"The Fun Powder Plot" as written by and Jorge Abner Drexler....
When we turn up in our turn ups,
Our hearts are heavy,
Our heads are ready to levy.

For the yippee-less swing,
For the tot-less cot,
For the mock,
For the shock,
For the fun powder plot.

With courage and conviction,
In donkey-jaw diction,
We cry for the cause because the courts have left us lonely;
Disowned us daddies like the poopers of the party.

Gently, gently take them from me
Gently, gently take them from me
Gently, gently take them from me,
And I'll be left dumfound as a donkey.

This is a booty call; my boot up your arse hole.
This is a Freudian slip; my slipper in your bits.

    General CommentThis song is about Fathers 4 Justice, an organization of political activists focused on equal parenting and father's rights. The "Fun Powder Plot" was a nickname given to the House of Commons protest where two of its members threw condoms filled with purple flour at Tony Blair. The video of the incident is worth watching. It's pretty impressive that the guy nailed him from so far away.

    General CommentThe liner notes say all songs written by Wild Beasts - no reference to Jorge Abner Drexler. The lyrics are correct.

    General CommentSorry to rain on the comments of the first poster about ´Fathers 4 Justice´. Nice idea, but the song is actually about gay sex.

    This is a booty call; my boot up your arse hole.
    This is a Freudian slip; my slipper in your bits.

    Takes on a whole new meaning right?
