lyrics

Everybody!
You want to be
The top dog
Permanently
And that consumes
Your waking hours
Until such time
That they're not waking hours

The human mind is an amazing piece of kit
But it's accepting nature doesn't really sit
With it's capacity for always being right
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight

There'll be a quarrel over who said what to whom
There'll be a quibble over when you should say "whom"
There'll be some pettiness about some oversight
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight

Everybody!
Loves inconsequence
And they're loving it
In the progressive tense
And you know
To win this time
Won't take
Too much thinking time

Now nit-picking over technicalities
And feeling pressure over trivialities
It all means that there is just one sure thing in sight
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight

There'll be some bickering about a point inferred
There'll be recriminations over the dessert
There'll be a fracas over something misapplied
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club tonight
There'll be annoyance over yet-unknown offence
There'll be some stress over ambiguous expense
There'll be some sulking and a whispering campaign
There'll be a squabble at the rotary club again

Why is there so much violence in Britain today?
When people can't control themselves, it's moral/ social decay
We're on a downward spiral it's the end of the age
We're sinking deep into the mire of self destruction and rage

There'll be some fisticuffs and something will get spilt
There'll be a cry of "just forget it, you'll get killed"
There'll be a tussle it'll help to clear the air
There'll be a story to relate to the au pair
There'll be squabble at the rotary club tonight

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'.
