The War on Sugarlumps

“Here Come the Nice” was Marriott/Lane’s ode to their dealer.  The song clearly says, “he’s always there / if I need some speed,” but this one got past the Beeb censors, peaking at a respectable #12.  But sugarlumps?  Forget it. Maybe they were so busy looking for metaphorical drug references that they missed explicit ones.
