Middle of the Road

Middle of the Road

Middle of the Road were responsible for two seventies hits, either of which are still guaranteed to clear a room in seconds. "Chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep" and the unforgettable "Tweedle dee and tweedle dum" plumbed new depths of inanity in pop lyrics, the likes of which have rarely been heard since, with the possible exceptions of "Agadoo" and most of Bananarama's greatest hits.

The band are reputedly still performing, although God only knows why and who for. Nothing could do more to illustrate how awful this band were than to publish the powerful and insightful lyrics to this global smash hit:

CHIRPY CHIRPY CHEEP CHEEP

Where's your momma gone (Where's your momma gone)

Little baby bird (Little baby bird)

Where's your momma gone (Where's your momma gone)

Far far away far far awayayay...

REFRAIN

Last night I heard my momma singing this song

Ooh wee chirpy chirpy cheep cheep Woke up this morning and my momma was gone Ooh wee chirpy chirpy cheep cheep Chirpy chirpy cheep cheep chirp

Where's your momma gone (Where's your momma gone)

Little baby bird (Little baby bird)

Where's your momma gone (Where's your momma gone)

Far far away

Where's your poppa gone (Where's your poppa gone)

Little baby bird (Little baby bird)

Where's your poppa gone (Where's your poppa gone)

And so it continues.

Good eh?
