Description
It's about one of my neighbours who just had a little concrete drive made for his caravan [see picture] which as ths song tells you used to be parked on the public highway. Well it all started when a friend of mine bet me I couldn't write a song about it so I did. It's quite an old song as it was written in November 2002 but this version was recorded this year.

Lyrics
Cyril’s got a caravan, Cyril’s got a car,
Cyril is a man with his mind in a jar,
He brings out his caravan for all to see –
Then he puts it away just in time for tea.

There’s one more thing that you ought to know -
It was parked on the grass when it wasn’t on show,
I thought he’d have had himself a concrete space,
Something he could utilize in every case.

8 bar bridge
Then one day and out of the blue,
0utside Cyril’s there was somebody new,
A builder and his truck with a sign demanding.
Your attention please for a new hard standing.

Chorus
Now everybody’s looking at Cyril’s hard standing,
It’s been in the air for quite some time,
Everybody’s admiring Cyril’s hard standing-
Cyril’s hard standing looks just fine.

Now that it’s here and it’s here to stay,
With Cyril so proud keeping fans away,
Envious folks that are getting in a flap.
About the new hard standing Cyril’s put on the map.

8 bar break – repeat Chorus

It’s always there and a sight to see,
It looks real good and it don’t have to move.
It don’t have to be in the street no more,
‘Cos it’s always on show and it’s always in store.

Repeat Chorus

Guitar break

Repeat Chorus.

thank you
A bit of a silly song Dick I think which is proving to be as popular as a rattlesnake in a lucky dip !! I think maybe I should do some ambient stuff next time.

I would never
bet against you writing a song about anything. Not just writing a song - but a fun and very catchy one too. Love the clever harmonies and the production is spot on too. Unusual reverse ending. Downloaded. Thanks.
Happy New Year John.
Cheers
Len

In answer to the question - I'm still waiting.

Glad you liked the doo wops - they're never far from my heart, they are also known as the forgotten third of rock'n'roll.

Best wishes,

John.

The End
You may never see this, but how did you do the ending with the backwards sounds?

the end
you know, to be honest I don't remember doing this but I'm certain it's just the reverse effect found in with Cubase's edit options. Not even sure what it is, sounds a bit spooky.
