lyrics

The cat with a frown
The mouse with a smile
If the neighbours complain
Let's let them stew for a while
If nothing I know
Then nothing I say
Tip my cap to the fish on memory lane
If nothing is new
And we are all crows
The search is in vain
Cos nobody knows
While you were digging your head in the sand
I slipped and fell in the sea
And I broke my nose when I fell off the family tree

Enough is enough
The story renowned
The mouse got the cream
But the cat nearly drowned
So now we're overrun by mice
And if I take my own advice
I'd invite you on a one way trip down memory lane
For once in my life
I'm telling the truth
If my colours would change
Who knows what I'd do
While you were digging your head in the sand
I slipped and fell in the sea
And I broke my nose when I fell off the family tree
I broke my nose when I fell off the family tree

about

Mr Steve Bognor Regis, UK

Just who is Mr Steve? The best word to describe him is "unpredictable". When not singing with eclectic rock duo Last Chance To Escape, Mr Steve creates music from anything he can find - guitars, children's toys, cutlery, piano, African drums, pots and pans, synthesisers...even cat litter. With influences as diverse as Eels, Puscifer, Nick Drake & Roxette, Mr Steve brings tasty food to the table. ... more
