These words fell into my email inbox earlier today.....

Do The Ant

'The Ant'
'The Ant'
You dance . . .
To 'The Ant'
You can't refuse, oh no
Nothing to lose

It's gonna grow upon you like a plant
You're gonna need lots of deodorant

You dance . . .
'The Ant'
You romance . . .
To 'The Ant'
You can't refuse, oh no
There's nothing to lose
Arriba - listen

Ant guitar . . .

Yes, you just take your two forefingers
And wriggle them around like that baby ant
And soon you'll be doing it . . .
Just like me!

So now I'm very busy turning up my amp
And all this make-up makes me look so camp!

You dance . . .
'The Ant'
You romance . . .
To 'The Ant'
You can't refuse, oh no
'Cause there's nothing to lose
Oh no . . .

So you send us a letter with a stamp
We send you the instructions - with our thanks

You can dance . . .
'The Ant'
Romance . . .
To 'The Ant'
You dance
'The Ant'
You romance
To 'The Ant'
You don't refuse . . .

Is it from Duran Duran by any chance?

That's a bit bizarre.

These are from one of the songs that will appear on the demos box set whenever/ if it ever is released. It's a 1977 home demo from the Notting Hill tapes.

So no, not Duran Duran!

I'm mad looking forward to the Ant Demos box set, although this isn't one of the prime reasons! By the way, you can check out my Ant jacket if you like.

Adam must have been on some DAMN good meds for that bit of weirdness. The best line is about needing lots of deodorant.
