about

'Fun of the Fair' is the new single from The Room in the Wood, released on Mar 6th, 2020. As the acclaimed 'Charmed' before, it is another brilliant take by the rejoined forces of Dave Jackson and Paul Cavanagh (former The Room/Benny Profane) - lifted from the new album 'We're the Martians, now.' that will be out on April 10th, 2020.

Stomping beats with nods to glam rock, name-checking T-Rex, 70s reminiscence and youth gang flair - all the right ingredients for a 3 minute POP song !

lyrics

Fun of the Fair

Where the party can spurts by the light of the moon
And the waltzer spins fast, whirling out of the past
Sticky kisses and tongues. All that fumbling round
All the fun of the fair - All the fun of the fair

As the dodgems collide to the sound of T.Rex
And the Boot Boys arrive - Tamla Motown and sex
There’s a thrill in the air - ultra-violence and fear
Hotdogs, donuts and weed, ruby wine, fags and speed

On the school playing field, as the fat sun goes down
Got a headful of tales - want to tell them to you
Got a sack full of shrooms, picked ‘em special for you
Where the party can spurts by the light of the moon

As the dodgems collide to the sound of T. Rex
And the Boot Boys arrive - Tamla Motown and sex
There’s a thrill in the air - lust and violence and fear
Hotdogs, donuts and weed. All the fun of the fair

Climbing over the wall - running into the trees
Got a sack full of swag - stole it special for you
I got a pack full of fags. I got some skins and some weed
Where the party can spurts by the light of the moon

As the dodgems collide to the strains of T.Rex
And the Boot Boys arrive - Tamla Motown and sex
There’s a thrill in the air - lust and violence and fear
Ruby wine, fags and speed. All the fun of the fair
All the fun of the fair
