I went down to Embankment on an August afternoon,
Twas there I spied sweet Brenda Finn all shining like the moon,
Victoria Embankment Park is pretty in the sun,
But prettier than Brenda Finn you won't find anyone
Oh Brenda Finn oh Brenda Finn, the apple of my eye
If I can't have sweet Brenda Finn I tell you I may die
I told her that my friends and I were going for a few
She said, “But I am working now, I cannot drink with you,
(But) I order you to come to Covent Garden later on,
If you can find me there perhaps we'll have a drink anon.”
Oh Brenda Finn oh Brenda Finn, and what will happen then?
If I can't find sweet Brenda Finn I won't see her again.
I went to Covent Garden, I was walking round and round
But – oh – my pretty Brenda Finn was nowhere to be found.
And just as I was leaving, I was going home to cry,
Someone came up behind me and I heard a voice say, “Hi.”
“Oh Brenda Finn, oh Brenda Finn oh there you are at last,
Come on and have a drink with me, my heart is beating fast.”
“I will not have a drink with you, I have an aching head.
But gladly will I sit with you and rest a while,” she said.
And so it was that Brenda Finn and I became good friends.
And later we were lovers too, but that's not where it ends.
Oh Brenda Finn, oh Brenda Finn, oh will you marry me.
If I can't marry Brenda Finn I don't know what will be.
Incredibly lush harmonies, fine songwriting, no cheese - Citizen Helene is great live, but also in the studio. If you can't catch her doing the former, catch her doing the latter. Fit and the Conniptions
