about

Once upon a time during a practice, James The Lead Guitarist was called away for a work issue. The other band members expressed their frustrations by writing a song called "Jimmy And The Window Lickers".

Amidst concerns of the not-very-politically-correct aspect of this song title, alternatives were brainstormed. With all the alternative titles flowing, it was decided to write lyrics for all of them.

The album can be interpreted as a metaphor for the lack of originality in modern music. Being more of a piece of art representing a particular social commentary, rather than a music album, it is priced accordingly: the persona who might want to own this album is also the persona who would respect the artistic nature of the project and pay for that.

The work can be largely summarised by the first few seconds of the first track, and the last few seconds of the final track.

Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Lickers
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window lickers broke the key in the door
Jimmy’s window lickers are gonna steal his soul
Jimmy came to town to play with the boys in the band
That idea to the window lickers was one they couldn’t stand

Chorus
La la la la, window lickers
La la la la, window lickers
La la la la, window lickers
La la la la, window lickers

Verse 2:
The window lickers said come back to us
Jimmy didn’t like all the fuss
Jimmy didn’t want to take the call
Jimmy banged his head off the wall
Jimmy had to take off and go
‘Cause window lickers just don’t know
Anything not anything
Window lickers don’t know anything.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Shoppers
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window shoppers made their way to the door
Jimmy’s window shoppers really should buy more
Jimmy came into town to open up the shop
Hoping that the window shoppers would shop until they drop

Chorus:
La la la la, window shoppers
La la la la, window shoppers
La la la la, window shoppers
La la la la, window shoppers

Verse 2:
The window shoppers said don’t make a fuss
Jimmy said “Get in here and buy more stuff”
After Jimmy made that call
Jimmy banged his head off the wall
Jimmy wanted to curl up and die
‘Cause window shoppers just don’t buy
Anything not anything
Window shoppers don’t buy anything.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Stickers
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window stickers came from the radio
Jimmy’s window stickers say “TCR”
Jimmy has stickers up to add colour to his car
People see those window stickers, near and far

Chorus:
La la la la, window stickers
La la la la, window stickers
La la la la, window stickers
La la la la, window stickers

Verse 2:
Window stickers advertise radio
‘Cause Jimmy wants everyone to know
About Jimmy Eff’s Alternative Show
Play music that no one knows
Jimmy drives the stickers around
Everyone turns their radios on
For the latest news from Tamworth town
Window stickers turn radios on.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Fitters
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window fitters replaced his window
Jimmy’s window fitters charged him through the nose
Jimmy called them up when his windows broke
Jimmy’s windows broke from the sound of a dinosaur roar

Chorus:
La la la la, window fitters
La la la la, window fitters
La la la la, window fitters
La la la la, window fitters

Verse 2:
The window fitters said that’s two million quid
You won’t believe what Jimmy did
Jimmy got a great big stick
And found where bodies could be hid
Jimmy told them where to go
‘Cause window fitters just don’t know
Anything not anything
Window fitters don’t know anything.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Displays
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window displays appear in October
Every year Christmas window display start appearing earlier
Jimmy puts a lot of thought into his Christmas displays
Jimmy likes to show Tamworth how much they can save

Chorus:
La la la la, window displays
La la la la, window displays
La la la la, window displays
La la la la, window displays

Verse 2:
Selection boxes are ten per cent off
Is that Christmas tree big enough?
Jimmy works on the Christmas display
Jimmy works on it for the whole day
It catches lots of people’s eyes
People who were just passing by
Window displays sell everything
Window displays sell everything.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Cleaners
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window cleaners clean windows
No shit Sherlock, it’s what a window cleaner does
Jimmy needs window cleaners when his windows get dirty
And he wants to see out on sunny Piccadilly

Chorus:
La la la la, window cleaners
La la la la, window cleaners
La la la la, window cleaners
La la la la, window cleaners

Verse 2:
When window cleaners come round to start
They get straight in and kick things off
Giving those windows a real good wash
With hot soapy water and some lint-free cloths
And when the windows are good and clean
They finish it off with some Windolene
The window cleaners cleaned them right
And now Jimmy can see outside.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Hookers
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window hookers live in Amsterdam
Jimmy’s window hookers will leave if they can
They were brought to Amsterdam with promises of work
Now they find themselves trapped as sex workers

Chorus:
La la la la, window hookers
La la la la, window hookers
La la la la, window hookers
La la la la, window hookers

Verse 2:
Window hookers have nowhere to run
Standing in the window is not fun
They don’t know what they have done
To deserve working for such scum
Jimmy’s never been to Amsterdam
There’s nothing really that he can
Do for them, do for them
Jimmy can’t do anything.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Blinds
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window blinds stop people looking in
Jimmy’s window blinds cost next to nothing
Jimmy got window blinds ‘cause it was Tuesday
Jimmy admires his window blinds every single day

Chorus:
La la la la, window blinds
La la la la, window blinds
La la la la, window blinds
La la la la, window blinds

Verse 2:
Window blinds come down at night
To stop noisy neighbours looking right
In your living room when you turn on the light
They can see if you’re watching The X Files
Jimmy’s glad he bought his window blinds
‘Cause nosey neighbours just don’t mind
Watching in, watching
Nosey neighbours like watching in.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Dressers
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window dressers dress windows
No shit Sherlock, that’s what a window dresser does
Jimmy can’t believe that it’s a real job
Jimmy’s thinks window dressers can fuck right off

Chorus:
La la la la, window dressers
La la la la, window dressers
La la la la, window dressers
La la la la, window dressers

Verse 2:
Jimmy doesn’t care for fancy windows
As long as everything on sale goes
And there’s a profit to show from his store
Jimmy doesn’t worry about windows
Jimmy’s got better things to do
Than get covered with glitter and glue
Window dressers and fuck right off
They can fuck right off.
Track Name: Jimmy And The Window Zippers
Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window zippers can mean two different things
Neither of which have ever been used by Jimmy
One is a tool for opening painted over windows
The other is a soft top clear cover for a Jeep Wrangler

Chorus:
La la la la, window zippers
La la la la, window zippers
La la la la, window zippers
La la la la, window zippers

Verse 2:
Window zippers mean nothing to him
It’s just the internet that tells of these things
He doesn’t own a Jeep or painted over windows
Jimmy’s windows aren’t painted closed
Now this album is coming to an end
You never need to hear this tune ever again
From window lickers to window zippers
Let’s end the album on window zippers.
