Lyrics
Been Here, Been There
Been Everywhere
Been Up, Been Down
Been All Around
But I Can't Find a Decent Girl
No I Can't Find a Decent Girl

Don't drink, Don't Smoke
Just A, Just A Bloke
Go to Work, Not One to Shirk
But I Can't Find a Decent Girl
No I Can't Find a Decent Girl

I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl

How Can There Be.
No-one For Me
Chica, Jeeka, Up and Ready
Veeka, Meeka, Show Their Belly
Drivin' Me Insane

Want to Get Wed
Have Loads of, Load of Kids
But Fate it Just, Just Forbids
But I Can't Find a Decent Girl
No I Can't Find a Decent Girl

In a Strange Place, an Unusual Face
I’m Out, Out, Out of Step, Not in the Race
And I Can't Find a Decent Girl
No I Can't Find a Decent Girl

I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl

How Can There Be.
No-one For Me
Chica, Jeeka, Up and Ready
Veeka, Meeka, Show Their Belly
Drivin' Me Insane

I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl
I Want, I Want a Decent, Decent Girl

It sounds like it was imported from eastern Europe for some reason. Your stepson is a smooth character - he should have no probs, girlwise. I hope you've put this up on all the sites, as it deserves much exposure.

He doesn't have any problems except finding someone to settle down with, rather than just a good time.
Thanks for the lovely comment, not sure which sites except this and YouTube/Vimeo, any other suggestions?

hackneybloke said 1120 days ago (February 27th, 2014)
decent shag
len showed me this film and tried to persuade me it didn't smack of misogyny and the objectifying of women. he said nah (that's cockney for 'no'....it's about a nice guy looking for a nice girl, but all he can see around him is the kind of girls you wouldn't introduce to your mother (unless your mother happened to run a knocking shop). so, given that len is a good friend, i decided to say that i agreed with him (i'm low on friends).

i told len he should wait and have a few more cutaways, but he gets impatient and wants to post. if i were george lucas he'd be saying, "look let's just make the space-ship out of tin foil, nobody will notice".

anyway, he's done an amazing job....i keep telling him to give up his 9-5 and make movies with me.

i also love the track....especially the chica jeeka section - very catchy.
well done Len.

Hard to come by
Another holy s**t trip into lengold quirkdom. Instantly infectious music and a surprisingly (should I be surprised? ... probably not) polished video that looks like several metric tons of effort went into it. Top-notch package. I think "Decent Girl" would also be a great name for a band.
