Lyrics
For the love of straw – written november 2013


Chorus.
For the love of straw what’s going on,
For the love of straw watch out,
If you put too much on a camel’s back,
It’ll bring him down no doubt.
Verse 1.
Jack the lad, might be mad, thinks he knows what’s best,
Takes the higher moral ground, puts it to the test,
Job done, Jack collects his pay and rides into the sun,
He leaves us all a legacy it’s one more job well done.
Verse 2.
He says yes for everyone, here’s the final straw,
Best to have it right first time, too late when it’s law,
Jobs worth Jack has left the table, gone but not forgot.
He’s left the mess for someone else we all say thanks a lot.
Chorus.
For the love of straw what’s going on,
For the love of straw watch out,
If you put too much on a camel’s back,
It’ll bring him down no doubt.

Break as first 8 bars of verse
Job done, Jack collects his pay and rides into the sun,
He leaves us all a legacy it’s one more job well done.
Repeat chorus.

Chorus.
For the love of straw what’s going on,
For the love of straw watch out,
If you put too much on a cam

thank you Julian
Well I did reply earlier but I see it has vanished! - very strange indeed. I'm not really a fan of my subject in the [Jack Straw] I'm just surprised that people can do these things and not be answerable in law for these undemocratic and half witted and gullible decisions.

The female voice at the end is a sample taken from the Dimension library which made me laugh as well due to it's X factor tinged awfulness.

Clever stuff John
Your lyrics are always a cut above the average and have something important to say.

Music, as always, is wonderfully creative.

Cheers

Appreciate your comments very much, I felt it would be a grave omission not to immortalize our Jack in some musical way.

Best,

John.

I always thought
he had a great name and should have been a character in a comic.
Great song - loving the harmonies too.

I really enjoyed the keys in this, and tasted a pinch of Who flavoring. Cool song, and well sung and harmonized. Thanks for sharing.
