Lyrics

The Jazz Butcher Meets the Prime Minister
Hey gentlemen!
Yes Butcher?
Let's do a rock!

Well, think of all the animals there are in the world
Field mice, hampsters, lizards and frogs
Think of all the animals there are in the world
Alligators, alley cats, tigers and dogs

Think of what would happen if they all got mad
Turned around and beat you up and treated you bad
Think of what would happen with the horses in charge
Think about government entirely of fish

The Jazz Butcher
Meets the Prime Minister
Ooh, Jazz Butcher
Eats the Prime Minister

Surprisingly tasty!

Now think of all the people who are in prison today
Men who would torture, and murder and rob
Think of all the people locked in prison today
Hindley, Brady, Arding and Hobbes

Arding & Hobbes is an old department store in S. London

Oh think of what would happen if they got free
Taking out their vengeance on Society
Think of what would happen with an Elvis in charge
Think about government entirely of crooks

The Jazz Butcher
Meets the Prime Minister
The Jazz butcher
Beats the Prime Minister

Ask anybody (Yammerings)

Anyone here seen the guitars?
Ah, this must be them now.

Yeah, The Jazz Butcher
Meets the Prime Minister
The Jazz Butcher
Beats the Prime Minister
Yeah, The Jazz Butcher
Meets the Prime Minister
The Jazz Butcher
Beats the Prime Minister

Bloody Nonsense
The Jazz Butcher and his group are not in the business of belonging; they are too old and too obstreperous to conform to some attention-seeking image or commercially viable formula. Rather, they bring their not inconsiderable talents to bear on whatever happens to be in the way at the time. The results can only be described as essential.

The Gift Of Music
This record collects together the various singles that have been issued in England to date under the much-abused name of the Jazz Butcher, to wit: me. I rather like having them all in one place like this - it makes for a nice, noisey muck-it-up sort of disc that is ideal for leisure time at home, on the beach, in you local club.... hell, ANYWHERE!!!

Arding & Hobbs
Most impressed to find a song lyric that mentions Arding & Hobbs!

My affection for that Grace Bros anachronism of a retail emporium comes mainly from it featuring in Michael De Larabietti's '70s trilogy of supposed kids' books, The Borribles, where it's recast as Harding & Nobbs. Also, it gets blown up by a terorist in some late '70s film called NightHawks, starring Sylvester Stallone. I shit ye not.

Of course, they've re-'branded' it now as Allders and got rid of the neon lettering, formerly a local landmark, particularly as one looked down Lavender Hill. Sods.

Pip pip!
