Creative Brief

When I was 17 I joined a sea angling club and used to go out fishing with a bunch of guys who were all a lot older than me. One of the old boys had served in the Second World War, and his great passion late in his life was digging worms for bait and then going out to try to catch some cod. When he occasionally talked about the war, it was about the antics that he and his army buddies had got up to rather than the fighting, but I found myself thinking about him and these lyrics emerged. 

 

I've included a brief vocal demo that I did on my phone. Just intended to give a vocalist and/or musician an idea of the way that I imagined the words being sung

 

 

Bodies Go Splash


(Chorus)

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

 

(Verse 1)
Now, I'm digging worms on a lonely beach

Trying not to see the blood at my feet

Shovel's in the present

Head's in the past

Normandy Landing

Bodies go splash

 

(Chorus)

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

 

(Verse 2)

Gone to go fishing to catch some cod

I’m an old man now, can almost see God

The water is heaving

Skipper calls out

No luck here, boys

Pull your rods out

 

(Verse 3)

Sitting on the floorboards, barely nineteen

Insignificant cog in the war machine

The water is heaving

Skipper calls out

No luck here, boys

Time to jump out

 

(Chorus)
Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

 

(Bridge)

I got by on good luck

And steel on my head,

While all around me

The fish were well fed.

The ocean roiled like a mackerel run

Bullets chasing the sprat

Rat-a-tat-tat

As they leapt from the mouth of an MG-08 gun

(Chorus)

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

Bodies go splash

Those damn bodies always go splash
