Semi-Detached Suburban Mr. James
Manfred Mann
Written by John Carter and Geoff Stephens; released as a single with "Morning 
After The Party" as the B-side.

There are some errors made by bassist Klaus Voormann in the bridge and the 
final verse, so it's not my fault if it doesn't sound correct. :-)
