a pair of brown eyes
With a nod, perhaps, to Van; porcine, disagreeable bastard that he is (albeit quite excellent). If you\’ve ever seen the video for this one you might recall Shane MacGowan scrabbling in a trench puddle for his eyes. Or is that just a figment of a whiskey fueled half life ? I can no longer remember.
Where are my reading glasses ? I am feeding the seagulls.
Recorded at Elephant Studios, London. Produced by Elvis Costello.
