Summertown Autumn (I Roure) Summertown Autumn: motorised mowers every day Summertown Autumn: keeping the growing grass at bay No hedge untrimmed, no stone misplaced, no leaf remains un-raked Summertown Autumn: such a joy to contemplate... It's another grey and rainy English Saturday All the kids are hanging out at Starbucks - or so they say... Caroline and Anne are testing out new and exciting ways Upgrading social status while they play A five-fingered discount but it won't pay Summertown Autumn: Security's calling off the fun Summertown Autumn: young ladies think about but you have done Your mothers understand it was the same when they were young Summertown Autumn: back to boredom you must come... Oh-oh-oh-oh back to boredom you must come... Caught a little fall in Summertown today Caught a little fall in Summertown today Caught a little fall in Summertown today Caught a little fall in Summertown today Summertown Autumn
On Deep England (Ian Roure) Somewhere... A golden afternoon, pint of mild, Creased cricket whites Somewhere... A different history Made a different present you'd like Empire declined, industrial rewind, Reality refined... (chorus) Your Deepest dreams have new life Now you gave up the mental fight You can almost feel from clouded hills Your feet alight... On Deep England Somehow... Your fainted form was found And a tonic was prescribed Somehow... Then you saw the vision And your fainted form revived Escher-like design, your saviour ever kind Has graciously resigned... When you close you eyes You can see quite clearly The future comes alive Like a cartoon on TV...Oh, oh... When you close your eyes They've got you easy Selling to the blind The world you'd like to see If you just believe...


A rollicking number about suburban shoplifters coupled with a musical saunter through sunlit uphills and meadows of unicorns...
