Ray Davies's
Working Man's Café cover

All Lines

A bachelor you will stay,
A battle cry until we've won
A better place for me and you
A big black cloud hanging over me
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world
A brave new world has suddenly appeared.
A chord progression, (2) (3)
A cigarette stubbed out on the fireplace
A coffee cup with her lipstick stains
A community built on trust, not money
a connoisseur of the old twelve bar
A day at a time
a deep freeze, quadrasonic and a washing machine.
A different performance with every age.
A double scotch and we forget where we're at.
A drunken lag in some Salvation Army Mission.
A dustbin full of promises and half-hearted plans.
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes, (2)
A few killer lines in that suicide note
A few killer lines to get my goat (2)
A friend of mine just had a real bad time.
A gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere (2)
A gang of kids came over and mugged me
A labour of love, labour of love.
A life's gotta have direction
A little bad news helps circulation
A little bit of faith can be such a beautiful thing?
A little bit of real emotion (2)
A little bit of true emotion (2)
A little bit of understanding peace in our time
A little country folk,
A little country home,
A little man looks up at the sky.
A lonely spinster prays
A long, long time ago,
A love like mine (2)
A man has one, a cat has nine
A man lives at the corner of the street,
A man of power or a man of religion
A mechanical nightmare,
A military coup has been long overdue.
A million sessions ago it seems.
A minor childhood incident
A misty shadow spread its wings
A mortgage, overdraft, a bank loan.
A nation's voice will sing as one,
A new horizon clear to view
A new house, a new car, a new job, a new nose.
A nice bit of old,
A nine stone weakling with knobbly knees
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest,
A philharmonic orchestra,
A photograph with a smiling face
A picture of you in your birthday suit,
A poison pen can wreck your day
A restless spirit who can't reach his goal
A rumor then a vicious phrase
A saint or a sinner, I want to be a winner
A saint played a gig but he got crap reviews
A second changes day to night
A second hand copy of Psycho
A second later he is dead
A session man (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
A shrewd politician, a maker of decisions
A simple holiday romance. (2)
A slave to demon alcohol.
A step at a time together
A suburban vigilante
A Sunday joint of bread and honey.
A superior being
A sweeper of sidewalks, I've got to do it my way
A top musician. (2) (3)
A voice keeps crying
A voice that has no face, (2)
A wandering nomad with no home to stay
A well known groover, rock 'n' roll user,
A year or more, or is it less? I can't be sure
A-scooby-dooby-doo. (2)
About it, (2)
About it. (2)
About world revolution and social unrest
Accept your life and what it brings.
According to her Ma, according to her Pa,
According to his wife, he's formed a secret army
Achieve too much in my time
Achtung parlez vous Englese, bon appetit
Across the coral sands I saw a hula hula dancer, looking pretty.
Act nice, act nice and gentle to me. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
Act nice, act nice, baby.
Act normal there's nothing wrong
Acute schizophrenia blues,
Acute schizophrenia blues.
Add it up, (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13)
Add it up, oh (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10)
Add it up, you might have got some money
Add up to nothin' you got nothin' to say
Afraid of yourself so you run away and hide
After all that we've been through. (2)
After all this time I'm surprised
After all this time you never thought you'd still be out on the road?
After breakfast (2)
After getting right out of it on a Saturday night
After me she went with a biker from Stoke,
After the deals are done
After the fall (after the fall is over) (2)
After the fall is over (2) (3) (4)
Against filth and depravity, (2)
Against filth and depravity.
Aggravation all around.
Aggravation in my mind my body and my soul
Aggravations everywhere, get outta my way get out of my hair.
Ah ah ah ah
Ah but if they would only see
Ah, bless you tax man, bless you all
Ah, but it was really good to talk to you
Ah, but the world will never change
Ah, but when the mist clears, the sun will shine again (2) (3)
Ah, come to daddy, (2)
Ah, come to daddy, come on.
