Shaken Not Stirred

lyrics by Jeremy Kidd, music by Hal Lewis

The events of yesterday,
Are described in an offhand way,
And these, the men of destiny,
Echo heroic versions of the past.

In Japan an automaton claims a victim!

And they're shaken but not stirred,
As if they never heard,
The World described in pictures,
Real life is just a scream away,
Put your hopes and dreams away,
Stay at home, the ideal drone,
And watch real life and death,
And be shaken not stirred.
I live in the world of cages,
Mutants prowl the streets,
I haven't left my room in ages,
Thermo-static keeps it nice and warm.

In Japan an automaton claims a victim!

And they're shaken but not stirred,
As if they never heard,
The World described in pictures,
Real life is just a scream away.
Put your hopes and dreams away,
Stay at home, the ideal drone,
And watch real life and death,
And be shaken but not stirred.

Shaken Not Stirred quotes...

I can remember recording this first at Ken Giles' place in Bridlington. My abiding memory of playing live is at Hull Trades and Labour Club with Roy back stage watching me play it. It felt like he was checking I got it right after all that time in the studio.   Matt

We must've played the songs a hundred times at gigs and rehearsals before we recorded them. I remember going in the studio and actually hearing the words Jerry was singing for the first time. We never really knew what they were before that. This one knocked me out.   Lou
