lyrics

Life is comin’ fast and it is unregulated
Forgetting all the things we have already debated
Gettin’ just a little bit disorientated
Flim flam flim flam
Everybody starts to feel a little unstable
Happy to accept a little group reappraisal
It’s the perfect time to bring some common sense to the table
Flim flam flim flam

Oh oh flim flammin’
Play it hip so the message sticks
Oh oh flim flammin’
Take it downtown – it’s profound
Oh oh flim flammin’
Give support - never face the onslaught
And that’s the path to success

Very real concerns oh we will never ignore them
We treat you with respect and with lot of decorum
But now is not the time - an inappropriate forum
Flim flam flim flam
“Surely this behaviour will cause revolution?”
In practice insurrection is no favoured solution
We all return to comforting and known institutions
Flim flam flim flam

Oh oh flim flammin’
Be the man in the traffic jam
Oh oh flim flammin’
Be the guy with the cheap supply
Oh oh flim flammin’
Take the box and the overstocks
Oh and that’s the path to success

Oh oh flim flammin’
If you’re hip to the hypocrit
Oh flim flammin’
You don’t mind being undermined
Oh flim flammin’
Represent the ingredients
You’re on the path to success

Middlemen overspend
Circumvent dissonance
Recompense one percent
Malcontent president

Living in the future and we’re all disappointed
Everyone we hoped would have their influence voided
Has either been rewarded or they’ve been reappointed
Flim flam
Society is beaten up exhausted and bleeding
Everybody sighing, giving up and conceding
Tomorrow getting bleaker every second we leave it

Oh oh flim flammin’
Take it downtown take it downtown
Oh oh flim flammin’
Take it downtown take it downtown
Be the man in the traffic jam
Be the man in the traffic jam

about

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
