    Here's some quick and dirty chili peppers for you.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    This is definitely not my best attempt at an original song, but I tried writing one using jargon that is common in my job. The second video is me explaining the first one.





    He said, The first one's on the island
    But it's usually under mulch
    Might have to use your shovel
    But you shouldn't dig too much
    Most of it is foot on doubles
    Until you get to the last ten
    It'll bring you back to your truck
    Then you can motor out the end

    Loop out the cul-de-sacs
    All the way to the end and back
    If you can criss-cross on the straightaways
    Maybe you'll have an easy day
    Check the map or you might deadwalk back
    Going back over your own tracks
    And don't forget to loop out the cul-de-sacs

    You can try to read the leaks
    If the water's clear and not too deep
    You can try to bail them out by hand
    With a plastic bottle from a garbage can
    Don't stick your hand down in the mire
    Just code 'em damaged, and take a picture
    If I was you, I'd just wait, or
    You can always tube 'em later

    If you have to go inside the fence
    Make sure you take a good long look
    Watch for signs of dogs and take no risk
    And whatever you do, never drop your hook

    Billy Connolly famously worn "banana boots" and one has to wonder if his inspiration
    came from A Scottish children's skipping rope song called Skinny Malinky.

    Here is a Lancashire folk song about the greatest pleasure known to man. Fish and chips on a Friday.



    If I get my way this week is gonna take me to some weird places
    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Here's one chock full of Cockney from Squeeze

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"
