Pop Lyric sheets: A Hard Night's DIY
Gadzooks, the Pre-fab Four are back. A new Rutles album, `Archaeology', is due out later this month...
Friday 04 October 1996
I knew the songs, followed the van
Like four pied pipers - but from Rutland
They changed my life. I was a fan
Jean Paul Sartre and Ringo
Pop songs for the thinking man
It's 20 years ago and some
Since Rutter taught the band to hum
And Dirk admitted drinking tea
He WAS The Rutles then, to me
He's older now with oyster eyes
I heard his wife is making pies
But though the songs will still remain
We may not see their like again
"THE RUTLES AT THE ABC"
All helped to bring it back to me
They caught the zeitgeist, told the truth
Check out the songs and mourn your youth
