Aikmans

May 28, 2009

Please join the Facebook group dedicated to saving Aikmans. It’s where I played most of my songs for the first time, the only place that’s ever paid me to play, and spiritual home to The St Andrews Scene which I still claim to have been part of.

I’m so sick and tired of feeling so wired as if there’s no escape, man
I need to pull out my finger, get it together, put myself in shape, man
I don’t need to make myself so stressed
Burnt-out, fried-out, broke and depressed
Need to ask Malcolm for a pint of Best
And live life in Aikmans

Unless I unload I’m going to explode, I’m gonna blow a fuse, man
There’s only one way to pick up my day and overcome the blues, man
Gonna call up my friend Francois
Bundle everybody into his car
Gonna make our way to my favourite bar
And live life in Aikmans

I’m in Aikmans, I’m in Aikaikmans, I’m in Aikmans
I’m a singsong man, I’m a popquiz fan, I’m in Aikmans
Upstairs is packed beyond all sense
The only space downstairs is by the gents
Everyone’s rocking to the guys from Fence
Who sing live in Aikmans

I’d be so happy in my Aikmans world
Oh so happy, in my Aikmans world

I’m in Aikmans, I’m in Aikaikmans, I’m in Aikmans
I’m a singsong man, I’m a popquiz fan, I’m in Aikmans
Upstairs is packed beyond all sense
The only space downstairs is by the gents
Everyone’s rocking to the guys from Fence
Who sing live in Aikmans

    You should record this and send it to me, in case we end up compiling an Aikmans benefit album!

    A couple of other people have written songs about it only this week!

    Cool! Let me know when it’s done. :D
