In the 31 years since the release of Up The Junction by Squeeze something has always bothered me about an otherwise brilliant song. Check out the following lyrics and tell me what’s wrong.
This morning at four fifty
I took her rather nifty
Down to an incubator
Where thirty minutes later
She gave birth to a daughter
Within a year a walker
She looked just like her mother
If there could be another
Yes, I know what you’re all thinking… babies aren’t born in incubators. They are born in Maternity Wards and may be transferred to an incubtor if there are problems. Does anyone know of any other really stupid lyrics by Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook?
For you Fans out there here’s a bit more classic stuff.
