Colin: “The vocal sound on this track gave rise to a lot of Elvis impersonations, I remember. Nevertheless, it's an ode to my home town. A plea for the forgotten. It's perhaps my woodiest song to date.”

LyricsEdit

Album versionEdit

Boarded up

Yeah we're boarded up

Nailed up shut

Yeah we're boarded up


Music venue has had it's day

Deathwatch beetle band moved in to play

Groups don't come down from London way


Cos we're boarded up

Yeah we're nailed up shut

Two by fourded up

Yeah we're boarded up


Touring companies stay away

Rats and mice take the centre stage

Carpenters mate have a field day


Boarding up

Yeah we're nailed up shut

Two by fourded up

Yeah we're boarded up


Pubs and clubs had the chop

Making way for a superstore plot

Some town planner didn't know when to stop


Boarding up

Come and see us nailed up shut

Don't wait too long now cos we're boarding up

Yeah we're boarded up

Demo versionEdit

Boarded up

Yeah, we're boarded up

Nailed up shut

Yeah, we're boarded up


Music venue has had its day

Death watch beetle band moved in to play

Groups don't come down from London way


Cos we're boarded up

Yeah, nailed up shut

Two-by-four-ded up

Yeah, we're boarded up


Touring companies stay away

Rats and mice take the centre stage

Carpenter man have a field day


Boarded up

Yeah, we're nailed up shut

Two-by-four-ded up

Yeah, we're boarded up


Pubs and clubs had the chop

Woodworm laugh, drunk on the rocks

Some town planner didn't know when to stop


We're boarded up

Yeah, boarded up

Come and see us, nailed up shut

Yeah, we're boarded up
