lyrics

In a white house lives a nice man in a white suit
With his good dog he takes long walks in his jack boots

And the people shout
And the people cheer
The white man is the hero of the year

In the white house lives a brown girl in a red dress
In the kitchen full of sharp knives she makes omelettes

And the people peer
And the people pry
Must be something sinful going on inside

Throw more whitewash against the wall
Throw more whitewash against the wall
Cover the scars, the cracks and all
Don’t let the white house fall

In the white house lives a blue boy sad and delicate
Like a servant or a cousin or an inmate

And the people scream
And the people fight
And the white man smiles into the night

Throw more whitewash against the wall
Throw more whitewash against the wall
Cover the scars, the cracks and all
Don’t let the white house fall

We have the right, we want to know
We have the right, we want to know
Turn on the light, put on a show
We want to know, don’t want to know
We want to know, don’t want to know
We want to know, don’t want to know

Throw more whitewash against the wall
Throw more whitewash against the wall
Cover the scars, the cracks and all
Don’t let the white house fall

In the white house there’s a black room with no windows

about

murnie Glasgow, UK

Murnie is a Glasgow/Lanarkshire-based power trio with a love of strong melodies with idiosyncratic lyrics played loud, and with influences as varied as seventies singer-songwriters and classic metal this is hardy surprising. Their unusual piano/drums/guitar-or-bass line-up might appear lacking, but thoughtful arrangements, harmony vocals and sheer enthusiasm result in a big sound from a wee band. ... more
