QuotesEdit

Andy: “Even before recording a note of English Settlement we were trying out some of its songs on our live audience, to tighten them up and see what they would register on the clapometer basically. Again, this one was a joy to play live as I always felt borne along by its clattering clockwork. Time to scat and bend notes the more familiar it became. This pre-Settlement outing doesn't sound half bad in a nervous sort of way, we're growing into it. Where's the dip that goes with my carrot nose?”

LyricsEdit

It isn't even winter and I'm freezing, freezing,

This sort of feeling isn't pleasing,

And what I want to know, man,

Why, oh why,

Does she treat me like a snowman


She's been building me,

Up quite steadily,

Seems like I've been here years and years and years and years

I wait patiently,

Froze in history,

All ice-water is tears and tears and tears and tears


She treats me far too frosty,

This hanging on has cost me dear


It isn't even winter and I'm shivering, shivering,

Waiting for the love that's not delivering,

What I want to know, man,

Why oh why,

Does she treat me like a snowman


It seems you would say I was too soft-hearted,

If you made a dunce-cap I'd don it!

People will always be tempted to wipe their feet,

On anything with 'welcome' written on it


It isn't even winter and I'm freezing, freezing,

And this sort of feeling isn't pleasing,

And what I want to know, man,

Why, oh why,

Does she treat me like a snowman
