free download - JJ Burnel & baz warne "you are a swine"

Updated 24th November 2011

 

You are a swine

Swine live

Click the photo to hear the track (top-studio & bottom-Live)...

Whilst ensconced in Bath, JJ recently resurrected a waltz that had been floating around for a while. With its culinary-inspired lyrics and tongue-in-cheek delivery, he knew that the track wasn't destined for the album.

Nevertheless, he & Baz recorded it on Friday 14th October (with Louie Nicastro at the controls) and they have kindly given this studio out-take to us for your amusement and listening pleasure...

The lyrics are as follows:

Yes, you may call me a swine

'Cause I gave you a good time

And I had no secret plan to make you mine

You were just like a burger to me

Fast food like an apple from a tree

Fulfilled a function for me but not a gourmet meal

You may be happy with a piece of toast

I'm not satisfied until I have my Sunday roast

With a bottle of wine, you may call me a swine

Don't look for a sign, you may call me a swine!

On yeah...

With you, love was like in a queue

Raining on a taxi rank

With nothing very much to do except dream of a lamb shank

Yes you may call me a swine

I've been told much worse before

Reminds me of steak tartare

It's well prepared but it's raw

SWINE! SWINE! SWINE!

Yes you may call me a swine, you're a swine

SWINE! SWINE! SWINE!

Yes you may call me a swine, you're a swine

SWINE! SWINE! SWINE!

You-may-call-a-swine

A swiney, swiney, swine swine!

(Lyrics reproduced with permission of Copyright Control).

Swine received its live debut during the Baz & JJ acoustic set at the Weekendinblack Convention on Sunday 20th November 2011. The 'live' version from that day is available to download above and features the Convention Choir's backing vocals as shown below!
