This song is often referred by Neil as his first ever song [1]. However it doesn’t actually exist elsewhere than in his head as it is a song he used to sing being 10. He accompanied himself with a tennis racket as a guitar [2]. Therefore no recording exist, but since Neil has sung this song during interviews from time to times [3].
