The Jester

Album: Common Dreads (2009)
  • "Err Simmer down ladies and gentlemen, Simmer down, hey,
    you're acting rather irresponsibly right now, god damn you all"

    Hold your horses, steady now,
    'Cause we're floating precariously and therefore furthermore frivolously
    On tectonic plates
    Everything we stand on and everything we stand for
    Is rather unstable right now
    So I think I'll kill some time and have you done medium rare
    But I think I'll tease my pallet with some crudités, just to prepare
    Cos you see we've had a joker in the pack now for quite some time
    So I reckon it's just about time we roast this swine.

    Argh! This is a crock of shit I refuse to be fed!
    So knuckle down and use your head
    Can it sunshine, bottle it up you ponce
    Then knock me up a dish with some vol-au-vents

    Now i think we should take a leaf from the promised book (burn it up burn it up)
    Now i think we should take a leaf from the promised book (burn it up burn it up)
    Lets throw it up and start again
    Lets throw it up and start again
    Shoo!

    Nicely does it now
    Steady
    hold, hold, target locked
    Cop a load of this one
    Arr yeah!

    Ah That was great, my compliments to the chef, I'm very sat-is-fied
    I'll be sure to dine here again, fine cuisine.
    The stuffed cheeks were very agreeable,

    All in all a splendid spread. Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
