  • Look twice at the kid with the crimped

    And overheated hair

    They ran a book on his looks

    Odds on was the noble pose and

    The denim hard riff of the Irish Troubadour

    But the boy came from nowhere to

    Steal the hearts of lassies in the lavvies of the club tonight.

    (I know where the summer goes, by Belle and Sebastian)
