Franklin my dear
Wilkommen and Bienvenue to the annus newus.
Take a boat trip up to the icy dark northern seas.
On board a ship with poor Lord Franklin.
Stuck between quickly freezing arctic ice flows,
his ship and crew lost forever.
Only the mournful voice of a friend left behind to tell the tale.
And inbetween all that a bunch of music and voices all thrown together,
telling of Saddam, life on the Welsh coast, the twee sixties, fried heads and Spanish acid.
Oh Lordy Lordy its time for another child without an iPod.
