No, sorry Kate, James and anyone else who assumed so, this isnt about my holiday, though the title at least is rather apt. The sentiments are about something else entirely though.
Many assume these were the lyrics originally written, not true. Lets face it, Billy Bragg would have looked a bit silly if they had been! What is true is that he actually tweaked them for Kirsty though, and what a great job he did of it. These lyrics pretty much sum up the teen/early twenties years of many girls, the whole boyfriends thing, the pill thing (if they are wise), and of course, the sex. And then the jilting by him lol! And yes, I suspect we all went through it, some of us with both sexes lol!
No, I dont want to change the world, and I suspect this England isnt as bad as I portray it sometimes, though some matters do annoy me, but hey, I have to live with it. A new England, not sure if that would be good or bad, I suspect it depends who runs it, lol! New England was very nice, though whether I’d say that living through, and trying to get to work in their winter might be another matter? See, holiday did get mentioned after all! 😛
Thankfully I’m now to old to be a mother, even if I did have such desires, but thats for the best, I would have made a lousy mum! Though who knows how I would have reacted, had it happened?
As some readers at least will know, Kirsty is no longer with us, taken in a tragic accident in Mexico a few years back now, but will never stop me being a great fan of her music, thats for sure. These arent her lyrics, as I said, but they are her style of lyroics all the same, as I will prove in the near future, already got another words/video set to one of her songs all worked out.
For now, enjoy a talent taken from us at far too young an age
