about

My arch nemesis comes to town wreaking havoc and pinching my clothes. I get to feel what it's like to have that power for a moment.

The Big Band sound of "a lot to drink about" was recorded at a session with Adele Pickvance on bass,Stuart Perera,Dave and Bill Miller on guitars , Glyn Hickling on trumpet and Ben Grant on sax.

lyrics

One sip and I knew
I wouldn't get drunk that night.
The bells rang ,the wind blew
and I had a lot to drink about.
She was back in town,
fear reigned,worlds collided,
hearts sank,
What would be left once she'd moved on?

My cracked lips sting,
and I've got a lot to drink about
last time I saw her she was wearing something of mine.

She finds some john in a bar,
"hey little lady,I'm gonna buy you a drink,what do you think about that ?"
Well the drink didn't touch the sides
and neither did he as he fell into her pit.

My cracked lips sting,
and I've got a lot to drink about
last time I saw her she was wearing something of mine.

One day the heat got too hot,
the wind moved on and the bells rang
in another part of her world..
all that was left were her boots...
I tried them on for size...
The tiles cracked under my heels..
Hey sunshine,lay down,
I'm gonna walk all over you !

My cracked lips sting,
and I've got a lot to drink about,
last time I saw her she was wearing something of mine.

My cracked lips sting
and I've got a lot to drink about
next time she sees me I'll be wearing something of hers.
