The Lyrics

This is an amended version of the lyric.. the last few lines had been omitted in the earlier versionA few Brit references .. the north circular is a ring road around London (called the 406)Laurence LB is well know TV interior designerMrs T is ex Prime Minister Margaret ThatcherThe Cabinet Minister is Alan Clark who famously had an affair with a Judge's wife and daughter at the same time......about whom is was said that he was a lower class judge ... he was the kind of person who had to "buy his own furniture" .. as opposed to inheriting a load of antiques .. a reference to the English class system.....
GOTTA RESTYLE



I've got my engine runnin
I've sorted out the roof rack
I'm getting quite excited
Must get the seats down in the back

I'm not after anything in particular
I'm gonna play this gig by ear
I'm just cruising down the old North Circular*
Ther'e's a spring sale on at IKEA

I might go for 70s retro
That look really gets me goin
Did you see that feature in the 'Metro'
By the lovely Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen?*

I really must resist those Swedish meatballs
Pickled herring are much better for your health
A little treat before I face that market hall
..and heave those flatpacks down off the shelf

New CD tower for my Destiny's Child
Shaped like a guitar - oooh its totally wild
Oh yes I get my kicks
Off the A406*

Got to restyle
Got to restyle

I remember that Tory minister
The one who fancied Mrs T*
And that circuit judge's wife and daughter
He had them simultaneously

Well his wife thought she was so superior
Well hey baby - she can kiss my ass
I'm proud that I buy and even build my own furniture
Lets hear it for the lower middle class!!!

With my sweet Allen key
I can build my fantasy
I can turn my dreams
Into reality

Got to restyle
Got to restyle

Very good title, parody, and comments before the parody. I liked the Swedish meatball line.
