The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »

He was agin the rich
He was agin the rich
He was agin the poor
He was agin the poor
He was agin the rich
He was agin the poor
He was agin the rich
He was against all trepidation

He was agin the rich
On the loose again
He was agin the rich

There's a new fiend on the loose
On the back of the exhaust clip
Clipped on rich and poor alike
Come to roost again once more

Ol' Nick doesn't go from digs to digs
No more (hit him on the head with a 2 X 4)
Nowadays he has a Georgian glazed porch (hit him on the head with a 2 X 4)

He was agin the rich
He was agin the rich
He was agin the poor
He was agin the poor

There's a new fiend on the loose
On the back of the exhaust clip
Clipped on rich and poor alike
Come to roost again once more

He said hit him on the head
With a 2 X 4
He said hit him on the head
With a 2 X 4

He was agin the rich
He was agin the poor
He was agin the poor
Used table leg
To club son-in-law

New fiend
Again, go home my friend
New fiend in your home again (Jimmy cracks corn)
And then went wrong
Jimmy cracks corn
And then went wrong
Jimmy cracks corn
And then went wrong

He said show me my quarters and glasses
He said show me my quarters and glasses

There's a new fiend on the loose
Jolting in his tradition
It's a fear of the obtuse
He's got patents on the moaning
