Mr Gabardine Man

Hey, Mr Gabardine Man

Give a flash for me

I’m not prudish so let’s see what God’s bestowing you.

And hey, Mr Gabardine Man

Give a flash for me

Don’t hide your dingle-dangle organ

They’re not following you.

 

Outside the Barnsley Empire

So proudly you would stand

With your chopper in your hand

Showing off your swollen glans

To your following of fans

Keeping conk for police vans

How we jeered their rotten, spoilsport interference

 

But, sad to say, your luck ran out

Your fortune had to drop

When a young ambitious cop

Kinda caught you on the hop

So your climax was a flop

And he sadly made you stop

“The Last Turkey in the Shop”

Your routine which brought about your court appearance.

 

So Hey, Mr Gabardine Man

Give a flash for me

I’m not prudish so let’s see what God’s bestowing you.

And hey, Mr Gabardine Man

Give a flash for me

Don’t hide your dingle-dangle organ

They’re not following you.

Self-revelatory villain 'ell? It will never stand up in court. It's not only hard rain that's gonna fall. I wrote about this subject for one of the Sunday papers: Exhibitionism, the pull-out supplement.

Hey - was this timed to coincide with Bob Dylan getting his Presidential Medal of Freedom? He could have sung your version to Obama and proved to his fans that he was still the anti-establishment icon he used to be as Obama snatched the medal back! :-) Another inspired piece from a master mickey-taker.

You've done it again Mr Coopey. Absolutely stunning. I think you should send it to Bob. Don't let's talk about footie eh? Cruel world.

Good to see the work again.

Regards,

Graham
