    "They smelt of pubs and Wormwood Scrubs" from Down in the tube station at midnight by the jam
    "Do I know where hell is? hell is in hello"

    Oh it's-a lonesome away from your kindred and all
    By the campfire at night we'll hear the wild dingoes call
    But there's-a nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear
    Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer
    Waes hael!

    Just Jack had a hit a few years ago with a song called 'Stars in Their Eyes' which was a bit of an attack on modern day, X-Factor pop stars and the industry that creates them.

    One of the lines from the song is:

    It's a long way to come from the Dog and Duck karaoke machine - Saturday night's drunken dreams.

    Just thought of another one...Cornerstone by Gordon Brown's favourite band, the Arctic Monkeys.

    I thought a saw you in the BATTLESHIP, but it was only a look alike
    She was nothing but a vision trick under the warning light

    I thought I saw you in the RUSTY HOOK, huddled up in a wicker chair
    I wandered over for a closer look and kissed whoever was sitting there

    I thought I saw you in the PARROT'S BEAK messing with a smoke alarm
    It was too loud for me to hear her speak, and she had a broken arm

    I saw your sister in the CORNERSTONE on the phone to the middle man
    When I saw that she was on her own, I thought she might understand

    I don't think anyone has mentioned Marvin Gaye's classic I Heard it Through The Grapevine yet.
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.

    Mike Batt's The Railway Hotel http://www.metrolyrics.com/railway-h...mike-batt.html

    had wanted much more for the first night with you,
    But the railway hotel was the best I could do.
    I knew the Savoy would have suited you well,
    But the best I could do was the railway hotel.
