i love most things dexys, but this i don't quite get, despite repeated listens, or i don't get why it so frequently is hailed as mr lowlands masterpiece. but i guess it's in the lyrics, me being scandinavian and first of all occupied with music, and the musical part of this one isn't, extracted from the words, that hilarious in my humble you-know-what.
