about

In a pre-Euro 2012 football feeding frenzy when anyone with a bodhrán seems to be intent on having a cash-cow single coat-tailing on the exploits of the Irish team in Poland, frankly how could Theme Tune Boy NOT survey such a debased, cynical, opportunist, parade of event-junkie scum without concluding - I WANT IN!!!

lyrics

The invasion of Europe began through Hoek Van'
600 miles of Snelweg and Autobahn
Gotta strain the suds off the spuds or they'll turn to dust
but there's nowhere on the autobahn to park the bus

Park the bus, park the bus

Originally I wasn't meant to make it this trip.
a bridge too far and finances are zip
but fate and mates conspired and now I've got a seat
but only in the van tickets are like hens teeth

I told the lads I'd go but that there'd be no crisis
I'd find my own tickets left to my devices
the talk it turned to tactics as it inevitably must.
How far in do you reckon before we park the bus?

Park the bus park the bus park the bus
How far in do you reckon before we park the bus?

Told there might be tickets in the market square
no joy but I got Joxers autograph there
In my search he said the touts might yet serve some function
I found them not even deserving extreme unction

At one of those event dealie public urinals
I asked a local how he thought we'd do in these finals
don't know what your group opponents know but we've got you sussed
you're gonna try and nick a goal then park the bus

park the bus park the bus park the bus
you're gonna try and nick a goal then park the bus

Because you've no midfield and your key man plays
at championship level in the USA
where he never faces shackling and somehow now he must
try to nick a goal before you park the bus

outside the stadium near teary eyed
to make it this far and then be denied
I backed into a flight case marked F.A.I.
grabbed myself to a track suit and some bits besides

and now I'm Striding down the tunnel in the kit of my nation
UEFA Hi-Vis and accreditation
where presently I find out what the fly on the wall hears
when the gaffer gives instructions and the squad are all ears

familiar to my ear "Is important we are balance
-with shape is possible to play" I'm trippin on his parlance
His Master Yoda syntax slips me but the general thrust
is get stuck in grab a goal and then park the bus

park the bus park the bus park the bus
get stuck in grab a goal and then park the bus

Theme Tune Boy Limerick, Ireland

TTB had his special powers revealed unto him in the days before youtube when all one had to help remember 70's kids shows was the power of memory,late night Bravo and Buckfast.
Armed only with the latter and a battered six string, he served up a near perfect (well -fairly close at any rate) rendition of the theme of H.R. Pufnstuff ...words, chords, the lot
