I started something… and now I’m not too sure

In our appeal for a soundtrack to the latest ‘crisis’ we got some excellent suggestions. The tightest fit seemed Miss Fitz’s only candidate, the Caribbean children’s song, “There’s a whole in my bucket”, which, as it’s own wikipedia entry notes is an infinite loop motif: ie a song that never ends. But this lyric from the Smith’s gets the implausibility (not necessarily impossibility) of the currently proposed ‘marriage’ between Sinn Fein and the DUP.

I started something
I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
…and now Im not too sure
