Squeeze: Play

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, September 1991

OF COURSE, WHEN IT COMES to pop lyrics, any old bollocks will do, given the tune and given the feel. "All right now", "She loves you", "Tutti frutti" - no problem. Some even say a carefully crafted couplet can spoil their fun by demanding unwanted mental endeavour. Well, Squeeze are not for them.
