Is This New

Lyrics

It was something like
Judge and jury
Or Jeremy Kyle (1)
Nobody knew
But still it was elusive
And though they pursued
Mr J. Archer as he separated everywhere (2)
They knew Dot was his mum (3)
But still they went on searching and searching

I was provoked
It was not in accord with any known law
Laughing in the middle
Time blenders all of them

The last statement with the department of no name (4)
Proved diversible to the authorities
They knew Judy was his friend  (5)
Dot was his mum
But they still went on searching and searching
With no result

I was provoked
It was not in accord with any known law
Laughing in the middle
Time blenders all of them

At the end they tracked them down to a dancing high school
And his god damn rock school, featuring an Egyptian
At least one
And a Trombone musician
Then they disappeared
But they went off for ever


Notes

1. Jeremy Kyle is a controversial British radio and television personality, known for The Jeremy Kyle Show, a tabloid program more or less in the style of Jerry Springer.

^

2. Perhaps Jeffrey Archer, a British novelist and politician whose conviction for perjury ended his political career in 2001.

^

3. Jeffrey Archer's mother is named Lola; I couldn't connect the dots here, as it were.

^

4. "Alton Towers" on the same album mentions a "dept. with no name."

^

5. Archer was a guest on British talk show Richard and Judy in 2006, and this may possibly be a reference to co-host Judy Finnegan.

"elusive" rather than "illusive"?

Hmm, yeah...this must hail from a time when I was much more credulous about the Lyrics Parade.

This reads either like a soap opera plot, or something MES read in a newspaper or heard in the pub.
