Aren't the lyrics (as always) just beautiful??!!! And just for the record.... he's not better looking than Guy! Very Happy
At the moment this songs on repeat! I also love the music very much on it. The whole clapping thing works a lot for me.

Yeah, love the lyrics to this, isn't it about when he and a girlfriend (poss Edith) met an ex of hers in the street, and all about the discomfort that surrounds that situation?

"He'd look ideal 'neath the wheels of a car" is one of my favourite Guy lyrics. I like the Spanish language version too!

I've had the LOTFW album for a few days now - a little something from the wife before she went away was this and Cast Of Thousands - and this track was an instant with me. I love the dynamics of it. Typically brilliant lyrics, too. I guess there are shades of Morrissey to some of Guy's songs.

My daughter has just decided she likes the Spanish version of Mexican Standoff; she heard it come up on my shuffle and doesn't have an effin' clue what they're on about, but she liked the sound of it. She now has it on her iPod Touch and plays it a lot! Strange, but true! Laughing
