Lyrics

Comin' through
Oh I wish I was comin' through
Into you
'Cause you taught me and you learned me everything that I think that I knew
Comin' through
With Alexis Korner, Brian Jones, Acker Bilk and everyone else ending up on E

We were born into a gap
We grew up between the wars
We could squeeze onto the map
Then you get down on all fours
Take a closer look and see
That the past is very small

Comin' through
Donovan and everybody standing up like the people that I knew
And it's true -
He's moved to Ireland like Roy Harper and the rest of that crew

And as for Stew,
Well I've never in my life met anybody called Stew, so let's go up there

In the pantomime of God, I pretend that I'm a slave
And I'm reaching for the pod, as I'm standing by the grave
Of Spike Milligan who said
"Well, I told you I was ill"

Comin' through
If power's the answer then what was the question?
I wish that I knew
Hello, Blue - you listen to progressive rock although you're only 30 and I love you
And I knew
That when you met with Mandy the whole thing would be perfect so let's go

In the darkness of the soul
Moral fibre is the key
To events that you control
And the people you can see
All the decent people who
Should be dying in their beds

Comin' through
Comin', comin' through

Anita Crashpad!
