Can’t help about the shape I’m in
Can’t sing, I ain’t pretty and my legs are thin
Don’t ask me what I think of you
Might not give the answer that you want me to

Now when I talk to God I knew he’d understands
He said stick by me and I’ll be your guidin’ hand
Don’t ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well, well, well, well

Yeah, ooh

Well, we haven’t played anything from Tusk yet
So, we gonna some out tonight for you
And, ah, the first one of which is actually the first track on side one
And it’s called Over and Over

Songwriters: Peter Alan Green

  1. Oh Well was performed in Manchester’s Dickenson Road Studio and recorded via land line on Video Tape in London.
    Half way through playing Peter Green just stopped saying “Why are we playing this crap?” and it was some time before he could be persuaded to start again.
    This explains the odd centre section but credit is due to the VT Editor who managed to salvage a broadcastable set. Remember this was in the days where the editing was done with a razor blade on 2 inch wide tape.
    I was one of the camera operators.
