"Divan" as written by and Tom Morgan....
Well it's not much like a lounge
You know it's more like a sofa bed
And if you get the feeling you'll be hanging around

Well you can crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

Well the TV set is where it is
You can watch it for as long as you like
But the minute you get tired of it

Well you can crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan
Crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

Well in the morning I got things to do
I've gotta be up and out by 10
But if you're still asleep, I won't wake you
And you can

Crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan
Crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

    General CommentOne of the band’s sweetest songs, basically an invitation to a friend to stay over for the night whenever so inclined (“crash out on my divan”). Obviously struck a chord with a lot of musos, because as well as being covered by The Lemonheads (as b-side from 1992 single of Simon & Garfunkel cover Mrs Robinson) it’s also been attempted by countless others.

    Tom Morgan: “Yeah, a lot of people recorded that. Once again I don’t remember why we recorded it again for Manilow – I feel like the EP version might be better, the one before it. That was written without a guitar – just one night on the street. I think we were going to the Cross, and we were in the back of a cab and passed this restaurant called Divan, like a Turkish pizza restaurant, and then I wrote the first verse and by the end of the night I had the whole song.”
