The Next Idiot Who Mentions ‘The Isle Of Lindisfarne’ In A Folksong Is A Right Cunt, And Besides A Good Battering, Deserves To Be Locked In The Fucking Stocks On Giro Day… There, I’ve Said It, Don’t Thank Me, Someone Had To! by Paul Tristram

You’re from a council estate back in Manchester, mate.
The only thing ‘Green & Pleasant’ ‘round your way
is the stuff they smoke out of two thirds of the food money.
Growing a beard doesn’t mean you are spiritual…
it just makes you look like a fucking tramp about the place.
And that ‘Love Who Disappeared Down That Long,
Winding Country Road, Off Into The Summer Solstice Horizon.
Breaking Your Heart In The Process, But, You’ll Never Forget Her,
Coz She Was And Probably Still Is A Child O’ Nature
And As Free As A Bird With Her Carefree, Loving Ways’
Fuck Right Off! No one’s buying it… you got dumped, mate!
Truth hurts, innit! Bang a prostitute or three and stop whinging,
get drunk permanently like every other poor cunt has to.
I’m sick of getting thrown out of boozers in the city centre
for throwing empty pint glasses and slop-trays at you,
as you sit up there on that stool on ‘Talent-less Night’
taking the fucking piss with your Cash Converters acoustic guitar.
Singing about ‘San Francisco’, ‘Flowers In Hair’
and ‘The Sad Lament Of The Wandering Minstrel’s Haemorrhoids’
I wanna listen to some Motorhead on the jukebox, you waste of space!
