Crash Test Dummies

Once, there was this kid who
Wouldn't go and change with the kids in the Change Rooms.
And when they finally made him
He wore his Speedos in the shower.
He couldn't quite explain that he'd always just worn them.

Then there was this girl who
Came from a respected family in the leafy town of Marlow.
And when she drank some vodka
She shook and threw up all over the parquet.
She couldn't quite explain that she'd always just done that.
Tut tut tut tut. Tut tut tut tut.

And then there was this boy who
Drank and smoked a little for the first time in a long time
And when he grabbed the handle
He fell and ended up in the Urgences.
He couldn't quite explain that son amie was female.
Ooh la la la. Ooh la la la.

    Saw them live at t in the park with Neil. Werent very good apart from that song. Not sure if the lyrics were the same though!

  2. What a great way to introduce characters! Was this inspired by a song then? Had no idea. This just felt quite real! I guess I like the song-lyrics type format then.

  3. havent heard that song in a long time, used to love it as a kid


Come on, spit it out. You're not normally this quiet so let's hear your thoughts.
