"Too Many Sandwiches" as written by Kelly Jones, Stuart Cable and Richard Mark Jones....
Shopping spree for the family tree
Haven't seen your family tree in quite a while
Too many sandwiches and wine sherry stains
Down your best mans tie, what a speech
The band arrives, the granny's cry
Singer's tongue's in the barmaid's mouth, what a voice
Grandpa drunk a drop or two
His head's still sunk in the portaloo, what a man
You bought a sequin dress for your chicken breast
The disco's late and he's overpaid tonight
You got a diamond ring
And the man who sings
The man who sings made love to the barmaid twice
And that's just tonight
The blue rinsed hairs lift up the chairs
The band's too loud, they're off
Down stairs what a noise
The bride and groom dance their dance
The singer mimes
There's still a chance
The bar maid smiles

    General CommentIt's about a wedding. A really crap one, and all these bad things happen.

    General Commentthis is a song about how no matter how well planned something is, life will always find a way to mess things up. This is a terrible wedding, but it shows how human all the characters are, as opposed to everybody's 'PERFECT' ideal of a flawless wedding.

    The small statements at the end of every verse (eg: "What a voice") are for humour: he sings with an optimistic and tongue-in-cheek view of this wedding. Even though it's all going wrong, he sees the experience as fun and rich in humanity as the chaos continues through the night. Where's the fun in everything being perfectly in order, no errors or anything?

    To me, that's what the song's about: because "Life's a box of chocolates..."
