"Heart Failed (In The Back Of A Taxi)" as written by and Bob/wiggs Stanley....
Took a trip down Anita Way
Had to go on the 1st of May
Didn't have much to celebrate
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Doot do do, doot do do

Get yer kicks all around the world
Give a tip to a geisha girl
Fit your bit with a piece of pearl
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Doot do do, doot do do

Sold the ground to a PLC
Moved the club out to Newbury
Sod the fans and their families
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Heart failed in the back of a taxi

Picture-house built in '23
It's a place out of history
Pulled it down for your cash money
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Heart failed in the back of a taxi
Doot do do, doot do do

    General CommentI'm not sure about the first two verses, but the second two sound like the writer's dismay at the sacreligious redevelopment taking place in her home town. Her favourite soccer club has been moved away from their spiritual home, the grounds being sold to a PLC (publically limited company - a term we use here in the UK). Meanwhile, historic buildings are being torn down to make way for new flats/shopping centres.

    General CommentYes -- Like in "I was born on Christmas day" -- "Did you know they pulled the townhall down? I don't think you'll recognize this town." There's a lot of nostalgia in Saint Etienne songs. It's a little like that old Kinks song, "Come Dancing."
