about

Tot Taylor’s new single is a very timely “deluxe protest song about ABBA”.

It says that “life is pretty tough at the moment but ... there’s a new ABBA record coming”, as there is in real life -
(Abba’s first single for forty years in due this spring).

Tot Taylor’s A-side is an out and out ‘disco stomper’ - what Eurovision sounds like in 2021

lyrics

THIS NEW ABBA RECORD
I’m out of style
And I seem to have lost my mind
When all that comes and goes
Is leaving me behind ...

Turn on the TV News
There goes the plot
I’m self-destructive
And all the good things I have got

Temperature's rising
Week by week
I listen to the people
Then the people speak...
This new ABBA record
It better be good...

Go for a walk
Take in a protest march or two
Political science is
A-comin' for me and you

Wanna find an UP!
In this system of a down
Go get a sucker
Who can turn this old world around

Temperature's rising
Week by week
I listen to the people
But then the people speak...
This new ABBA record
Better be good

This new ABBA record
It better be good… good … good ...

I sold my ego
There was a psycho-economic collapse
But it’s only temporary
The government said
Perhaps...

Took up Jujitsu
With some 'macrobiotic guru guy'
Don’t like to mention it
But he’s taken me for a ri-i-ide...

Temperature's rising
Week by week
I listen to the people
Then the people speak...
This new ABBA record
Better be good...

This new ABBA record
It better be good...

This new ABBA record
It better be good...

This new ABBA record
Better be good...

This new ABBA record
It better be good...

This new ABBA record
Better be good...

This new ABBA record
It better be good…
