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 »

I'm in love with the Carrier Bag Man
I love the Carrier Bag Man
I love the Carrier Bag Man
Carrier bags strewn all around the room
Ah, the Carrier Bag Man, I am him
'Cause I am the Carrier Bag Man, I am the carrier bag man

I've no time to sit comfortable down
But I still need armchairs round my home
To put carrier bags on

I am the Carrier Bag Man
Carry a bag man!

I don't make waves, I hide bags in graves
No cash is earned straight nowadays anyways
Please all you onlookers understand
So make gangway for Carrier Bag Man

I am Carrier Bag Man
When in town I keep head down
Kneel on the croft when the Mariah comes round
Fat-assed workmen, I scurry around
There's few good places to hide bags behind

èCause I am Carrier Bag Man.
Carry a bag man!
