Peg, Picture Piece - The Square Pags: Some Answer & That Hammer; Unfit!
Words: Ed HookeMusic: Jon HuntDate of Composition/Copyright: 1990Date of Recording:
CommentaryAlmost detached bewilderment as the strain begins to tell on a relationship

For more than 30 years, Comet was a warehouse retailer of electrical goods (including
washing machines) in the UK until it finally went bust in 2012.
In 1990 Radion was a brand new brand of (clothes) washing powder. It was withdrawn
Sing a song of sixpence
a pocket full of vomit.
We've got a new washing machine.
The price was the same as at Comet.
And every day's a brand new day
but somebody forgot to tell God
and with Radion
all odours are gone
and no-one thinks it's odd.
What does it mean?
It makes the clothes clean.
It doesn't matter how dirty they've been
Mary had a little lamb.
Its fleece was as white as soot.
They both could have used our new washing machine
when the lamb decorated her foot.

Into a spin.
The water and suds go round and round.
