"Misadventure" as written by Glenn Martin Tilbrook and Christopher Henry Difford....
Hitched a hiker
Up above the border
She'd spent some time
In Morocco and Gibraltar
And stole my wallet
With a picture of my misses
With fond remembrance
Of everything with kisses
From the Isle of Dogs
To the Egyptian sands
Where the Arabs chew on dates
And I haven't forgot what it's like to be
With misadventure and her mates
I miss the East End
High up on the Khyber
And I'm the target
For a dozen rebel snipers
It's not so bad though
With some beers in the freezer
And something fancy
In the air conditioned sleeper
In moving carpets
Through the customs at Dover
Thinking my journey
Was going to be over
Then they discovered
A shipment of Moroccan
And said excuse me sir
There's something you've forgotten

    Song MeaningOne of several songs from Argybargy with a catchy, happy tune and a dark subject, in this case apparently drug smuggling. "[H]igh up on the Khyber" almost certainly refers to the Khyber Pass in Afghanistan / Pakistan, through which passes or at least historically passed a large percent of the world's supply of opium / opiates. Again, "discovered the shipment of Moroccan" presumably refers to hidden drugs, for which he is now "[b]ehind prison walls and gates".
