She's Got A New Spell
Billy Bragg Lyrics

What is that sound?
Where is it coming from?
All around
What are you running from?

Something you don't understand
Something you cannot command
That's how I know
She's got a new spell
Yes, that's how I know
That she's got a new spell
What's going down?
Who's moved this room from round me?

Where has it gone?
I fear this night will drown me
So I lie awake all night
'Cause I can't sleep with something I can't fight

The laws of gravity are very, very strict
And you're just bending them for your own benefit
One minute she says
She's gone to get the cat in

The next thing I know
She's mumbling in Latin
She cut the stars out of the sky
And baked them in a pie

She stole the scene and scenery
The script and the machinery

I was a sixteen year high school student in NZ when I first heard Billy Bragg being played by an enormous first fifteen tight forward called Hugh Lintott in the art studio.
Billy was like no one I had ever heard up until that stage. The clarity, humour and beauty of his lyrics just blew me away. Hard to pick between this and The Saturday Boy for favourite tune but this just edges it. A brilliant heart warming tune.

Hang on what about Shirley (The new Brunette) or New England, The milkman of human kindness, the man behind the mask

I remember Hugh Lintott , Hugh Scully and Hugh Jarse. All huge influences on me.

BB was my first concert back in the 80s. Takes me back, makes my heart hurt a little bit.


She stole the scene, and the scenery, the script,and the machinery.Sounds like one of my ex's.Best writer of heart-break love-songs of the last 25 yrs.Too bad so few have heard of him.His stuff is timeless.

We didn't need youtube back then. this stuff was on the radio and on the telly. He sold a lot of records back in the day. strange hearing stuff like Between the Wars on the the top 40 countdown, and being able to buy it in woolworths and whsmith. I sound old. I know : )
