We doubt it. But somebody needs to write lyrics with 'Hooverville' in.

Almost as good as Motorhead's cover... But Lemmy couldn't carry Heavy Leslie that well!

Hooverville's lit by the moon above,
November's epic was a labour of love.
Dont know when I'll get to go there again,
Hang on a mo, I'll get my pen.


smiley - run

Oh, and now I have listened to this Motörhead version (boy, that name sounds funny), I agree - theirs is remarkable. Also, I can understand the lyrics. smiley - rofl

So was it the actual lyrics or the infamous shout they were upset about? Hate redacted files.

So some kids make lyrics up to a tune and the mighty dogs of law enforcement turn....I know it was the sixties but oh dear.

Must try harder with Hooverville lyrics now, throw a few banana skins in there.....smiley - rofl

smiley - rofl Some people think it was 'mondegreens' - words you think you hear when you don't know the lyrics. In which case, these 'guardians of morals' should be ashamed of themselves.

The lyrics themselves are utterly innocuous, about a rose and such. smiley - rofl

Yep, banana skins.

Love the Heavy Leslie version smiley - ok The fantasy organ sound goes well with the swirly keyboard effects smiley - magic

Thanks for the link to the FOIA file - great to see the detail of the controversy. This topic was covered on QI, and it was fascinating how the lyrics being sung could be heard to match both sets of lyrics that were written on the screen, even though the sets are very different! smiley - laugh

smiley - rofl Too true! That happens a lot - I confess to a mondegreen of my own in tomorrow's Post Editorial. smiley - laugh

This song sounds like they had potatoes in their mouths. And were drunk. This is definitely 'rock and/or roll', as the pastor said on 'The Simpsons'.
