                                                        . . . . . but when I obtained it on a CD compilation, one of the earliest ones I bought in the mid-1990s, it turned out to be a different version in which the taxi controller had an American accent instead ! There were changes to the lyrics too - I think "Royal Gardens" became "Brook Terrace" . . . . .
