Laburnum Walk

Were blues musicians of the Humber delta
If we play in tune its just by chance
Just by chance
Were sincere young men from the cities and the towns
The first chance we get to play could easily be the last
Could be the last
Sincere
Sincerely making a noise
We come not to make music but to laugh at it
If we do it right, I wont be very pleased
If we do it right, I wont be very pleased
Repetition, repetition, self-indulgence is the answer
If we dont do what we want, you know were selling out
If we dare to play in tune we must be selling out
If we use a chorus it means weve sold out
If we make a record it means we must be selling out
If we try and buy some food, we must have sold out
Free musicians do not need to eat
We walk from gig to gig and we live on fresh air
We never break strings and our gear never breaks down
Were blues musicians of the Humber delta,
And if we play a tune we must have sold out
If we play in tune, its just by chance
Its the first chance weve had to play for many years
Im sure it will be the last
