about

The third Eiscafe track. And I was overjoyed when David sent me this. The lyrics are a true story and I had been present the evening it all happened. In fact, I had convinced him to come along to The Buffalo Bar (RIP) after we had seen The Indelicates play at The Lexington. It's great that Slag To Love has been performed live by many differing incarnations, the first being David and I karaoking it (whilst strumming pink inflatable guitars) at Kevin Reinhardt's fabulous Bingo Master's Breakout.

lyrics

SLAG TO LOVE

I first met you in the bowels of the Famous Cock
You took me back to Bethnal Green and blew me off my socks
I showed you some magic tracks you said you liked what you saw
Then we took to the linoleum and made each other raw

What you did to me wasn't very nice
You broke my heart in two not once but twice
You took me for a fool and I tried hard to play it cool
'Cause I'm a slag to love

I knew you weren't the kind of girl to be just a one man band
But I hoped perhaps a little naively you'd be more than a one night stand
It was painfully obvious it would all end in tears
Especially when you left me with an embarrassing souvenir

What you did to me wasn't very nice
You broke my heart in two not once but twice
You took me for a fool and I tried hard to play it cool
'Cause I'm a slag to love

What you did to me wasn't very nice
You broke my heart in two not once but twice
You chewed it up, you spat it out, you chopped it into tiny pieces
You turned it into a casserole and then you made me eat it

Not literally, I'm speaking allegorically
I won't forget you but I forgive you
'Cause I've found someone new who's really very nice
She thinks I'm pretty cool, she's stayed round my place twice
She realises I'm quite a catch, she even sleeps in the wet patch

And I'm a slag to love