Ah, did ya ever think it wouldn't last forever?
Ah, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci (2)
Ah, hey, hey, hey, ah, hey, hey
Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
Ah, the smart young ladies of the land
Ah, Tom's old ma is a dying lass
Ah, Tom is young and Tom is bold
Ah, you thought you knew me pretty well,
Ain't got no ambition, I'm just disillusioned
Ain't got no security,
Ain't it a pity,
Ain't it a pity.
Ain't it a thrill to be so free, yeh. (2)
Ain't no evil spirits round here
Ain't no spooks waiting to appear
Ain't no wonder you can't sleep at night
All across the nation
All alone, sitting on my sofa, (2) (3)
All around me is such unreality,
All classes unified to live in harmony
All complaining their lives are unfair
All day and all of the night (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8)
All day and all of the night time
All day long she plays the same old songs,
All except Maria's daughters,
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.
All for peace and quiet's sake (2) (3)
All he wants is a yes or a no
All her boyfriends used to come and call.
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.
All I ever get (no decision) is a definite maybe (no decision).
All I ever get is a definite maybe.
All I hear is noise.
All I lived for was to get out of the factory (2) (3)
All I lived for was to get out of the factory.
All I lived for, All I lived for (2) (3) (4)
All I need's a single ticket (2)
All I see is imitation
All I see, all I hear (2) (3)
All I see, all I hear. (2)
All I want is a yes or a no,
All life we work but work is a bore,
All life we work but work is bore,
All my friends are all middle class and grey,
All my friends came to wish me goodbye.
All my friends would ask me what it's all leading to. (2)
All my life I've been a workin' man
All my life I've had to move
All my life I've put in a working day
All nations will unite as one
All night he waits in the garden shed
All of my friends were there to stand and stare,
All of my friends were there to stand and stare.
All of my friends were there,
All of my friends were there.
All of my life is monotony
All of my next door neighbours (2)
All of the places she might be.
All of the song and laughter
All of the time (2)
All of this confusion is ruining my day. (2)
All other guys just stand and stare,
All over her American face
All over, all over
All right put your finger on your nose,
All round me is such unreality,
All she wrote is a goodbye letter
All she wrote on that goodbye letter
All she wrote was a goodbye letter
All that I ask is some peace in my time
All that I see, seems so unreal to me,
All that went before (2)
All the babies crying out from the womb
All the children are scattered
All the dirty dishes
All the families and homes that I've left behind
All the hidden potential deep in your mind
All the kids are working out, they're on their way to fame.
All the lies of the people running round,
All the lies we were told,
All the little people need education.
All the movie makers of the world would be,
All the noise. (Noise)
All the people,
All the places he had been.
All the places that remind me of you.
All the places that we once knew,
All the record bums tried to hack you up,
All the repetition (2) (3)
All the repetition day after day
All the sky is grey
All the stories have been told
All the things I wanna say (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
All the things I wanna say, and (2) (3)
All the urgency and energy (2)
All the wars that were won and lost
All the way he was overtaken
All the well respected men who came dancing and are still on the road
All the world was good to him,
All those early gigs we ever played
All through your life he'll try to bowl you out
All together (2)
All together now!
All we deserve is some peace in our time (2)
All we need (2)
All we need is a little bit of faith
All will be behind us
All work,
All you gotta do is set me free, free, (2) (3) (4)
All you gotta do is set me free, little girl. (2) (3) (4)
All you hear is noise. (Noise)
All your affections finally fade away.
All your life they've kicked you around and pushed you around
All your little life
Along Hollywood Boulevard.
Alright, I'll eat it and afterwards, I'll write a whole verse about your cooking.
Alright, no sacrifice is too great for art!
Although I loved my Daisy, I sought fame,
Although she looked so happy,
Altogether now (2)
Altogether now - Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Always be the same now (2) (3)
Always failed to stay in school
Always lost in blood and guts.
