Tralala, in your snatch fits pleasure, broom-shaped pleasure Deep greedy and Googling every corner Dead in the middle of the C-O-double M-O-N Little did I know then that the Mandela Boys soon become Mandela Men Tall woman, pull the pylons down
And wrap them around the necks of all the feckless men that queue to be the next Steepled fingers, ring leaders, queue jumpers, rock fist paper scissors, lingered fluffers In your hoof lies the heartland Where we tent for our treasure, pleasure, leisure, les yeux, it's all in your eyes In your snatch fits pleasure, broom-shaped pleasure Deep greedy and Googling every corner Blended by the lights

Ross from BristolThank you Luke, that adds a really interesting layer of meaning to the song
Luke from SouthamptonContrary to previous comments, this song does indeed reference other works of fiction, but also tells the tale of a local piece of news and history. In the not too distant past the gang known as the Mandella Boys (From Mandella way) attacked and as a group sexually assaulted a girl on The Common (C-O double M-O-N). This was viewed as a rite of passage for the Mandella Boys, hence them becoming Mandella Men.
They left her for dead, this is not reflected in any of the previous comments and I feel it important to mention this.
Also the track name is reflective of the area in which the attack took place around the Fitzhugh pub (Polygon).
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
