lyrics

On a Friday morning Mr. Grant-Davis went to the police
He said: "Yesterday somebody stole two hub caps!" (From his Rolls Royce)
He said, the thief must have stolen them at Bush Road Garage before
He returned from making a call in a telephone booth
And the policeman said: "Well, how about that? Isn't that sad?"

It's been quite a few years since anyone had the chance
To see the one and only Danni A. dance (On her web cam)
And those who have were the members of an exclusive club
Well, let me tell you, now the rules have changed
And the members said: "Well, how about that? Isn't that sad?"

A maid-servant living on her own in a house nearby
Had gone upstairs to prepare for bed at eleven o'clock (Good night, sleep well)
As she sight and looked out of the window from her window sill
The young girl fell into some sort of dreamy state
And she softly said: "Well, how about that? Isn't that so sad?"

Isn't it all along
Stuff for a Northern Song
Isn't it all along
Stuff for another Northern Song

“Piano, bass and drums – I don’t think I really need any other instruments!” said Erk when he started back in 2003. Since then he has evolved his sound and music, but still keeps it simple!
