A version of this jingle was on the original 'B' side for "Good To Be Gay" but the master tape has been lost. This re-recording was done for fun in an odd moment with TRB at Rockfield studios, summer 1978.


If you're down in London town
And happen to be gay
There's a great information service
Open every day
They'll tell you who and where and when
And how and why and more
On 8-3 double 7-3-2-4
8-3 double 7-3-2-4
