When they have a baby, some musicians get their friends together and make silly T-shirts. Others get their friends together, put on silly wigs, and make silly videos. Coldplay, it turns out, falls into the latter category.
To celebrate the birth Friday of Chris Martin's daughter, the band released an homage to daddyness from "that great new band, 'The Nappies'" on their website.
It's only available for a week, so until it turns up on Kazaa, this is your only chance. As the sample lyrics show, The Nappies capture the essence of both pregnancy and modern fatherhood to a T:
There's shit goin' on that you can't disguise;Guess that means the album won't be finished for a few more months, at least.
Your boobs growin' out ten times the size.
Your cup's gone up from an A to D,
That's bad for you, but fun for me...
I'll be there with you, baby,
Through the thin and the thick.
I'm gonna clean up all the poo and the sick...
I ain't no baddy, I'm your baby's daddy.
There's no mention on the site of the mother's identity, so we just have to assume she's some groupie from Manchester. Whoever she is, welcome, Apple Blythe Alison Martin, and congratulations to your par--- waitaminnit, Apple???
