Here I am, I'm just lying on the floor with you
We had to get drunk, it was the only thing we could do
Well, it's funny 'coz I thought that it could have turned out quite romantic
But it isn't like that, which is fine, 'coz it means I can stand it Chorus:My best friend's girlfriend... I've got a girlfriendOh look, it's easy,
And you're somebody's girlfriend too
You know it only ever makes me down
You come round my house, give me information, then you go home
Well, it sure beats talking all that foolish rubbish on the telephone
But I don't know about all the implications of all this,
I just feel so-so,
But it's a measure of a feeling that I can't identify
that I can let you go Chorus Something's got a hold on my heart and it's making me down
You left me singing
"Don't sleep in the subway darling,
Don't standing in the pouring rain, Maureen."
Buy These Records
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...
A Scandal In Bohemia
The Albatross. A record, I feel, of its time. We were young(ish) and cocky and I think it shows. I still haven't learned to sing on this one, which bugs me too. Still, it was cheap and cheerful, and it helped us to meet an awful lot of people.
The Butcher Says..
Concerns a number of conflicting feelings (yes, we do have them) about the strangest summer I ever spent. Yes, it is a shame, and yes, I do miss them all. Dedicated to the free dinner circuit, and may it never ever happen again. Source: A Scandal In Bohemia liner notes

I've listened to Girlfriend a billion or so times and these lyrics at best approximate Pat's words. What are the real words? I can hear "Wendell" and "Marnie" spoken at times.
