"This Year's Thing" as written by and Nigel/dunstan Hunter....
Roll up, roll up
The greatest show on earth
Animals, clowns, freaks, misfits, contortionists
Fun for all the family

Currently residing in the 'where are they now' file
All tied up in elastic
Stubborn like weeds they've been here all the while
I saw the egos grow
In good working order adjustable spanner
Industry junkies
Regurgitated cabaret under the hammer
They were running the show

Let's hear it for this year's thing
Come on
Last year's thing
Come on
Next year's thing
Come on

Step right this way
Thrills chills and spills
Marvel at the daring feats
Pure entertainment

Karaoke sex we can spend the night together
I made a date with Elvis
While someone does a runner with the group's bread and butter
I heard the colonel sing
From a packet of twenty when will they learn?
That for one good smoke there's nineteen that burn
I never saw the strings attached to


Jump a little higher
Live by fire die by fire
I am the dog in the manger
Or a dodgy brown packet with suspicious-looking wires
Here's my starter for ten
Behind that pane of glass your special backstage pass
Hear the never-has-beens
Meet the manager with his kecks down and kiss his arse
And watch it happen again
This time it's


One, two, three, four
This year's thing, this year's thing, this year's thing
Politics is this year's thing
