The Gramercy Theater
Tony Maimone on bass and Jean Cook on violin
guitar,vox: the welsh whale on a stolen guitar
(Jon Langford)
In and out of his make-up
With a whale-bone for a leg
And the bar down by the quayside
Was a goldmine everyday
Just like sitting on an oil well
When the motion picture people came to stay
White whaler, big heart
Out there hunting with the hounds
Caught much more with a camera
Panned across the faces of the people hanging round
So all the local were extras and all the locals got paid
There's no acting in the flat black eyes
Of old women as the Pequod sailed away
40 summers dived out of reach
And on a TV round the back
We've got a picture on a videotape
Of the big fish that never came back
So far from the heart of Europe
The young left long ago
To look for work in London
Boston and Chicago
The Mekons have a new CD coming out on August 21st 2007 Be on the lookout for their CD "Natural"
