A new 'band' featuring the genius of Neil Hannon from The Divine Comedy, check out the lyrics on Jiggery Pokery, pure genius -

'Twas the first test of the Ashes series 1993. Australia had only managed 289
and we....
felt all was going to plan that first innings at Old Trafford, then
Merv Hughes and his handlebar moustache dismissed poor Athers.

I took the
crease to great applause and focused on me dinner. I knew that I had little
cause to fear their young leg spinner.
He loosened up his shoulders and with
no run up at all, he rolled his right arm over and he let go of the ball.....it
was

CHORUS :

Jiggery Pokery trickery jokery how did he open me
up?
Robbery muggery Aussie skullduggery out for a buggering duck.

What a
delivery? I might as well have been holding a childs balloon.
Jiggery pokery
who was this nobody making me look a buffoon.....
Like a blithering old
buffoon.

At first the ball looked straight enough I had it in me
sights,
but such was it's rotation that it swerved out to the right.
I
thought "well that's a leg break", that's easilly defended,

So I stuck my left
leg out and jabbed my bat against it.

Dickie Bird slowly raise his finger.....it was

CHORUS :

Jiggery Pokery trickery jokery how did he open me
up?
Robbery muggery Aussie skullduggery out for a buggering duck.

What a delivery? I might as well have been holding a
contra-bassoon.
Jiggery pokery who was this nobody making me look a
buffoon,
like an accident prone BABOON, BABOON, BABOON, BABOON,

BABOON,
BABOON, BABOON, BABOON, BABOON, BABOON.....

How such a ball could be bowled
I don't know but if you ask me,

f it had been a cheese roll it would never
have got past me.....it was

CHORUS :

Jiggery Pokery trickery jokery how
did he open me up?
Robbery muggery Aussie skullduggery what in the buggery
F**K.

What a delivery? I might as well have been holding a cob of
corn.
Jiggery pokery who was this nobody making me look so forlorn.....
I
HATE SHANE WARNE.....!!
