[Intro 1]
(Talking)

Am
      I can recall the day quite clearly. A Friday in July. A sweltering eighty degrees. 
Am
Martin Jarvis was completing his week in dictionary corner; he’d been reassuringly average. 
Am
Somewhere in the Shires, surgeons had entered the mind of Mr Stinchcombe and found black apes, 
Am
gibbering on dark lawns. I’d spent the afternoon becoming increasingly frustrated with the 
Am
grooming agitator on my lime Dyson. I was due in Parbold at seven fifteen, and wasn’t going to make it. 
Am
Telephoning the person who needed to know this, I found myself caught up on a crossed line, 
Am
something I’d not experienced for years. I listened in with quiet delight.


[Intro 1 cont.]
(Talking)

Am
It appeared that someone called Bill, whilst out walking the bounds that morning, 
Am
had looked in to Top Acre, and been horrified to see the almost visible ribcage of a foal, 
Am
which belonged to the straggle-haired girl from Keeper’s cottage, whose name, 
Am
if this was a Helen Fielding novel, would be something like ‘Martha Flanagan’. 
Am
But the countryside is never as romantic as townsfolk believe it to be, 
Am
and the girl’s name was Karen Henderson. On closer inspection of the poor emaciated beast, 
Am
it was agreed that a visit upon the child’s father was in order. 
Am
Not a mission to relish apparently, as the man in question was affected by a strange disquiet, 
Am
which gnawed away at his faith, and it was rumoured his days were spent sucking on the 
Am
bleached bones of his dead mates, whilst writing songs for the hospice – one of which goes like this:

 
[Verse 1]

                    E        Am                         E        Am
Na na na na na na na na na na na,   Na na na na na na na na na na na
                     E        Am                         E        Am
Na na na na na na na na na na na,   Na na na na na na na na na na na.

Oh sucking on the bleached bones of my dead mates
                                            E                         Am
Trying to get to Parbold for a quarter past seven, and it isn’t gonna happen.


[Verse 2]

           E                       Am         E
Hospice, I think you’re marvellous, hospice I sing your praises
Am       E                 Am               E
 On high days and holidays; I big you up on high days and holidays
Am                E                 Am                 E
 I hear you go on some good outings; I’d like to go on one of your outings
Am                          E
 Please take me with you on one of your outings.


[Chorus]

A               D        A       E
 I heard you’re going to Billing Aquadrome
A              D        A       E
 I hear you’re going to Billing Aquadrome
A           D       A       E
 I’ve never been to Billing Aquadrome
A          D           A       E
 Let me go with you to Billing Aquadrome
A              D     A       E        A D A E    A D A E
 Please let me go to Billing Aquadrome……………..
