Album The People Who Grinned Themselves to Death. Clambering men in big bad boots Dug up my den, dug up my roots Treated us like plasticine town They built us up and knocked us down.
The Housemartins were an English indie rock band formed in Hull who were active in the 1980s, and charted three top ten albums and six top twenty singles in the UK. Many of their lyrics were a mixture of socialist politics and Christianity, reflecting the beliefs of the band (the back cover of London 0 Hull 4 contained the message, "Take Jesus – Take Marx – Take Hope"). The group's a cappella cover version of "Caravan of Love" (originally by Isley-Jasper-Isley) was a UK Number 1 single in December 1986.

Clambering men in big bad boots Dug up my den, dug up my roots Treated us like plasticine town They built us up and knocked us down. From Meccano to Legoland Here they come with a brick in their hand Men with heads filled up with sand It's build. Whistling men in yellow vans They came and drew us diagrams Showed us how it all worked.
