Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 44 - Zambezi (The Piranhas)

Flipping heck... I hadn't heard this song in years until hearing it earlier today.  I remember loving it when I was kid.  Utter crap now, but boy it sure gave me flashbacks of my youth. 

A cover of Zambezi by Lou Busch and his Orchestra, this was released back in 1982 by The Piranhas (and featuring Boring Bob Grover - The Man With The Golden Trumpet) where it entered in to the UK Top 40 in September/October when I was but a 5 year old lad with obviously no decent taste in music.



"Well if my bank should phone, tell them I ain't at home,
Just say I packed my plastic bag and went away.
As for the landlord's rent, I spent it on a tent,
So if he's asking questions, you'll know what to say.
 
 

You don't get lyrics like that anymore.
