Where are they now? That is the question we need to answer. In a decidely agrarian and English way. And what could be more English than a Peter Noone song with a corny, contrived introduction. Thus, with apologies to music lovers everwhere, I give you,

Hiding Hind the Compost (Leaning on the Lamp Post)
by Peter Loone

{tinkly piano introduction word sung lightly almost recited as poetry}

Gary Coleman is guarding a mall
Downey is on probation
Mariah has had a great fall
It's an unforgiving nation
America may be cruel to has beens
As they drown their sorrows in bars
But that's nothing compared to the English
Who slaughter and burn former stars......

{sung energetically with a thick, possibly fake english accent}

I'm hiding hind the compost in the corner of the sty
Til a certian health inspecter walks by,
Oh Me! Oh My!
Until a certian health inspecter walks by

Oh, he's horrible, he's devious
Mischeivious, he's terrible
And anyone can understand why
I'm hiding hind the compost in the corner of the sty
until a certian health inspecter walks by,

Oh........
I'm hiding hind the compost in the corner of the sty
Til a certian health inspecter walks by,
Oh Me! Oh My!
Until a certian health inspecter walks by

I'm not the kind of pig to be made pork
So you will never see me on your fork
And now that the U.K cannot trade pork
They want to slaughter me
To get rid of the disease.........

Oh, he's killing cows, he's killing sheep
killing swine, oh life is cheap
And anyone can understand why
I'm hiding hind the compost in the corner of the sty
until a certian health inspecter walks by,

I'm hiding hind the compost in the corner of the sty
Til a certian health inspecter walks by,
Oh Me! Oh My!
Until a certian health inspecter walks by
Oh, he he will put and end to me
That's why I'm hiding
can't you see, That's why

I'm hiding hind the compost in the corner of the sty
until a certian health inspecter walks by,
