Secret Pastry Plateful of Korma 1/Nov/1999

Korma is the third song in our reportoire. The idea to cover Cornershop came from Derek, when he and Jamie were looking through his old Now... albums. The song is based in an Indian restaurant, so stereotypes abound. There is also a side-excursion to the wonderful Three-in-One restaurant in Clarkston. Jamie likes Indian food, and Derek doesn't mind a Chicken Korma ready-meal from M&S. We are divided with our choice of favourite line, Derek preferring to be the eponymous chive-putter, while Jamie likes the references to Three-in-One.

There's cooking, behind louvred screens.
Behind those louvred screens.
"Derek Murray"
He's the one who puts the cream and chives
In the curry, through the evening, 'till the end of the night.

Plateful of Korma, six pounds forty-five.
Well it's a Chicken Pakora, three pounds forty-five.
Tikka Masala, four pounds forty-five.
Well it's a Veggie Samosa, two pounds forty-five.

And eating, before louvred screens.
Before those louvred screens:
Chicken Bhajis.
Three-in-one: if I'd a car I would drive
Up to Clarkston, for my dinner,
They are really great guys.

They're bringing my marinated chicken
From the Cayman Isles.
We don't care about no government warnings
'bout the raising of cholesterol
And the harm it does me.
