Always had a roof above me, always paid the rent
No I've never set foot inside a tent
I couldn't build a fire to save my life
I lied about being the outdoor type

    I'm so glad that Even Dando met Tom Morgan. For those who don't know, this song was originally by the Australian band 'Smudge'. Although, Tom Morgan (singer from 'Smudge') wrote half of Dando's songs with him.

    Fantastic lyrics. I'm much the same as poetic_toupet. Such an accurate diagnosis!

    Wisftul, funny and sad. A total classic, and possibly the finest item in the Lemonheads' very impressive catalogue.
