about

The Victor Pope Band Edinburgh, UK

The Victor Pope Band were formed at the arse end of 2012 from the remains of Ginger and the Tramp, Sabai and The Woods. So in a way they're a kind of supergroup. They have been described as quality quirky pop punk, post-punk and sounding a little bit like Jonathan Richman. But I prefer to describe them as Nerd Rock. The real question remains, however, who is Victor Pope...? ... more

Track Name: Space Monkey
Verse 1

Well I've seen magic and I've seen mystics,
But all that shit leaves me kind of pessimistic,
`Cus if that's what I've gotta do to get up there,
I don't have a hope and that don't seem fair,
`Cus I've tried all my life to be a good person,
I may be on the lazy side but there could be worse things,
I'm no rainbow warrior or forest elf,
But I've always tried my hardest just to be myself.

Chorus

I ain't going to space,
I ain't going to space,
All you other clever mother fuckers are but,
I ain't going to space.

Verse 2

A long time ago in the garden of Eden,
Eve had a bite of fruit and that's how we got evil,
But if I'm going to hell for having a snack,
I feel short changed I want my money back.

Chorus

Verse 3

I'll be last in line for the resurrection,
If God is my witness get me some witness protection,
I've done a lot of bad things I'd rather not mention,
I'm the friggin' anti-Christ - get me Van Helsing.

Chorus, Chorus, Instrumental, Chorus.
