Right! Bithead's scan of the Japanese CD issue lyrics contains the term tt.

I play fives on a Sunday
tt on a Tuesday


There's a good chance that I'll be dropping off the board for a while, pretty soon, as my wife will be giving birth to our second child......

Now I don't want to be in that delivery room wondering what the correct lyric is... I want to concetrate on helping her get through the fucking pain barrier...

(I'm making up her labour soundtrack now and a couple of Man-Made songs will feature)

... so you can sympathise.... this needs to be sorted out soon...today if possible.....

I've been listening to it pretty damn closely and I'm pretty godam sure its TAKE TEA on a Tuesday..... @ 1:09 there's a definite syllable after the T and its not 'ee', there is definitely a 'K' in there.

I'm not usually this anal, I just don't like being wrong (although I get plenty of practise! :wink: )

He's got good strong wrists has Stephen P... but he and Gerry aren't playing table tennis on a Tuesday....If they're doing anything together on a Tuesday it's TAKING TEA.....

Just had a listen again, I can hear where your "take tea" argument comes from, but it's definitely "teetee".

I have myself witnessed Gerry and SP just before they were going for a game of ping-pong. The air was electric!

It amuses me to think what some of the international Fanclub might make of the phrase "play fives on a Sunday"

"Play Darts on a Monday"

Darts = Sport of Kings (never mind yer horse racing :wink: )

"Dominoes on a Wednesday" would have been a toughie to fit in.
