Default Re: George and Bob

I think this song was written jointly.It has the hallmarks of a Bob song but it has much humour in the lyrics which suggest George was involved quite heavily.
I think this is the closest they got to recording together.They played live together various times but on record it was usually George recording (brilliantly) Bob's songs.
It's a shame they never did more together.Bob is the superior songwriter but George was a very funny guy (also a good writer of course) and they could have came up with some classics.

Where Were You Last Night is a excellent song, one of the best from Volume 3.
