Best sign that nothing's changed in 40+ years: First verse on the album:
One time you were my baby chicken
Now you've grown into a fox
Once upon a time
I was your little rooster
Now I'm just one of your cocks
Let Me Down Slow
It Won't Take Long
Rain Fall Down
Streets Of Love
Back Of My Hand
She Saw Me Coming
This Place Is Empty
Oh No, Not You Again
Laugh, I Nearly Died
Sweet Neo Con
Look What the Cat Dragged In
Driving Too Fast
A Bigger Bang came out September 6.
