"Strange Tales, Strange Tails" is a song by Andy Partridge. A Go 2 outtake, it appeared in 1980 as the B-side of the "Respectable Street" 7" single. It later appeared on the 1990 odds-and-ends compilation Rag and Bone Buffet.


Andy: “One of the two worst songs we ever recorded [the other being ‘Officer Blue’], originally for Go 2.”


Strange tales

Scribbled on a uniform

Strange tails

Scribbled down in cuneiform

It had been written

You had been bitten

You're now a cat

Where you used to be a kitten, now

Strange tales, strange tails

Strange tales

Scribbled on the shelter walls

Strange tails

Scribbled as the idol falls

Strange tales, strange tails