Am I just a face in the crowd, is that all I'll ever be?
Am I overdrawn, am I going in debt?
Am I talking to long distance, can you put me through? (2)
Ambitious eyes set firmly on the future
American tourists flock to see the village green.
Amid the mass disillusion, disorder and confusion,
Among the cats and dogs (2)
An astronaut or a millionaire
An obsessive fixation
An opportunity for luxury living.
An outdated homo sapien.
An overnight sensation on the lips of all the nation
An the future's bright tomorrow,
An uneventful end to a wasted day.
And a big sports car. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
And a fresh made cup of tea.
And a million apologies can't right the wrong.
And a positive embrace
And a profit cries out in high platitudes
And a soul that is free
And a way to improve his own condition
And a well-spoken hero from a yesteryear
And a wife, and your kids and a car
And a woman recognized me and started to scream
And about to descend
And according to astute market analysis
And affections just like you?
And after a hard day sorting out the files (2)
And after a hard day working on the files (2)
And ain't that wonder? (2)
And all her friends will come dancing
And all I ever get is a definite maybe.
And all my enemies are spreading bad news,
And all my friends that used to be,
And all my imperfections
And all of my brothers are customers now
And all of my debts were causing me to defect
And all of my friends were there,
And all of you friends are either married, vanished,
And all over America people are going home
And all over Asia
And all the bag ladies
And all the broken hearts?
And all the debt collectors
And all the directors will be answerable to me,
And all the garden gates
And all the girls in the neighborhood
And all the girls knew Walter's name?
And all the houses in the street have got a name
And all the light had disappeared
And all the little gifts we thought we'd throw away,
And all the logical answers
And all the outtakes you did not see
And all the people in it (2)
And all the people of the town,
And all the pills and the powders are in vain
And all the promises, the lies and deceits.
And all the simple people. (2)
And all the skies, so brilliant blue
And all the troubled world around us
And all the young punks whistle at you.
And all this peaceful living is drivin' me insane.
And all we need
And all your manners are too, too polite,
And all your ways are so untrue,
And always by your brother's side.
And always finishes on time.
And always let it be said
And an angel cries, "Wait, we'll tell you when to move"
And an audience to play to.
And anyone who never had it yet
And anyone who says different is a fuckin' antique
And anyone who says different is an antique
And appreciation of storybooks, fairytales (2)
And appreciation of storybooks, fairytales,
And ask my view on politics and theories on religion.
And ask the stars above, (2)
And at the boozer we'll have another jar,
And ate himself through eternity.
And bamboozle us with facts,
And be happy to be where you are
And be sure to have deserters shot on sight
And beside every crooked man stands an angel with wings
And big Australian barmaids
And black out a pale blue sky,
And Boppin' At The High School Hop.
And bought this piece of ground
And bowl a maiden over.
And bring you home some wine
And buried in their tomb
And buy them clothes and shoes they can wear
And call it a day (2)
And casually clocks their defeat.
And celluloid heroes never really die. (2)
And coffee bars and Ban the Bomb,
And come back home to you,
And come inside
And come to God's call with bat and ball.
And concentrate on living.
And confirmed a reservation
And covered all the ground
And cowboys in Vietnam
And cry misery (2)
And Daisy's married Tom the grocer boy,
And Dandy, you're all right.
And Dandy, you know you can't escape the past.
And dawn was breaking, my mind was calculating
And days into months and months into years
And daytime was dawning
And debase life with crude ostentation,
And decided to dash far away
And deep down we're all the same as one another.
And deep inside
And do it all again
And doesn't know what I'm going through
And don't care much about it
And don't forget the Kray twins
And don't make me responsible
And down and out boozers
And drag me to the ground,
And dreams of games he played when he was young
And drink our afternoon tea
And each creates his heaven and his hell.
And eclipse the sun
And empty cans are gonna make us win
And end up having a fight
And erecting identical concrete monstrosities.
