A classic.Also @suspended are you familiar with Cool For Cats? It shares the same slice of mundane daily life kitchen sink colloquialisms as Up The Junction and came to my attention as a child when it was used on an advert for... what was it? I think it was milk or milkshakes or something that cats probably drink.
I think that's probably fairly on the money. It's the only explanation for a song made entirely of lines as awkward as the infamousMy wife's theory with "Up the Junction" is that the rhymes are deliberately clunky to convey the idea that it's the character in the song - who's not especially literate or well educated - actually attempting to write verse. It's meant to be artless.
Why's everyone talking about a television host in this thread eh
