Get That Bad Luck Away From Me
Get it Away From Me
Get That Bad Luck Away From Me
Get it Away From Me

You Know I've Had My Share
And I Kept it to Myself
You Must Be Aware
No One Wants to Hear it

Never Doubt I'll Shout
I've Been Down... and Out

No One Needs Your Bad Luck
Get it Away From Here
Nobody Needs Your Bad Luck
Take it Away Disappear
Nobody Needs Your Bad Luck
Get it Away From Me
Nobody Wants Your Bad Luck
Go Away and Make it Disappear

We Don't Want You
We Don't Need You
Get a Job, Lazy Slob
Drug Taker, Booze Beggar
Dirty Stinky, Who to Rob

Not Friendly, Not Easy, No Money
On Your Own
Cold Winters, Street Shivers, Wind Blasters
On Your Own

'Round and 'Round the Streets
Looking Down and Never Up
Lucky People There,
Laughs and Never Meets

Never Doubt I'll Shout
I've Been Down... and Out

No One Needs Your Bad Luck
Get it Away From Here
Nobody Needs Your Bad Luck
Take it Away Disappear
Nobody Wants Your Bad Luck
Get it Away From Me
Nobody Wants Your Bad Luck
Go Away and Make it Disappear

No Bad Luck with Christopher Chaplin

Well… this one has been a long, long time coming. It started many months ago when someone visited the company I work for. He was moaning on and on about troubles he was having with business and his life.

Once he'd gone I said jokingly to colleagues that 'I wish he would 'f*** of and take his bad luck with him - before we all catch it'. Everyone seemed to find that funny.

It troubled me though, and I felt very guilty about saying it. That was the basis of my thinking about 'No one wants your bad luck' etc.

I then spent quite a few weeks or maybe months trying other things - but I kept coming back to this theme. Although, after a while it seemed to be more about the plight of the homeless. Once I had written the basic song, I asked my good friend
Julian Sims if he would help me with some backing vocals. The sunday he came round he had played football in the morning and had injured his leg very badly. He actually arrived on crutches and effortlessly sang three part harmonies in no time at all. He is a great talent and is always surprising me with his seemingly endless abilities.

I also asked my niece Aisuluu if she would help with a vocal part, I am very grateful to her for the short but vital part she plays in the song.

I hoped against hope that my other good friend
Christopher Chaplin would again turn a little song of mine into something. He was very busy with his own projects but agreed. I waited with great anticipation for a few weeks and then there it was, another stunning Christopher Chaplin orchestration.

I have also had a go at my first video - which is above.
