

SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT,
TELL ME WHAT YOUR NAME IS,
WHEN THE RAIN AND THE GRAVITY FALL
IT WILL SURELY CRUSH US ALL
TONIGHT.

Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey
See me walking down the railroad track,
Drop John riding on my back.

    General CommentThis song was apparently inspired by the novel "Riddley Walker" by Russell Hoban (according to the record's liner notes).
