Track Name: Short Haired Boy
I was born a short haired boy
My mother’s pride and joy
And everywhere that mummy went
She’d take me and all

‘My boy is
Such a perfect specimen
With mummy’s eyes and chins
And bless his little cottons
With daddy’s short haired pins’

They took me up the high street
All the grannies billed and cooed
They hobbled all together
To stroke my scratchy follicles

‘Oh couldn’t you just eat him up,’
they said and licked their lips
I gurgled out in terror
But they did not take the hint

Mother was in tears
When my cowlick first appeared
The bristles became bushels
‘til they brushed down past me ears

‘My little boy’s a monster,’
She shivered in dad’s arms
He dragged me by the ankles….

To the barbers

Now I look so neat and smart
A little short haired work of art
Now I look so smart and neat
From my short haired head to my shoe shod feet

We’ll eat our crusts and leave the rest
We’ll sup our milk from short haired breasts
To grow the short hairs on our chest

Ho ho.
Track Name: The Servant
Paint peels
From walls
I’m bored
Do nothing at all today

Tap drips
I’ll drink
Lonely
I think…

Lights out
Goodnight
I’m tired
Sleep tight and dream
About the servant

No family I know of
But I just like having him round

About the servant
About the servant
About the servant
About the servant

And if he doesn’t lift a finger – that’s ok
I’ll do anything just to make sure he stays
But did I mention lately that I’ve not been quite myself?
It’s strange
Track Name: A Thoughtful Boy
My brother Matthew
Is not like his brothers
No, none of his brothers
Are like him at all

He’s clever
And he’s always been thoughtful
He sits in his bedroom
And stares at the wall

Oh but he’s such a thoughtful boy
Such a thoughtful boy

My brother Matthew
Had so much potential
But all that potential
Just amounted to naught

He could’ve been a someone
Think he needs to see someone
He just sits in his bedroom
Does nothing at all.

Oh but he’s such a thoughtful boy
Such a thoughtful boy
Such a thoughtful boy
Such a thoughtful boy
