13. UNITED KINGDOM 4: londonvision -“The Cuckold Song (Should’ve Done The Same As You)”

“The Cuckold Song (Should’ve Done The Same As You)”

Performed by: londonvision
Music by: Andy Brook
Lyrics by: Andy Brook

The Cuckold song is another true tale of misadventure from Andy’s younger life. It is a story of betrayal and revenge. Told in a tongue-in-cheek way, the word ‘cuckold’ in the title of the song is an archaic, light-hearted term for someone who’s partner is cheating on them.

“This year I am joined by Alex Bonanno on guitars, Charles Berthout on bass and Don Wielogroch on drums. 2020 is the tenth anniversary of londonvision’s win with ‘Running on Empty’. Good luck to all the participants this year, and may the best song win,” says Andy.

In 2010 Andy won, and in 2013 and 2018 he came in second place. Welcome back to the competition and best of luck!

Lyrics:

You promised me, you swore that it wasn’t true
But the rumours that I heard had me asking around
And you were lying through and through

But I was fully prepared to go with the flow
Until you broke the golden rule
I didn’t ask, and you didn’t tell
But then you took me for a fool

This wasn’t love we were feeling
With no possibility of healing
Your deception and your cold-blooded lies
Only hastened our goodbyes
This wasn’t love we were feeling
Just an awful lot of self-deceiving
I was hanging around ‘cos it was easier to
Should’ve done the same as you

(Ahhh – ahhhh, should’ve done the same as you)

You told your friends; you even told your family
Well it doesn’t say a lot about the state of our lives
When the last to know was me

But I was fully prepared to go with the flow
Until you broke the golden rule
I didn’t ask, and you didn’t tell
But then you took me for a fool

This wasn’t love we were feeling
With no possibility of healing
Your deception and your cold-blooded lies
Only hastened our goodbyes
This wasn’t love we were feeling
Just an awful lot of self-deceiving
I was hanging around ‘cos it was easier to
Should’ve done the same as you

Ooooh, do you see that smoking gun
Revenge is gonna be such fun….
Can you guess what I have gone and done

This wasn’t love we were feeling
With no possibility of healing
Your deception and your cold-blooded lies
Only hastened our goodbyes
This wasn’t love we were feeling
Just an awful lot of self-deceiving
I was hanging around ‘cos it was easier to
Should’ve done the same as you

(Ahhh – ahhhh, should’ve done the same as you
Ahhh – ahhhh, should’ve done the same as you)
