The Lyrics

Kilmarnock prison inmates used to make some wonderfully odd gnomes - I've got one that's peeking out from under a manhole cover.. I don't remember one like this, but I'm sure that's because my memory is failing.

I guess this is a bit of a gnomic love song
I've got a little round pond that I fish in
I've got a fishing rod in poor condition
When they got a coin
They throw one for making a wish in

I got some red paint colouring my big hat
Got a bright blue jacket
I got thirteen more concrete gits in the garden to look at

One's in a dress, just right
And she's got fishnet tights
Got an amazing pair of concrete titties
And that is how it goes, whenever I dream
What I see through the steam:
There'll be ho-body gnome

She sings the obligatory Hendrix songs,
And the inevitable leather thongs
Lace up the front of her low-cut satin basque
She's got moss growing 'tween her fingers,
She's got one leg cocked on a drain
Got concrete stilettos, shiny with white gloss paint

She's got blank, staring eyes
Raining, it looks like she cries
And that always makes me cry, too
Cry, too
Cry, too
Ooh, babe - made of concrete, not chrome
There she is: ho-body gnome
I've got a pair of concrete boots,
I sit on old tree roots

I'm not sure whether it counts as quite sweet, or rather sad, that there's somebody out there sitting at their keyboard waiting for the day's new releases just so they can vote 1s irrespective of how good/bad/funny/indifferent a parody is. I mean, just how much of a life does someone need to get if that's their idea of a way of spending their time?
