The Tracks:

To promote The Wurzels forthcoming album, 'A Load More Bullocks', the anthemic 'Ruby' (made famous by The Kaiser Chiefs) was chosen as their first release of 2010. Like their previous single, 'Ode to Adge', it was only made generally available via internet download. As usual the song was produced by part-time Wurzel Louie Nicastro. A music video was commissioned to accompany the release and can be viewed here.

The official press release was made on the 7th June 2010 and read:-

The New Single  'Ruby'   Available from Monday (June 21st) ONLY as a digital release, The Wurzels version of Ruby is sure to be a summer anthem!    Download from key stores, such as iTunes, Amazon, Play.com, HMV, 7Digital and Tesco Digital.      

Collectors' Extras:

A promotional copy of this single was made although the disc was a basic black on silver as shown with catalogue number CIA026.

The disc came in a plastic wallet with a simple paper insert - the front being the image (top of page) and the back as shown below. Further promotional information was given on sticky labels on the plastic sleeve as shown below right.

'Ruby' - Song Lyrics              

  • Go!
  • Doobie do, doobie do
    Doobie do, doobie do
  • Let it never be said, that romance is dead
    Cos there's so little else occupying my head
    There is nothing I need, 'cept the function to breathe
    But I'm not really fussed, doesn't matter to me
  • (Chorus)
    Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr)
    Do ya do ya do ya do ya (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr)
    Know what you're doing doing to me (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr)
    Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr)
  • Due to lack of interest, tomorrow is cancelled
    Let the clocks be reset, and the pendulums held
    Cos there's nothing at all, 'cept this space in between
    Finding out what you’m called, and repeating your name
  • (Repeat chorus)
  • Could it be could it be that you're only joking with me
    And you don't really see you and me
    Could it be could it be that you're joking with me all the time
    And you don't really see you and me at all
  • (Repeat chorus)
  • Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr) (doobie do, doobie do)
    Do ya do ya do ya do ya (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr)
    Know what you're doing doing to me (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr) (doobie do, doobie do)
    Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby (ooh arr ooh arr ooh arr)
