Subbuteo Balls and Rock Stars

A hidden song...

The band Pretty Cartel combine the "grittiness of The Verve with the strutting accessibility of Oasis."

In 2019, they released an album called 'Subbuteo Balls and Rock Stars', with the title track is hidden in the album, starting a few minutes after the 'last song' has finished.

The video on top is an acoustic version,

The 'non-acoustic' version on the can be found in this video uploaded to Facebook.

Alternatively, you can watch the bottom video and listen to the last track on the album (Singer with no name), then listen to two minutes silence, and then listen to the 'hidden track'.

If time is of the essence, then you can go to 06:33 and just listen to Subbuteo Balls and Rock Stars.

The lyrics for the song, don't seem to be anywhere to be found, and as the band are from Northern Ireland, the acoustic and non-acoustic versions needed to be listened to several times to try to work out what these gentlemen were signing about.

The lyrics cited below are a 'best guess'!

Lyrics

Subbuteo balls and rock stars are on the way
The apple carts will fall yesterday (non-acoustic version)
Something something something something
Subbuteo’s a-kickin’ something, sooomathing some-some a-thing a-thing

(But) sometimes we’re up (and) sometimes we’re down
Can’t make no sense of this crazy town
(But) sometimes we’re up (and) sometimes we’re down
Can’t make no sense of this crazy town

This crazy town (non-acoustic version)

On my way to find a club yeah
We’ve got our skinnies on our head so high
Get to the club we’ve (he) just walk in yeah
You (He) kissed the DJ’s girl, you’re gonna get done in, get get done in

(But) sometimes you’re (we’re) up (and) sometimes we’re down
Can’t make no sense of this crazy town
(But) sometimes we’re up (and) sometimes we’re down
Can’t make no sense of this crazy town

This crazy town

Sun is coming up, time to go back
A few more somethings is all that we something
Bump into something right along the way
Forty half-winks, it’s a brand new day

(But) sometimes we’re up (and) sometimes we’re down
Can’t make no sense of this crazy town
(But) sometimes we’re up (and) sometimes we’re down
Can’t make no sense of this crazy town

This crazy town

Back in the room there’s something something
You know we’re gonna smoke it through a tin
A few big tunes will see us right
As we start to sing, turn out the light
