Most well known clever bastards needed the talent and also the salesmanship to get noticed, except Albert. All Albert needed was set of trig tables and imagination. Wot a brane!

Great lyrics 🙂

I don’t even think I can say the phrase ‘there aint half been some clever bastards’ without attempting a Drury-esque inflection 🙂
August 2, 2012 at 10:19 am