And erotic visions
And Errol Flynn's gonna take her away,
And even aborigines, education.
And even all the grass skirts were PVC.
And even dad said "That boy is bloody marvelous"
And even paradise can be so cruel
And even the Arabs and the Israelites
And even though the sun was out
And even when I'm swimming I have to pay.
And every guy think he can buy her love,
And every home will have a stereo and TV,
And every house and every street,
And every little half-breed, education.
And every little lady dreams,
And every night I close my eyes (2)
And every penny she had
And every single day
And every single word that you said (2)
And every Sunday afternoon,
And every time they get harder and harder to please (2)
And every time you took my love,
And everybody's gonna be terrified,
And everybody's guilty and everybody's innocent,
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are.
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are.
And everybody felt the rain (2)
And everybody said,
And everybody says I'm dumb,
And everybody says it's going to get to the top
And everyone who walks in through that door
And everything's going wild
And everything's right,
And everything changes
And everywhere that I go I say
And faded in the gloom
And feel the knots in your body untie
And feels no disgrace
And filling up the space (2) (3)
And find myself a life I could call my own.
And flirt and dance the whole night through,
And follow the stars
And for a while they'll say your records never make it,
And forced you to act weird
And found a new religion.
And frantically looking for runaway fleas
And friend till the end
And full of titillation
And gasoline fumes are the worst to inhale,
And gave me hope back in 1963
And gave the impression that I did not care,
And generations yet to come,
And get in my car
And get me back on my feet
And get them on the News at Ten.
And get your feet back on the ground
And getting soaking wet,
And go back home again
And goes about her sinful ways.
And gone back to her ma and pa,
And gonna terrify everyone,
And gooseberry tarts
And had learned the secret of life,
And half a million people can't be wrong,
And having fun,
And he'll be a part of me.
And he's as wicked as he can be,
And he's finally proved
And he's got a little tin lady too (2)
And he's got my money, but I've got my faith
And he's got no place to go.
And he's got no time for complicated music or too much sophistication.
And he's got no time for phonies or posers
And he's no liar, 'cos he has truly heard the word
And he's oh so smug, oh yeah. (2)
And he's oh, so fine, (2) (3) (4)
And he's oh, so good,
And he's oh, so healthy, (2) (3) (4)
And he's starting to lose his mind.
And he's taking her out
And he adores the girl next door,
And he astounded his friends with all the knowledge he gained
And he comes back home at five-thirty,
And he curses himself for the life he's led
And he didn't make you and he didn't make me
And he feels bad inside
And he goes to the Regatta,
And he goes to work at nine,
And he got mixed up with a floosie
And he got no right to change us
And he got no right to turn us into machines
And he hopes to grab his father's loot,
And he laughed as he cut the umbilical chord
And he likes his fags the best,
And he likes his own backyard,
And he likes to lick his gravy off a plastic plate.
And he lived with his friends in a house that they'd made
And he looks up ladies' dresses as they sadly pass him by.
And he plays at stocks and shares,
and he plays Little Egypt and Ooh Poo Pah Doo,
And he plays Poison Ivy and Blue Suede Shoes,
And he pointed out on the map
And he really believed it
And he said, "you're not goin' crazy, you're just a bit sad
And he showed all his friends and they passed it around
And he spent his playtime
And he took her money for the rent
And he travelled far and wide
And he washes it down with a brandy,
And he washes up
And her bones might ache and her skin might sag
And her bright and golden hair,
And her curly false eyelashes
And her father and her mother
And her hair was hanging down,
And her liberty, and her smart young friends
And her neighbors think it suits her a treat
And her sisters and her brothers
And her way of life, and her luxury flat
And here we are at the working man's café
And his arms and his legs
And his children wanna be plastic like their dad,
And his mother goes to meetings,
And his neighbors think he's helpful and he's sweet,
And his own sweat smells the best,
And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition,
And his sideburns are turning grey.
