A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

I couldn't find these lyrics the other day, and by random chance I just located them on an Aztec Camera site. There was a live duet between Roddy Frame and Edwyn Collins on the B-sides of "Good Morning Britain."

"Consolation Prize"
Words and music by Edwyn Collins

A thousand violins will play for you
While you set and roll your deep blue eyes
A thousand to win
A thousand you lose
But I'll be your consolation prize
All you do is sigh

I wore my fringe like Roger McGuinn's
I wore it hoping to impress
So frightfully camp, it made you laugh
Tomorrow I'll buy myself a dress
How ludicrous

I don't mean to pry
But didn't that guy
Crumple up your face a thousand times?
He made you cry

I'll be your consolation prize
I know
I'll never be man enough for you
I'll never be man enough for you
I'll never be man enough for you

Current Soundtrack: Marion & Ballroom

Current Mood: uncomfortable
