    There's a line in this Fay Dunnaway film, don't know which one, where she says "every whore knows failure", which I thought was really interesting . All these girls lived crazy double lives. The chorus is "they used to call you stumble, they used to call you baby giraffe," that's from an ex-girlfriend, who isn't a prostitute! She's incredibly tall and clumsy, but in a really cute way." http://www.2-4-7-music.com/newsitems/jan02/elbow.asp

    Stumble "That's a really simple thing we recorded in a dressing room in Germany, so it's got a really loose vibe. Craig really didn't like the shaker on it, he was like 'oh I played it out of time,' and I was like 'no you didn't, it's a big room'. So the shaker's out of time all the way through, but I don't think it matters. Lyrically it's a couple of things. It's basically about a prostitute who worked in this brothel above the guitar shop in Bury I worked at. I watched the customers going up and down the stairs every day and we shared a kitchen with them, so I'd go up to make the brews and got to know the girls quite well.