And hoping something better comes tomorrow. (2)
and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
And I'd go back if I could only find a way,
And I'd go back if I could only find a way.
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
And I'll always want it to be that way for my Lola
And I'll bake a cake if you tell me
And I'll be paying off the bank for 45 years or more.
And I'll be trying to get the subway train.
And I'll be well satisfied,
And I'll eat fire
And I'll even sleep with his wife,
And I'll give you some spangles.
And I'll have him licking my boots when I put money in his hand.
And I'll see Daisy,
And I'll show you a man who's a liar and in debt.
And I'll start a new craze, I'll be laughing
And I'll teach him how to pose.
And I'm afraid to fall down
And I'm always gonna stay here
And I'm as sick as a dog
And I'm everything that I once despised.
And I'm going to make him a star,
And I'm gonna keep on rollin' till my dying day.
And I'm gonna make a rendezvous.
And I'm gonna ride the tide
And I'm gonna spend my time,
And I'm in perpetual motion and the world below doesn't matter much to me
And I'm just another face,
And I'm just standing on the end of a pier,
And I'm livin' my life on the road.
And I'm livin' the life that I chose.
And I'm losing my mind
And I'm not being cruel,
And I'm not the rogue that I used to be,
And I'm not there
And I'm not voting in the next election, (2)
And I'm saying I'm coming back home to you.
And I'm so scared of heights
And I'm staring at the stars (2)
And I'm still searching for my dream (2)
And I'm thinking about her all the time.
And I'm tired of being patient,
And I've been out of my mind
And I've got imitation moonlight
And I've got no where to run (2)
And I've got no where to swim
and I've inhaled every know remedy
And I've just sold mine. (Did you ever!)
And I acted cool and discreet.
And I ain't gonna let this big world get me down
And I always thought I could make it all on my very own
And I call up the cops
And I can't afford a telephone.
And I can't get away,
And I can't live without her kisses.
And I can't live without her love,
And I can't sail my yacht,
And I can't sleep at night thinking about it.
And I can make you a Star (gonna make you a star),
And I can see a day when enemies are friends.
And I can tell that you're pressurised
And I caught my train and
And I curse myself for the life I've led (2)
And I didn't know then
And I don't have any answers
And I don't know where I'm going, or why I came.
And I don't want to ball about like everybody else, (2) (3)
And I don't want to live my life like everybody else, (2) (3)
And I feel alright, (2) (3)
And I feel alright.
And I feel good, yeah
And I fell for Lavinia
And I flash my Platinum
And I forgot all the grief and the hatred inside,
And I get into places that nobody knows.
And I have never met the queen
And I have waited too long
And I knew that Lavinia
And I know it's a miracle we still go, and for all we know
And I know it's nearly time
And I know that ev'rybody be happy,
And I know that ev'rybody,
And I know that we can make it
And I know that you and me be happy,
And I know that you and me,
And I know what I like.
And I know where I'm goin':
And I know why (2) (3)
And I know why, why (2)
And I know you've got to stay
And I know, and I know (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7)
And I know, and I know, (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
And I know...
And I left for a life of my own.
And I lifted you when you were down
And I love her, I love her.
And I love to live so pleasantly, (2)
And I only get to hold my pen
And I only want to look at you.
And I really do regret it.
And I remember myself in my tie dye sweater,
And I sadly stood my ground
And I said good-bye to my friends
And I said,
And I saw all my friends all around me,
And I saw her standing there
And I see the sun up
And I think "Oh oh, I've scored", start to make myself at home
And I think that it's a permanent condition
And I thought I'd seen her somewhere before
And I treated you like a queen.
And I tried to make my home in Golders Green
And I tried to say hello to her
And I wanna take a look inside
And I want to hold you
And I was just another face
And I was much too young and I wasn't equipped
And I was there the first time so I must know what it's like
And I will make promises I can keep
And I will return there,
And I will save this land
And I will speak well of you
And I wish all his money belonged to me
And I wish I could erase.
