I Ain’t No Miracle Worker
Nancie Mantz

As performed by The Brogues

This punk classic was penned by a gal who also co-wrote the Electric Prunes’, I Had Too
To Dream Last Night.  Originally given to the Chocolate Watchband, this song made the
eventually reaching #1 in Italy!  Its been said that there has never been a bad version 
song, and I believe it.  For me, the Brogues cover has just the right combination of
snarl, and garage-style riffs.
