  3. Billy, Kirsty's chippy song is not a song about Elvis.
    Its a song about mistrust where she uses the delusions of someone
    she knows to illustrate why she might not believe everything her
    boyfriend says.
    So maybe you can let your new pal on the other side have his shout and
    get it over with tonight.

    1. It's got Elvis in the title so is a shoo in for tomorrow. It could be played two nights in a row you never know.

  4. There is chap who shoves a barrow of pineapples up our street most mornings. Nice guy, he sells them whole or by the slice. In the afternoons he helps his brother harvest coconuts by shaking palm trees on a farm just out of town.
    Now if only there was a song that illustrated his daily grind......

    3. Pineapples in the morning
      Coconuts in the afternoon
      Mangos at twilight
      Kumquats under the moon

      Lychees in the early hours
      Chinese gooseberries at dawn
      The Man from Del Monte's never off my back
      For fruit is his sine qua non

      All together now....
