I think 'ferns' refers to the nasty outbreak of plastic ferns that seemed to appear in the dark corners of many pubs around 10 years ago. Great dust traps and homes for spiders, but were old ale houses ever so damp that such greenery occupied their darker corners in days gone by?

Have just checked the notes within the album 'House of Cards' on which it is recorded and it is definietely 'ferns'. I do however think [mobile] 'phones' is an excellent alternative!
