lyrics

On the coastline of Britain
Where history was written
We’re here in a hut by the sea
We’re all celebrating
The marriage of Jason
And the fact that we’re young and we’re free

With a drinking vocation
And a mindless elation
We’re whipping a storm from the sea
The floorboards are jumping
The Fondas are pumping
We’re as happy as ever we’ll be

And I know now that that party was
the greatest night of our lives
And I know now that it ruined us for some other parties that night

William went swimming
in a suit and a stetson
He’s drinking a gin in the waves
Jimmy played Stradlin
while the room was unravelling
The conga just spiralled away

So pass my white russian
For a straight shot of calcium
We’re not going to eat for a week (and a day)
We’re singing our hearts out
To a band who will no doubt
Sell many more records than me

And I know now that that party was the greatest night of our lives
And I know now that it ruined us for those other parties that might
Have wooed us and seduced us into washing those memories away
But I left well my heart there on that night in a hut by the bay

And after all when it’s said and it’s done
At the start of the day and the setting of the setting sun
Well we drank our share and we hugged and despaired
And we laughed and we laughed and we sucked in the air
And we were serious, ridiculous, outrageous and kind and squinting in the sunshine
we laughed and we laughed and we sucked in the air and we sucked in the air

And we’re drinking and we’re dancing and we’re having the time of our lives
And we’re rolling and we’re raging
On a night that could end all the nights
And we woke up on an old bench when you should have been home with your wife…
And we slept there, together, when you should have been home with your wife…

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
