This started out as a song about Mexican farmers struggling through a prolonged drought, before mutating into a tale of my pen pal, Chimney Renoir, plus other characters in my life...

Chimney Renoir, my pen pal
Lives in Paris by the Seine
He rides the Metro
From sunrise to moon glow
And he's never been to Spain

Jean-Paul Overall, my neighbour
Likes to play the Butt Touché game
Did so much travel
His mind it did unravel
And he's never been to Spain

Henri Chevalier, my doctor
Does experiments with the brain
Invented the birth chair
He often quotes Voltaire
And he's never been to Spain
Been to Spain

Tundra Cats make the world inexorably better, like a perpetual present made up of one continually changing apocalypse. Or something like that. A very slack band.
