about

Every time I sit down to watch a murder mystery they always have adverts for river cruises down the Rhine. I imagined what might happen if there was a dark undercurrent fuelled by booze and beautiful castles! Afterwards I realised that this might be my homage to 'LOLA' by The Kinks if it was performed by George Formby
Book me up for one now!

lyrics

I met her on a river cruise
Between the bingo and the vat of booze
The moon reflected of her varicose veins
And her laughter sounded like clearing drains.

The original version of this ran to over six minutes and seemed so cumbersome. This is still a long song, but it's now down to where I could not cut it any more. The middle eight doesn't actually come in the middle and I wonder if this is me being arty!
