I got home From the pub I'd have a lovely time I told you That he sent his love You asked how's his wife? How's she getting on in her new job? How's the kids since they lost the dog? I had no idea I never thought to ask We'd spent the whole night Talking crap We'd discussed How to design a bus Are double deckers better with one stair or two? Is James Bond Meant to be the same one In every film, or is it a title like M or Q? Star Trek TV series - which is worst? What band's second album's shorter than the first? These and many other Vital questions had been asked We'd spent the whole night talking crap Since we've been talking surely Moutain ranges have been formed We've known each other since before Our goalkeeper was born Next time we get together Even if takes all night We'll go through the news agenda And we'll the world to rights Set the world to rights So we convened After work the next week We had a lot to do so we began at six We kicked off With disputes about God I said I think we're going to need some crisp How can tolerance deal with hate? That one took until twenty to eight Then how to balance free speech with the corporate media's power Got sorted in a quarter of an hour Sex and gender, race relations Poverty and Crime We'd answered all these questions In advance of closing time And as we clinked our whiskies To success we had to laugh To think we could have spent the whole night talking crap In the morning I leapt out of bed Eager to revisit what we'd said On a piece of paper there was just eleven words And a picture of a penis shooting sperm People are all right if they are given half the chance I'd like to see the Dalia Llama disagree with that It's a mantra that I want the entire world to chant People are all right if they are given half the chance People are all right if they are given half the chance People are all right if they are given half the chance People are all right if they are given half the chance People are all right if they are given half the chance And now I've done my bit I'm knackered, so I'm going back Next time I'm in the pub I'm talking crap Next time I'm in the pub I'm talking crap

Please don't rewrite my bulletin Internal Comms If you rewrite my bulletin You will make it wrong You cannot make it sexy You cannot make it fun It's simply to inform all staff The canteen shuts at one Please don't upgrade my profile page The intranet guys The content on my profile page Was recently revised But now you have downgraded it to 2005 Mispelt my name and cut the text off Halfway through a - Please do not query my expenses The finance team Filling in the forms you sent me Took me half the week I promise you that this is not An international scheme To con the company out of The sum of 60p A card to sign and a Christmas Do A chat while we make a cup of tea Annual Appraisal An office life for me Further to me earlier Email to HR In retrospect I realise I went a bit too far Slashing all the tyres On the Change Consultant's car And setting off the fire alarm In the seminar In order to apologise, In The Usual Place, You will find that I have baked A gluten free cakes Receipts outlining from which budgets The ingredients came Are in a brand new bulletin On my profile page

about

This is the download-only version of our new single - if you'd like the physical version (a BADGE) please visit our main website www.mjhibbett.com/badges/

The lead track is a song about using the power of Drunken Pub Conversations for good, harnessing their might to solve the problems of the world, while the b-side is a modern folk song (but good).

The bandcamp and badges version of this single also comes with two exclusive tracks - cover versions by a couple of our favourite acts which have not been released anywhere before. It's a bargain AND a fashion statement!
