11. `She was a woman of the next millennium but still she drowned in her own condominium’

  1. Great set list Dave but what about, The stink of lawyers’ dope that’s hidden in the floor. See you on the 28th, Will you be back at the Caravan Club in March? Cheers Kev

  2. My two teenage boys like the lines “they talk about equality but the girls don’t talk to me”. As well as “I hate it when girls tell me how hard done by they are, show me one little lady that can’t get laid” me? Every song is genius I’ll be there Hoping to hear vingettes. General Fritze

    • Can’t believe the boys are that old – don’t think I can get Vignettes though I’d love to but Bill and Tony are struggling as it is to get through so much stuff – a new song or two by the way

  3. Re-reading your blog with the mention of Tim minchen, he wrote a poem called “storm”. Got the grey matter working about the genius of your song “guess who’s coming to dinner” Still brought a smile to,the dial , it seems like a standard complaint trying not to,upset the poms, ha,! Unless it comes to the cricket. Oh yeah what time finish on Friday week. General Fritze
