 Terry is believed to have come from Redditch, and his clips were renowned around the world. His saddle design was less successful however.
Interesting to note also that the baconium is a folk instrument found only in, or just outside of Redditch

 Excellent comedy tune.

Aboard his house boat on the River Thames

Terry keeps his clips on

Smokes a fat cigar

Always with his clips on

Isn't that bizarre...

 Metal pant-leg clips, to keep your pants from getting caught in your bicycle chain. See the front and back cover illustrations for clues.

 If I recall, Stanshall is well known for his narration on the great "Tubular Bells" LP by Mike Oldfield.



What are these "clips" that are being sung about?

 Ah, Vivian Stanshall! What a genius! Terry Keeps His Clips On is an obvious offshoot from Rawlinson End, while King Kripple (it's spelt like that on the LP) harks back to Vivian's Bonzo Dog days. A great single, but not worth buying because both sides are on the utterly brilliant Teddy Boys Don't Knit album.
