  1. Brian Oliver

This song is about a man, Brian Oliver, who we chose randomly from the Dublin phone book and then sent him postcards from all over the world as if we were his best mates. But we never gave our full names nor a return address. The song is a tongue-in-cheek dig at Brian Oliver, complaining that he never writes back.

Lyrics

Brian Oliver, why don't you write?
Is there something about me
That you don't like?
Brian Oliver, hey man, what gives?
Don't forget now, I know where you live.

You, me and Crazy Horse we go way back,
We've had our share of some mighty good craic.
On our travels we always send you mail,
One or two postcards without fail.

Brian Oliver, why don't you write?
Is there something about me
That you don't like?
Brian Oliver, hey man, what gives?
Don't forget now, I know where you live.

You've always been welcome to join us mate,
But you've never come along, no, not to date.
23 Moatfield, Dublin 5
No word from you to say that you're alive.

Brian Oliver, why don't you write?
Is there something about me
That you don't like?
Brian Oliver, hey man, what gives?
Don't forget now, I know where you live.

I could always write to Andrew Pye,
Or Thomas Foley, now they're both great guys.
You've turned real cold and you've put up a wall,
I have to say Brian, I don't know you at all.

Brian Oliver, why don't you write?
Is there something about me
That you don't like?
Brian Oliver, hey man, what gives?
Don't forget now, I know where you live.
