Biography

MICKY P KERR – THE STORY SO FAR
Michael Kerr is an Englishman. To those who don’t know him he is a tall, dark and handsome stranger. To those of you do, he is tall, dark and handsome. Born in 1981 he started life as a minor and remained one until 1997. It was then that his love/hate relationship with music began.

Kerr would often lock himself away for days on end. Folk came to marvel at this spectacle. Some would flatten sandwiches and pass them under his door, others would simply sit, wait and listen. However, with no toilet in his room, many lost respect for this young maverick, as he was often found in what could only be politely put as a 'mess'...

Undeterred by well-wishers, Kerr continued to isolate himself from society. His writing became more and more scribbled, to the point where he could no longer read. Fearing he could no longer read, he reappeared from his room and washed himself clean. The crowds slowly dispersed and life returned to normal.

It was then that Kerr successfully applied for a steady job with Norwich Union and light began to appear at the end of a long, dark metaphorical tunnel. No longer a social outcast, Kerr re-kindled his lifelong ambition of becoming a professional songwriter and at the age of 20 he wrote his first song. In his own words it was “sad, melancholy and crap”.

After this dreadful setback, Kerr returned to solitude and the crowds began to reappear. However, after 7 hours locked away he opened the door to see a chord book. After learning some chords Kerr frantically began writing songs the next day…

Lyrics

I Like Drinking

Written By: Micky P Kerr

I like drinking, drinking's really cool.
I like drinking, I even drank at school.
Sometimes it makes me happy, sometimes it makes me sad
Sometimes it makes me piss myself, sometimes it makes me mad.

I like drinking, not drinking's really 'ard.
I like drinking, sometimes I've even been barred (from the local)
Sometimes it makes me happy, sometimes it makes me sad
Sometimes it makes me shit myself and thats when it all goes wrong.

STUDENTS!
PENSIONERS.
Your mum and your dad.
Doctors and lloyers.
Everybody does it
It's even fucking legal
So get yer sen down to the pub with a fresh ten deck of rothmans
Coz smoking's ace when you're pissed

I like drinking, I do it regularly.
I like drinking, I combine it with weed (very often)
At times it makes me happy, at times it makes me sad.
At times it makes me pass out on the floor and scallys tried to rob my trainers

I like drinking, that's what makes me British!
I like drinking, but not as much as the Irish
Are the Irish even British? I'm not really sure.
Some say they are, some say they're not
And that's what caused the war.

Irish!
Scottish!
Welsh people.
Charles Kennedy!
Everybody does it.
Although I must admit.
At times it makes me wake up with a bird
That looks like fucking Sherringham
And I don't find Terry that attractive to be honest with you.

Get fucked have a laugh, spend brass.
Get fucked have a laugh, spend brass.
Get fucked have a laugh, spend brass.
And maybe even pull some tash. OI!
Get fucked have a laugh, spend brass.
Get fucked have a laugh, spend brass.
Get fucked have a laugh, spend some brass.
And maybe even pull some tash. OI!

I like drinking, drinking's really cool.
I like drinking, I even drank at school. (on the premesis)
Sometimes it makes me happy, sometimes it makes me sad
Sometimes it makes me wonder.

Credit Crunch Christmas

Written By: Micky P Kerr

Get your pockets hemmed in, there's no more lending,
the time for excess spending is ending,
pick up a needle and thread start mending the holes in your clothes a recession is pending,
The price collapse, the markets relapse,
turn of your lights and turn of your taps,
turn of your pc's turn of your macs,
stop buying chickens and start catching rats,
My house is freezing, turned of the heating,
the FTSE 100 is constantly grieving,
the futures not bright, the purse strings are tight,
the elderleys plight is the cold snap at night,
they are living in fuel poverty, Gas company profits do bother me
its day light robbery,

Chorus
Its the credit crunch christmas we'll all do our best
Poor old Santa Claus he's not impressed
They took all is reindeer his slays repossessed
A sarcastic thanks to the banks for this mess

Boom follows bust and bust follows boom,
go and tell that to the punters who booked flights with Zoom
so wrap up in blankets and stay in your room,
this is globalisation? I'm off to the moon!
And you cant trust the banks when they dont trust each other,
look at Morgan Stanley look at Lehman Brothers
look at northern Rock its a northern wreck
and every gambling city banker lost his bet,
and every house built is a house built on debt
yet the mortgage repayments are not being met,
and the summers we get are cold windy and wet,
sad wiery faces depressed and upset,
but everybody let us not forget - its supposed to be christmas time?

Chorus
Its the credit crunch christmas we'll all do our best
Poor old Santa Claus he's not impressed
They took all is reindeer his slays repossessed
A sarcastic thanks to the banks for this mess

Alan Greenspan, he's your man,
the man from which the credit crunch began
and now he's retired with a millionaires tan
and a golden handshake from the markets he scammed
they will rise again soon and when lessons are forgotten,
they will crash from their dizzy heights back to the bottom,
so lets think of a time before financial fragility, before the hoarding of liquidity
before negative equity - a time when chomps were 10p....
