Sacred objects from the attic..

Lyrics

Up the stairs, drop the trapdoor, lower the ladder, put on the light – Oh what a sight…

Clackers in the attic, first day covers
Knievel pump-o-matic, littered letters from other lovers
Postcard from Spain, rosette from Wembley
Ribena stain on the Gazette from the jubilee
Red dice white pips escaped Colditz do or die double six
Action Man's gripping hands, grabbing hold, holding on to Barbie bits
Esso coins on a pair of old flares,
brown sellotape joins on the Subbuteo players
On a stack of Look and Learns I see the reel to reel recorder
Still turns still squeals in the general disorder
And like a drop of water colour in a coloured water beaker
A tiny little voice comes from the tiny little speaker
I know that voice
And I dip my brush in my memory’s cup and the colours swirl
The colours swirl

It’s the juicy fruit girl - I remember the juicy fruit girl
She used to chew it all day long and if she kissed you - She’d slip it up beside her gum
This memory got me excited - I start thinking of looking her up on Friends Reunited
Oh I’d definitely tell her I was married - Otherwise my wife wouldn’t like it
Oh no you’ll never see that girl again
Oh no, not the juicy fruit girl

A 20 year tear's drawn up from the torn up little naughty boy
I flick a black jack wrapper at a red steel wonky wheeled Tonka toy
It hits a royal wedding mug with a glued up araldite handle
Stops in a web and bugs and a blue and white cup cake candle
Where the blind teddy lies by some buttons in a bag
He would have got for eyes if a moment could be had
Then I’m aware today is waiting down the stairs and far away
And I haven’t got a clue what I came up here to do anyway
So the bakelite light switch switched off leaves the past in the past
The bakelite light switch switched off leaves the past in the past
And the light the dark dismembers rushes down to the world
The light the dark dismembers rushes down to..

The juicy fruit girl - I can’t forget the juicy fruit girl
She used to chew it all day long and if she kissed you - She’d slip it up beside her gum – yum yum
This memory got me excited - I start really thinking of looking her up on Friends Reunited
I’d probably definitely tell her I was married - Otherwise my wife wouldn’t like it
Oh no you’ll never see that girl again - Oh no, not the juicy fruit girl

As you know this chewy little story's run by the fates
Couple of hours later in the cornershop with my mates
Lady drops a fiver on the floor and we all recognise her by the size of her jaw
Elbows in my sides couple of ribs couple of jibes couple of fibs
Funny vibes
She looks up says, “Hi”, so do I, “Nice to see you, to see you, nice to see you too”
Everything alright a couple of smiles in the aisles and then I...just walk by..doh!

The juicy fruit girl – I just walk by the juicy fruit girl
She still chews it all day long and if she kissed you - She’d slip it up beside her gum – to free her tongue
The fantasy's exciting – the reality's a tad more frightening
So I settle for buying my wife a pack of Orbit, because it’s kind to your teeth and that ain’t bad
Oh no you’ll never see that girl again - Oh no, not the juicy fruit girl
