about

Discover a surreal concoction of Bach, baroque recitative, folk-dance, pun-piano in this triple versed East London drinking song about having adventures with coffee and ice cream. It all starts in Bethnal Green...

Actually the invitation to create this song came from sitting in an ice cream parlour in Brighton where Squid tried an Affogato while Squid's friend, Roni was singing along to a melodramatic Italian pop song.

lyrics

I was sitting in a cafe in Roman Road,
When all of a sudden, an aroma rose!
Tongues licked lips without respite,
Teeth swoooned dreaming of just one bite..
OH! It was a crazy sight!

Chorus:
I won't forget you,
Sweet Affogato-
Down the river of love we sailed
In your glass bateau!
Who could forget you,
Sweet Affogato!
I'll drink up all your mystery
With a bit of gateau.

Verse 2:
A storm broke out,
We were soaked to the bone,
I landed on an island, all alone!
Sent smoke signals, got them all wrong,
The scent of hyenas is really strong..
I hope that help doesn't take too long..
To pass the time I will sing this song...

Chorus...
I won't forget you.. etc.

Verse 3
The rescue plane exploded!
Blew us to the moon!
I shook of all the dust and then
I asked for a spoon..
A chaotic voice said,
"You speak too fast,
Cutlery's a language of the past!"
To my surprise, YOU sprang out of a glass!
Affogato I am home at last!

Chorus...
I won't forget you.. etc
