Yes, it is a real song. By one Ivor Cutler. Scots poet, singer, musician , author and generally wonderful human being. This I believe is his masterpiece. A piece of poetry set to wonderful music that has always made me smile and cry at the same time. Smile because of the surreal imagery he magics out of thin air (as he always does). Sad because in no more than a few words he makes me feel the pain of outliving someone you truly love and have lived life with.
