Splott Man Lyr Req: The Postman's Knock (12) RE: Lyr Req: The Postman's Knock 10 Aug 11


I think line 2 is missing there GUEST.

I have long wondered what the third verse was. These versions above fit with the two different recordings I have of the song. So much thanks both.

When I was learning the song, I contacted an old friend who had done his tour of duty as a member of the band, to try and find that elusive verse. He contacted Simon N, and they came back with two lines of doggerel (bearing no relation to either of the above), which I expanded into the following.

On Monday a government leaflet on AIDS (that dates it!)
For gay folk and straight folk alike.
On Tuesday a Readers' Digest draw.
Well done! You've just won a bike.
On Wednesday some coupons for thruppence off Daz,
But ten pence of Bold's even better.
On Thursday some party political bumf
And on Friday, my goodness! A letter!
