We're Not Deep: The Housemartins

Time for some more Housemartins, simply because I like them more and more as time goes by.

We're Not Deep is a track from their debut LP London 0 Hull 4, which was released (checks notes incredulously) 35 years ago.

Paul Heaton's lyrical genius, as ever, is on display:

Now it may be a sad reflection
On the way young people feel,
But early Monday morning
Is losing its appeal.

I open my curtains at 7am
Just so you think I'm up with the rest of the men.
