Tristan – I Left My Jacket in the Van

Actually, this one started on a night in a pub in Northern England. We were just hanging around and drinking some whiskey, when our guitar player Guy literally asked: “Hey man, I left my Jacket in the van “. We thought that would be a brilliant ‘escape line ‘, especially when you’re out on a date but you really need to get out of there. Without using the most obvious excuses like, ‘my mama just texted’, or ‘I need to go to the bathroom’. With that idea in mind we wrote ‘I left my Jacket in the van ‘ . The most funny thing is that a befriended guitar player told us later that his father used this line to go on a second date with his mother. He didn’t have a jacket and she didn’t have a van.
