Track Name: Bumble Bee Song
Bumblebees, there's alot of you about
Bumblebees, you make me scared to go out

Bumblebees, Bumblebees

Bumblebees, the sun is shining now
But Bumblebees, I'm down when you're around
Bumblebees please keep away from me
Bumblebees, please stay among the leaves

Bumblebees, Bumblebees

Bumblebees don't make me feel your sting
I would not want to be your final fling
So stay away this lovely summer's day
And Bumblebees, friends we will remain
Track Name: Motorway Maintenance
You must have seen us we're Motorway Maintenance
We work on Motorways the whole day through
We've got problems not the least of them drivers
Try to knock us down, that's what they do

Wearing orange to enhance visibility
We drive a car with a flashing light
We're just trying to improve the facilities
Placing cones in the dead of night

Contraflow, contraflow, got to use the contraflow
Contraflow, contraflow, got to use the contraflow

Here we are we're Motorway Maintenance
It's our job to get the traffic through
Don't blame us we're Motorway Maintenance
We're just men with a job to do


You must have seen our digging machinery
We always lease from JCB
We really trust their reliability
They get us home in time for tea

We're taking care of our extremities
Sturdy gloves a necessity
Hefty hats we wear with alacrity
Heavy boots to protect our feet

Contraflow, contraflow, got to use the contraflow
Contraflow, contraflow, got to use the contraflow

Here we are we're Motorway Maintenance
It's our job to get the traffic through
Don't blame us we're Motorway Maintenance
We're just men with a job to do

Track Name: He Loves Only You
He loves only you, he told me last night
His love is so true, but what about you
He's so in love with you
Can't you see it's true

He loves only you
He told me last night
His love is so true
But what about you

But she's in love with you
And it makes her blue

Oh why can't you see
It's you that I love
I'm making my plea to heaven above
It's breaking my heart when we are apart
I love you not your friend
Will this pain never end

Why is love so cruel?
Why must we act like fools?

He loves only you
Don't say that it's true
He told me last night
No that can't be right
His love is so true
That's why I'm blue
But what about you?

I'm loving you
(Repeat to fade)
Track Name: Biggles In A Basket
Fly with me soon, in my balloon
Up in the sky, flying so high
In my balloon

Oh, I feel fine, up in the sky
Floating with you, through the white and the blue
In my balloon

We'll say cheerio, to the people below
Then we'll fly to the stars, Venus and Mars
In my balloon
Track Name: Sally's Friends
I know this girl
She's out of this world
She's got some friends
But I haven't counted them

We're Sally's friends, We're Sally's friends
We're born again Christians
We're Sally's friends

She loves all anthropods
She likes to talk to God
She'll drive you round the bend
But you should meet Sally's friends

We're Sally's friends, We're Sally's friends
We're born again Christians
We're Sally's friends

Cain and Abel, Mary in the stable
Mind those nails, last supper on the table
Don't get cross man, God's still the Boss Man
Ku Klux Klan burning people when they can

Choir boys up for rent, sexually deviant
Ten Commandments needing an amendment
Bells in steeple irritate the people
Too doctrinal, rather have a Bacchanal

They're Sally's friends
Both of them
Track Name: Death On The Clyde
We're going on a honeymoon
We're going in June
We'll be taking a room by the blue lagoon
I'll be crooning this tune beneath the silvery moon

We'll watch the Scandaroons
In the afternoon
Forming demilunes when it's opportune
Do Be De Do Do, De Do Be De Do

Why do we have to go?
It's great in Glasgow, it's only five below
We'll go down to the Clyde and take formaldehyde
That's how my mother died
And I cried

Though young Conservatives Politically purgative
Mentally vegetative
Their love was agglutative

We'll leave the octuplets
That you had for a bet
Delivered by the Vet at the maisonette
While I was in Tibet with the architect

I wrote a rondolet
On a beautiful day
Drinking Chardonnay and cafe au lait
In a Chevrolet near the Bay of Biscay

I still don't want to go
I'd prefer Mexico, or even Borneo
I want to do him in while on the dunnikin
I'll give him catechin

The feudal right to maritage
Extinct except in Stevenage
Exclusive to the privileged
Who manufacture sausages

Those were the days my friend
I thought they'd never end
They drove me round the bend
