Never ain't nothin' What's he got in that sack I don't think a football Would be dripping like that I bet if you scrape his fingernails You’ll find enough to put that boy in jail Never ain't nothin', always somethin' going on They said she was a spinster And that she never was wed But her sisters were dumbstruck When the will it was read She had a son living in the Ukraine, Two in France and a daughter in Spain Never ain't nothin', always somethin' going on I know you think I'm a stupid old man But I'm always proved right It's not gone, it's in his other hand Ahhh, you only see what's in the light He says he's so complicated That you can't figure him out He's got so many layers He can't do nothing about Says he's like an onion and I know why He never fails to make the women cry Never ain't nothin', always somethin' going on I know you think I'm a mean hearted cynic But i'm never proved wrong You see the box, but i see what's in it Ahhh, just keep your rose-tinted's on Never ain't nothin' Sometimes you gotta dig deep Check the back of your cupboards Trust the doubts in your sleep And while your digging up those bones Be sure to keep one eye on your own Never ain't nothin', always somethin' going on

A droplet risen from the sea Falls from a cloud over Galilee Splashing on the saviours knee Washing away the sins from he Holy water, holy water There's forgiveness in every drop Holy water, holy water May the rain never stop The drop trickled down to his feet And fell on the dust of sun baked street Rose as steam in the heat A turn of the cycle now complete Holy water, holy water There's forgiveness in every drop Holy water, holy water May the rain never stop Now all the other drops up there are transmuted Is their holiness the same or has it been diluted Can their power of redemption be disputed Does it cleanse us or do we make it polluted Holy water, holy water There's forgiveness in every drop Holy water, holy water May the rain never stop Holy water, holy water There's forgiveness in every drop Holy water, holy water May the rain never stop Whatever your religion Choose acceptance not division For the rain doesn't choose Who it falls upon

about

Never Ain’t Nothin’ presents a few tiny tales of hidden truths, slightly paranoid and conspiratorial. Don't be fooled – there is always something going on. The title is inspired by all the grammar geeks who like to point out the double negatives that abound in Blues and other roots music songs. Mark presents a triple negative to confuse or comfort.

This is an old-school two track single:

Never Ain't Nothin' (A Side)
Holy Water (B Side)

NOTE: This is the only place you'll get the B side when you purchase the single! Everywhere else, just the one track. Enjoy!
