The Temporary Traffic Light Blues
To be sung to the backing of a bottleneck slide guitar whilst sitting on a porch in the deep south (or perhaps North Birmingham) and drinking liquor.

Ooooooh man,
Ah've got the temporary traffic light blues,
The water board are digging up my street,
Have you heard the news?

A major fault in the pipes,
Has been detected,
Therefore this interim traffic solution,
Has been erected

Right outside my window,
They're flashing red, amber, green,
It's giving me a headache,
That infernal machine

Flashing, flashing, flashing
Throughout the night and day,
Ooooh please Seven Trent Water,
Ooooh won't you take them away....
