Track Name: Kenneth
Kenneth bought a ukulele.
Kenneth liked to play it daily.
Kenneth liked to play it nightly.
Ken's wife smashed it
(And quite rightly).

Well that's just the way it goes.
Should've seen it coming, I suppose.

Kenneth bought himself a kazoo.
Quite a foolish thing to do.
His wife reacted like you'd think she would do.
Now Kenneth's got a smashed kazoo, too.

Well that's just the way it goes.
Should've seen it coming, I suppose.

"My one regret"
The hedgehog said,
"Is purchasing
This waterbed."

Kenneth thought he'd learn recorder.
He borrowed one off of his daughter.
His wife found out, which terrified him.
Now that recorder's stuck inside him.


Well that's just the way it goes.
Should've seen it coming, I suppose...
Track Name: Man In A Dog Costume
I know that you love him
And I know you've lost your sight.
Everybody's noticed
But we're all too polite
To tell you...

Charlie's not the pet you think he is.
And it's not as you presume...
Charlie's just a man in a dog costume.

Your canine companion
Is a geezer on all fours.
Didn't you ever wonder
Why he's got hands instead of paws?
(And fingers)

Charlie's not the pet you think he is.
And it's not as you presume...
Charlie's just a man in a dog costume.

Well I guess you won't remember that fateful day
When Charlie thought he'd go outside and play.
He ran out into the garden and he jumped the gate.
By the time the driver saw him it was too late.
He came up to your door to tell you, but he saw you were blind
And a curious kinda concept formed in his mind.
He got an old fur coat, some scissors and a tube of glue
And within about an hour he was Charlie mark two.

Charlie's not the pet you think he is.
And it's not as you presume...
Charlie's just a man in a dog costume.

Charlie's not the pet you think he is.
And it's not as you presume...
Charlie's just a man in a dog costume.
Track Name: My Road
Arguments and fights
Are the soundtrack to my nights
Down my road.
The sound of a siren's scream
Wakes me up from perfect dreams
Down my road.

You should try living down my road.
You should try living down my road.

Arguments and fights
Are the soundtrack to my nights
Down my road.
The sound of a siren's scream
Wakes me up from perfect dreams
Down my road.

You should try living down my road.
You should try living down my road.

Litter blows like leaves
Decorates the crumbling streets
Down my road.
Slogans on the walls
Drawn by kids thrown out of schools
Down my road.

You should try living down my road.
You should try living down my road.

If you're gonna have an argument or fight
Come and stand outside my window tonight.
You can yell abuse and beat your lover
You can tell her all about the other woman in your life - someone else's wife.

Children laugh and cry
Shout abuse at passers-by
Down my road.
It's the same old situation
Round the corner from the station
Down my road.

You should try living down my road.
You should try living down my road.
You should try living down my road.
You should try living down my road.
Track Name: Mantrap!
The rest of the house was sleeping when I heard a peculiar noise.
Sounded like someone speaking in a high-pitched voice.
So I put on my dressing gown and headed to the stairs
And as I quietly tip-toed down I realised I was scared.

Ba-da-ba, etc.

"What's that? Who's there? Come out!" I cried
And prayed that they had gone.
Then right about that time I spied the kitchen light was on.
I pushed the door and was relieved to find nobody there,
Then just as I had turned to leave, saw something on a chair.

A giant piece of cheese, wrapped up in a red bow,
With a note addressed to me, then...the next thing I know...

I woke inside a cage of sorts,
Three mice sat by my head.
My head was spinning, full of thoughts,
Then the largest rodent said:
"We've got our retribution! Oh yes, we've got our revenge!
The years of persecution have finally reached an end!
You've hunted us for far too long
Now it's time to turn the page!"
And then the mice broke into song
And danced around my cage, singing:

"We caught a man in a mantrap!
All mice should have one of these!
All that you need is a man that
Just can't resist some cheese!"
(like me)
