Portrait of Empress Maria Alexandrovna (detail) 1857. Franz Xaver Winterhalter .
“The next song is a really old B-side. We sort of forgot about it, ‘cause It didn’t really make sense when we recorded it, but now that we all got children and they’re growing up, some of them are nearly teenagers, it sort of makes a lot of sense and I remember being on Oxford street, walking past Selfridges, I think it was, and that gave me the idea for the whole thing. But we as a band would like to dedicate this to our beautiful children! ”

Don’t ask me silly questions
I won’t play silly games
I’m just a simple choo choo train
And I’ll always be the same
