LYRICS

I never got the elbow
Just telling you
Before you go
Only telling you
Just so you know

I never got the elbow
I slung it in
Had it up to here
I just pulled the pin
Went and had a beer

I used to love a bit of folding
Just for getting by
A wad of cash
Now that’s out of date
And so am I
As pie and mash

S’cuse me, s’cuse me
Have you got my roll?
My roll? My bacon roll?

The time they took us bowling
What was that about?
I thought what a joke
I just went out
And had a smoke

Then the white water rafting
Just some know-it-all
With the new regime
There to show us all
How to build a team

He says what do you think we’re doing?
I said don’t ask me
I’ve no idea
They all laughed at that
That was pretty funny actually

S’cuse me, s’cuse me
Have you got my roll?
My roll? My bacon roll?
Have you got my roll?
My roll? My bacon roll?

I could order you a toastie
Just like that one there
Or the same in plain white bread
When you’re dealing with a toastie
What do you prefer
Brown or red?

I never got the elbow
Just telling you
Before you go
Only telling you
Just so you know

Delicious!  :P

Love the part "S’cuse me, s’cuse me" and there's a very tasty solo too. ;)  Which guitar is it, the Strat?  Sounds a bit different but it's not the LP or Pensa (I think anyway).

The more I'm listening to this the more I like it and I don't really know why!  Perhaps just the overall tone of it and feelings it gives me.  I have images of greasy spoon cafés and Rita Tushingham kitchen sink 60s films (The Leather Boys perhaps)!  Really love this one.

Sounds Strat like... Good little track that is growing on me the more I hear it...

Outro is good but way too short  and cannot save me the song because of this totally ridiculous lyrics. Sorry.

Could be a grower, but the lyrics are a bit off the wall.   Nice guitar solo.   :)
