Jaki The Ladette

I wrote this initially as play on words around the the term Jack The Lad. However, as I was writing it this story of damaged young women emerged into view. I wasn’t going to write anything about that horrible person Savile but this just came out. I then took it to my friend Andrew and we recorded this.

Here comes Jaki the ladette

With the ladders in her tights

She’s been out speeding

For one too many nights

In a mirror through the smoke

Her mascara’s gone streaky

But she don’t see the joke

Staring back so freaky

Tries to roll a cigarette

Can’t see what she’s making

Drops skins down the loo

Hands won’t stop shaking

Ooh Jaki Jaki Jaki

Jaki the ladette

Ooh Jaki Jaki Jaki

Jaki the ladette

Wobbling on stilettos

She staggers to the bar

Empties coins on the counter

Can’t tell what they are

Orders a vodka and red bull

She’s teetering on the edge

Her hair looks just like it’s

Been dragged through a hedge

But here is the strange thing

No matter how stoned she gets

She can’t stop remembering

Like an elephant never forgets

How that creepy disc jockey

The one with the monster cigar

Raped her in her fifteenth summer

In the back of his Rolls Royce car

Ooh Jaki Jaki Jaki

Jaki the ladette

Ooh Jaki Jaki Jaki

Jaki the ladette

Well there we are then Tom Watson says that the person he is referring to is not Sir Peter Morrison (a close ally of Thatcher) so the plot thickens. As I said earlier to my mate in London there are an awful lot of skeletons rattling in an awful lot politicians closets and now the allegations are starting to fly even Pandora would have a job closing this box of tricks….. the next couple of months are going to see some of the most vicious politics we have ever seen in the UK. My breath is well and truly bated as someone said to me today WHAT NEXT?

Standing On The Beach At Fukushima

All remember Nagasaki
Never forget Hiroshima
Now we stand and cry together
On the beach at Fukushima
This is where we meet our Nuclear nemesis
The fuel companies are lying
Political leaders are lying
Certain scientists are lying
Just keep right on lying
Chernobyl partly melted down
It killed a million people
Fukushima is much more
Deadly for the Japanese
But that’s not where it ends
It’s only the beginning
Pollution in the atmosphere
The Pacific ecosystem
Is well and truly fucked
Mutant mammals birds and fishes
Turn up all around the globe
We’re irradiated, we don’t EVEN know
All remember Nagasaki
Never forget Hiroshima
Now we’re standing together
On the beach at Fukushima
We’re all in it together
On the beach at Fukushima
