Song background and Tom's comments

I wrote this one for my friend Tom Black's birthday, and it saved me buying him a real present. It's also made me some money, so all in all it was the best birthday present ever. If you're wondering, yes we did actually make a film, and yes we plan to make another, and yes it will be AMAZING.

Lyrics for We Made A Film

I want to know why
THings you say about Tories and trains just pass by,
Every word that you say,
Cats with captions and train alterations, each day

There's a new little something of interest,
Shared with me in the best way that you can.
Shining wit, and a passion for irony,
See the absurd in a national tragedy.

One and the same in our own different way.
We'll hit the big time and set a new low in the same day.
And we'll be the men that we wanted to be,
Our own Wright, Frost and Pegg but much better you see,
And I know this is true,
Yes I know this is true,
Cause we made a film.

Working hard through the night,
Fed on laughter and cola, sit bathed in the light
Of your Macintosh screen
Picking out the best bits of the things that we've seen.

There's so many adventures we've had
And not one of them bad for the lives that we lead
Achieving the goals that we set as we go
And I'll never say no, I will never say no to one more.

One and the same in our own different way.
We'll hit the big time and set a new low in the same day.
And like blood and ice cream poured into a bowl
Oh, it doesn't seem right but just somehow we go,
And I know this is true,
Yes I know this is true,
Cause we made a film.
