Shoot a cow

Bash a lamb

What shall you have on your ham?





This one’s going nowhere

Cos somewhere’s somewhere I won’t like

This one’s going nowhere

Cos somewhere’s somewhere, somewhere’s somewhere


I can’t stand that

Not what it’s for

Not something I will hear before


Tell me that it’s not my liking

Danish bacon Viking, Viking

Not something I will hear before


Repeat Chorus




Repeat Chorus x 2


Somewhere I won't like

Somewhere I won't like

Somewhere I won't like

The Story of 'Intracity'

Vacant Lot-Egoes

My bud Hynesie (on the right above) wrote the lyrics to this one (at work apparently - think I still have the scrap of paper somewhere, somewhere...) in response to me playing him a tune I had

The tune in question was Has It Really Been A Year which I hadn't done anything with at the time, but which I've since done a rough demo of

Although I already had some lyrics I'm not sure I told him at the time to be honest as I wasn't using them for personal reasons, and it seemed a shame not to use a good tune.

Anyway, suitably inspired off he went and came up with a cool commentary on some people's attitudes towards things a bit 'out of the ordinary' like vegetarianism. I was veggie at the time. Hynesie has long since become a passionate Vegan!

This one certainly was 'going somewhere' as it later got added to the Tuscan Raiders repertoire and got played on the BBC :)
