We made it through the badlands of old St Lou
We didn’t have a choice
Stumbled round the snowy city
We discovered we had a voice
And we knew what we were on about
But they didn’t have a clue
They couldn’t see how Clean we were
They didn’t know what we were up to

Despite the falls and frosty dorms
Profound momentum kept
Rolling on, before the dawn
We found our place Schenec-
tady for midnight fundament
Harmoniously free
On the canine wonderbus

In those days of games at home
Where the weather wasn’t moist
We came to St Leonard’s frozen city
Where we lost our golden voice
And now misery and doorsteps
Were our quarter in the siege
From epicerie to bookstore
We would dart and when we’d darted we’d weave

Bonjour, comment allez-vous madame
Avez vous un slice of ham?
Pardonnez-moi pour le Franglais
I really wish I knew the proper way to say
I’m unprecedentedly cold
I’ve got frostbite on my shoulder
And I can’t remember when I felt such misery
I think my decency will unfold
My standards will all falter
I will swear and curse and I won’t take responsibility
And then I think I can anticipate what you would say:
“Why was your decency folded anyway?”

Bonsoir, how are you monsieur?
Je fais trop froid in this milieu
I’d rather be beside the Loire
I really think I’d better get back on the tar
I am ectomorphically lean
And equipped for only three seasons
Here’s the fourth in spades and now I really need to get out
Furthermore I am mean
I’m quick at very few things
But escape is one and I am heading for the South
And I hope you can appreciate where I will be
I am being beckoned by the western Key
