"The Deverell Twins" as written by Jonathan Edward Hoadley Foster-moore and Luke Michael Haines....
I'm swimming with the Deverell Twins
I haven't got a care in a world, not a care
They are looking after me

This is the age of chivalry
This is the age of alchemy

I'm invited by the Deverell Twins
I'm delighted to accept
Their hospitality

This is the life of luxury
It's the beginning of the end

They show me their charts
Away to the stars
Say I'm as pretty as a picture

I'm admired by the Deverell Twins
They're very fond of me
They tell me their secret

This is the age of chivalry
It's the beginning of the end

They started the fire
Stifled their grins
No-one suspected the Deverell Twins

I'm enchanted by the Deverell Twins
I'm as pretty as a picture

    General CommentI think the Deverell twins were a pair of kids murdered in Victorian London, found floating in the river... Sarah Nixey's voice with this is absolutely bloody terrifying.

    General CommentIn St Bartholomew's Churchyard at Lower Basildon, there is a joint tomb for two sons of Edward and Priscilla Deverell. Both boys drowned together bathing in Thames. The tombstone reads "They were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided."

    Probably where the names come from in this song.
