"George Lassoes The Moon" as written by Guy Edward John Garvey, Mark Potter, Craig Lee Potter, Richard Barry Jupp and Peter James Turner....
What's to do?
Didn't they want to play?
Not to fret
Wait a while
Do it again
Glory be!
I died and went to France
Now I'm climbing carpet walls,
For just another chance

Not today,
Just suck on your plastic spoon
Chase the thought that
George lassoes the moon
It's gonna come round soon
And when it does,
I'll be falling round the room

It's not funny anymore
Had enough
I'm not laughing anymore
Had enough

More than this,
I'm more than this
The more I try,
The less it works
Enough is enough

What's to do?
Didn't they want to play?
Not to fret, do it again
It's gonna come round soon
I'll be falling round the room

    General CommentThe title "George Lassoes The Moon" is a reference to It's a Wonderful Life.

    George always dreamed of leaving his hometown and seeing the wonders of the world. But his niceness led to compromises, the chains that held him back. He wound up getting shat on again and again. The title references a part where he tells his fancied ladyfriend he'd lasso the moon for her.

    General Comment@Louisa, it's a very rare one, it only appears on the legendary Noisebox-EP and the Any Day Now-EP with the brown sleeve...
    I'd really like to know the deeper meaning of that song, it sounds very sad...the person in that song must be really depressed...
