Playing pocket billiards with a dandy

July 2, 2008

A short song from my recent London set, kindly captured on video by Momus. This song is part of a continuing song-cycle written around Lord Byron — lyrics below. There’s a reference to Byron’s horse; I can’t let the opportunity pass without mentioning that when he was a Cambridge undergraduate, Byron’s horse was called Oateater. My next album is looking likely to have quite a lot of horse content, in one way or another.

Let’s be honest, you’re a mincing little poser
But I want you to take me now.
You’re a ponce with a perverted constitution
But I’d like you to take me at some point this evening.

You shit! You shit! You metrosexual shit!
You shit! You shit! You metrosexual shit!

You cosmopolitan little cad, you’re entire family’s mad
You drink water and your horse drinks shandy.
Are you in a bit of bother? You fucker! You rotter!
Playing pocket billiards with a dandy.

You shit! You shit! You metrosexual shit!
You shit! You shit! You metrosexual shit!
