Written in 2003 after several jam sessions with Darren Sherwell, Nonsense Jig is a simple enough tune with a cool little riff that sounds better with a little more distortion.

I like the words I think their sentiments are clear enough

V1

Nonsense is as nonsense does, Mum’s the word and gag the buzz!

The world teeters on the brink and people haven’t got time to think.

So round and round the argument goes, what it’s about nobody knows

The devil’s in the detail, they’re messin with your life, it’s always in the detail there’s gonna be some strife.

V2

Round and round the argument goes, what it’s about nobody knows.

The people ignoring every word, allowing lunatics undisturbed.

Arguing over this and that, raising revenue passing the hat.

Ad lib

Solo

V3

Passing laws to dumb us down, acting fools while playing the clown.

They dot their “I”s they cross their “T”s allowing no room for apologies.

They’ll save the world from going broke and remove our freedom with a stroke.

The devil’s in the detail, they’re messin with your life, it’s always in the detail, there’s gonna be some strife.

Music
Moved to tears by my first Floorgasm

From a very early age I have been in love with music. That love  grew and materialized in an ongoing affair for the past 40 years. In that time I have listened to and appreciated many different forms of music from the historical bombastic excess of Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow to …
