Original release
First released on 20 February 2007 on Narnack Records iTunes download

01. Fall Sound (Smith/Barbato/Presley/McCord) 3:53  Lyrics

Woken up to Fall sound
And you've just split up
With your long-legged rap chick
O-on Fall sound, th-this is it
Cos your Daddy had a stroke in the toilet [? tub][? on the tour]
to the Fall's annual bank balance [? took the funds out of your bank balance]
Fall sound!
I've seen POW's less hysterical than you
Only water passes my lips
Only beer passes my throat, hit it!
The guitars need more Fall sound
No '80s reprobates
Fall sound
No laptop wankers overground
With Fall sound
It's a business line not a chat line
"Wonderin' what's up?"
It's Fall sound!
I have woken up
It's Fall sound!
It's much too late
It's a scream for help that's desperate
But it's tough luck
It's a Fall sound
You try to ingratiate t-t-t-t-to the Fall sound
But you're much t-t-t-t-too late for Fall sound
No fag-end blowin' your face with Fall sound
No Newsnight for you, baby, with Fall sound
You've just woken up to Fall sound
Fall sound!
F-f-fall sound overground
No Newsnight with Fall sound
F-f-f-Fall sound
