Ricky Gervais


Fancy learning to play guitar this summer? 

David Brent Songbook is the perfect place to start. Full of lyrics and sheet music from the film Life on the Road by David Brent, this book is sure to help you on your way to guitar greatness, accompanied by hilarious introductions written by David Brent himself.

What Ricky Gervais says about the book:

"This is a dream come true for Brent"

"At last, the chance to pontificate about his art and divulge the stories behind such classics as Equality Street, Native American, Lady Gypsy, Slough and Please Don’t Make Fun of the Disableds.”
“Even though this is clearly a humour book, the sheet music is real and the songs are insanely catchy and easy to play. Go and get the guitar.”

Here are the lyrics to Life on the Road to get you in the mood:

Life on the Road

Half a tank should get me to Millbank
I fill her up and head down to Sidcup
It’s just a meeting
It’s only fleeting
It’s just a pitch
And then I’m up to Ipswich

Life on the road
Don’t need a heavy load
Foot down to the floor
70 miles an hour
But no more

Wheeler dealing, no feeling
Strictly business, I’m killin’ it
in Widnes
Then to Gloucester
I get a Costa.
Hard shoulder?
Coffee holder

Life on the road
Don’t need a heavy load
Foot down to the floor
70 miles an hour
But never more

(Repeat Chorus 1)

(Repeat Chorus 2)

We were lucky enough to have David Brent come and sign some books for us this week.
