Songfacts®:

  • Running to around three and a half minutes, this song has the same credits and the same format as "London Road In Bloom" and all the other numbers from the musical London Road. Accused Suffolk Strangler Steve Wright appears in court for the third time, and pleads not guilty to all five counts of murder. This discordant cacophony of male and female voices ends with this plea. >>
