Fitter Stoke Has a Bath

This song is by Hatfield and the North and appears on the CD reissues of the album Hatfield and the North (1974).

You don't suspect my life's a mess, you probably think it's groovy
Meeting people every day and see some place abroad
And I admit that when the time is right it can be quite a laugh
Even though that's not often
Eventually, I think that you will agree
I'm only putting lines out and shifting gears, missing years disappear
And as for you I couldn't bear to think of it
They said you were Swedish
You asked me for a chocolate bar
Then you went and spoiled it all by eating it
(What a pain, what a nause)

Can you imagine my delight was like some R. Crumb magazine come to life
Thank you ladies, you had us all
I hope you all enjoyed it
But just the same I'm happy just to sit around at home
With Pamela making cups of tea and washing clothes
Now anyone could easily see
I'm basically a cretin

Bing billy bong
Silly song's going wrong
Ding dong ding, dong ding dong
Ping pong ping, my head's gone

Bong billy bang
Desperate Dan, frying pan
Cling clong cling, clong cling clang
Michael Miles, bogey man
