"Making Plans for Nigel (XTC cover)" as written by and Colin Moulding....
We're only making plans for Nigel
We only want what's best for him
We're only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs this helping hand

And if young Nigel says he's happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work

We're only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a British steel
We're only making plans for Nigel
Nigel's whole future is as good as sealed

And if young Nigel says he's happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work

Nigel is not outspoken
But he likes to speak
And loves to be spoken to

Nigel is happy in his work
We're only making plans for Nigel

    General CommentThis song has also been covered by British Industrial/Techno Metallers Pitchshifter, if you can listen to this as well as the other you see how great this song is and how it works for all music styles
