Song – Nonsense Jig

Music

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.

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.
