lyrics

The Cumbrian Spaceman’s a hell of a guy but he’s shy; he’s so shy. Keeps busy and keeps to himself as he keeps up the lie. Don’t you dare take his photograph don’t you dare call his name out loud in a crowd don’t you dare tease and point and laugh don’t you dare. Calamity Jane is a hell of a gal but she’s trouble; real trouble. Keeps yapping and yakking about some guy John Henry but she’s not blowing smoke no she’s not yanking anyone’s chain no she’s not taking the mick telling no tall tales anymore no she’s not. “A halter pardon him (and) hell gnaw his bones!” Her hollow form filled up with rage. And there’s an old dead factory by the side of the road and the gulls live there on the roof in the cold cold air and when they speak they speak in pidgin and they say: “There’s not a molecule in the atmosphere as wild as you or this party we’re going to. There’s not a particle in the Universe that’s hotter than you or this party we’re going to.”
