Haunted

A song set in the moment of realisation, that everything must change, because sentimentality is no reason to ask your partner stay in an unhappy place,“

…it’s suddenly cold when you wake in the bath.”

Shanty

Playing at a punch up in Lochaber, the bar staff said “that was a great night” we said but they were fighting each other” and they said “aye but they didn’t punch you”

“The Lochaber boys and Buckie loons

Parked their fleets and stowed harpoons”

SORRY IS A USELESS WORD

An old style Humpff Family rant, saying that some times, you can’t fix what’s broken. “…like we sit at the top of the food chain out competing until they’re extinct…”

A Spanish friend (Paloma) told John years ago “in south America we have parties (festivals) they last two weeks and easily two hundred people die”. George was the first Bass player in the Humpff Family,a beautiful character who died of mischief in 2004 :“While George used up his next last chance, Chasing cheeses down a hill”

After seeing Toni Basil (Micky) Dance in her 70s with such beauty we had to pay tribute.

The Putty Pickers

Putty Pickers, native to Scotland, are on the decline with the introduction of UPVC windows, but they are still keeping children under their covers, where they should be.

 “They sniff around for children’s feet, or hands or knees or bums

 ‘Cause children are so much tastier, than sour Dads or Mums”
