The Housemartins were an indie pop/alternative rock band which formed in 1983 in Kingston upon Hull, England. At its formation the band consisted of Paul Heaton (vocals), Stan Cullimore (guitar), Ted Key (bass) and Chris Lang (drums). The band's membership changed frequently throughout its existence. Ted Key was replaced by Norman Cook (who later became internationally famous as big beat musician Fatboy Slim) and drummer Chris Lang was replaced by Hugh Whitaker, former drummer with The Gargoyles, who in turn was replaced with Dave Hemingway. The band split in 1988.

    It's happy hour again I think
    I might be happy if I wasn't out with them
    And they're happy it's a lovely place to be
    Happy that the fire is real the barman is a she
    Where the haircuts smile and the meaning of style

    Clambering men in big bad boots
    Dug up my den, dug up my roots
    Treated us like plasticine town
    They build us up and knocked us down
    From Meccano to Legoland

    Me and the farmer get on fine
    Through stormy weather and bottles of wine
    If I pull my weight he'll treat me well
    But if I'm late he'll give me hell
    And thought its all hard work no play
    Me And The Farmer  -  92,863 plays
    Sometimes I get so angry with the simple life they lead
    The shepherds smile seems to confirm my fears
    They've never questioned anything, they've never disagreed
    Sometimes I think they must have wool in their ears
    And when you see a can I see a crook
