Track Name: Two Spry Young Tars
Two spry young tars came home from the sea
Each looking for a maid when they met with sisters three
The tars had pluck and courage and the grit for long endurance
They had tested out their mettle in the cruellest of God’s elements

Hey! Hi-ho! There she blows!

The captain warned his boys not to spend their shilling
On meaningless pleasures like girls who were not willing
But these three sisters had appetites of huge proportions
For food and drink and daring-do that the ordinary whore shuns

Hey! Hi-ho! There she blows!

The sisters kept them busy and the tars were not complaining
Till the money all was spent and no love was left remaining
The sailors’ purses emptied in less than a week
And on the day of rest they were too tired even to speak

Hey! Hi-ho! There she blows!

Returning to the quayside the tars slipped straight aboard
To head back out to Greenland by the time the ice had thawed
The wind was fair and true as they rais-ed up full sail
Each tar had sought a maiden but now he’d take a whale

Hey! Hi-ho! There she blows!
Track Name: Everything Changes
We had our days
We had our days in the sun
We were the children of the chosen ones

We had a life
We had a life full of fun
But now it’s time to leave it all behind us

Coz everything changes
Nothing ever really stays the same
Yes everything changes
Even the deepest feelings go away
Track Name: The Badger Song
The badger’s alright
He comes out at twilight
All black and white
Just a brock in the night

Don’t you wish you could be a badger too?
Hiding from the sun and dancing in the moon
Everybody wants to be a badger
Just a brock in the night

Badgers aren’t grey
They’re not around in the day
They don’t care what you say
Not a brock in the day – but a brock in the night

Don’t you wish you could be a badger too?
Hiding from the sun and dancing in the moon
Everybody wants to be a badger
Just a brock in the night
Track Name: The Coral Caves of Runcorn Gap
It was a stormy day in Liverpool Bay
As the Viking fleet headed home
They pitched and yawed in the thund’rous roar
Their sails grew tattered and torn
As they headed home
Headed home
Headed home
Headed home on a stormy day

They’d traded with the Irish for livestock and hides
For gold, tin and copper with the Cornish Celts
They had solid blocks of salt from the Cheshire mines
And fleeces from the foothills of the Welsh
Then they’d headed home
Headed home
Headed home
Headed home on a stormy day

The nine daughters of the waves were the billow maidens
Who wildly danced through that winter night
Their mother, Rán, had her drowning net with her
And the sky was filled with fire
As they headed home
Headed home
Headed home
Headed home on a stormy night

The swell was huge and the sky was grim
On the mighty surge Rán pulled them in
As drunk old Ægir stirred the briny broth
He smashed the fleet apart on the Wirral rocks
And took nine score young warriors back
To a grave beneath the waves
To drink golden mead in the coral caves
Of Runcorn Gap
Track Name: You Don't Please Me
Last night I said these words to my girl
“You know, you don’t even try
I’ve had enough of your lazy ways
It’s long past time for you to say goodbye”

“You don’t please me
Like you used to
You don’t please me any more”

I changed the number on my SIM card
I changed the lock on my front door
I took back my car keys
And said that thing that I’d put off so many times before

I said
“You don’t please me
Like you used to
You don’t please me any more”

She’s had her day in the sun
I took her around the world as my companion
She thought that she’d got it made
But last night I told her she’d be on her way

I said
“You don’t please me
Like you used to
You don’t please me anymore”
