Lyrics

Bath Of Bacon
Bath Of Bacon version

The words just came when I opened my mouth The words just came when I opened my mouth The words just came - guess they came from the South The words just came when I opened my mouth They said "Whoooa! Bath of bacon!"
The tune just came when I took LSD The tune just came meant nothing to me The tune just came when I took LSD But I knew for sure it was no "A-B-C" It went "Whoooa! Bath of bacon!"
The dance just came to me there in the street The dance just came to me there in the street The dance just came and it looked real neat When the dance just came into my feet It went "Whoooa! Bath of bacon!"
Hamburg version

The words just came when I opened my mouth The words just came when I opened my mouth The words just came - guess they came from the South The words just came when I opened my mouth They said "Whoooa! Bath of bacon!"
The tune just came when I took LSD The tune just came meant nothing to me The tune just came when I took LSD But I knew for sure it was no "A-B-C" It went "Whoooa! Bath of bacon!"
We are the elephant men We are the elephant men We are the elephant men "Whoooa! Bath of bacon!"

Bath Of Bacon
It's really just the sound of a few mates failing to take seriously the fact they they've got an l.p. to make. It seems VERY early eighties now, but you must remember that there was a LOT of crap for us to clear out of the way in those days.

We were all disappointed at the way this came out. The concert was great, but logistics prevented us from making anything much more than a glorified bootleg. Still, live albums are best as souvenirs anyway, so I guess some people regard it fondly. Lots of entertaining photos to look at anyway...

    Blinking flip, I remember this one. It was, what 1984? - I mean, really, not metaphorically - and I was a journalist in Northampton (the Chronicle and Echo). I interviewed you in your terraced house and you played me the song where you sawed your leg off (only played twice presumably) and I chuckled and wondered when this clever man was going to run out of money and have to get a proper job (sorry, but I'd settled for routine and was a bit envious). Anyway, hello. And hoo-ra!