And I wish I could have all that he has got
And I wish I could just disappear. (2)
And I won't say that I feel fine like everybody else, (2) (3)
And I won't take it all lying down,
And I wonder where they all are now.
And I would always pull you round
And I would cry
And I would hang up my stocking at Christmas
And if baby isn't there
And if I catch a cold I sneeze.
And if I saw her in the light of day,
And if I seem somewhat afraid
And if I talked about the old times you'd get bored and you'll have nothing more to say.
And if it's happened to you
And if my baby isn't there
And if they ask any questions
And if this should be the last time
And if this were a party
And if those ducks have got to stay
And if we can't see any stars at night
And if we stay here too long, I know that we'll quarrel
And if you're scared what your friend'll say,
And if you've got a fantasy
And if you don't come home with a job son,
And if you feel like a change, well it can all be arranged
And if you forget my face
And if you go on like this the only house you'll ever visit is the nut house (2)
And if you recognize this face, dial 999.
And if you spread the filth on me
And if you stamped on Mickey Rooney
And if you think you're here to mess around,
And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
And if you wanna compete you gotta visualise
And in a dark apartment on the wrong side of town
And in a little shack they had a little sign that said Coca Cola,
And in between it's killing time
And in between, the killing time
And in seeing is believing,
And in the darkest shadow of your mind
And in the elevator.
And in the hotels all the tourists dine on local fare
And in the morning I could see him fade
And in the street taxi cabs crawl around for vice
And individuality.
And into high finance and you've got to agree
And into the infinite (2)
And is she up there out of view
And it's a long way to fall
And it's a one way sign to the gates of hell
And it's a shadow on a sidewalk, someone like you
And it's a shadow on the sidewalk, someone like you
And it's a shadow on the sidewalk, someone you knew
And it's all contrived
And it's all I can get.
And it's always moving, always moving (2)
And it's good-bye to all your dreams.
And it's like the dead of winter
And it's never too late to get a new design
And it's not far away, (2) (3)
And it's not far away. (2)
And it's not so pleasant after all, hey hey.
And it's painfully clear that the battle is near (2)
And it's slowly usin' me,
And it's time for confessing it all,
And it can be quite dangerous
And it comes out here when they've all taken their share
And it don't matter much to him,
And it goes like this (2) (3)
And it goes like this, here it goes
And it goes like this.
And it is said that if you're born within the sound of Bow-Bells
And it is time for confessing it all,
And it makes him feel alright
And it really doesn't matter
And it soon fades away
And it sure knocks you out on the road.
And it touches all the passers-by.
And it was wrong to think our love would never end
And it will never set me free.
And it won't be long 'cos we're right
And Jimmy Porter's learned to laugh and smile,
And Joe Lampton's learned to live a life of style.
And Johnny & The Hurricanes.
And just dance to the music instead.
And just like a two-headed transplant
And just make you smile
And just when I think that I am free of you
And just when I think you're out of my head (2)
And just when I wanted no one to be there,
And keep his uniform tidy
And keep our country clean.
And keep right on till the end of the war
And kissed her by the old oak tree.
And kisses all over, all over
And knocked my reindeer to the floor
And laugh at the sheep
And leather boots up past his knees.
And leave the storm outside?
And leaves us with our fantasy
And led her on the downward trail.
And left me in my stately home,
And let it go right over my head (2) (3) (4)
And let me take you quietly without a fight
And let people see I ain't nobody's slave
And let the suckers go to hell.
And let the sun saturate me with love.
And let the sun shine down on me.
And let you see,
And like a fool, I went and said, "O.K."
And listening to both sides. (2)
And Little Miss Queen of Darkness
And live off the land.
And lock your doors and stay inside. (2)
And look a little on the funny, sunny side of life,
And look a little on the sunny side.
And look at a duck that can't quack.
And lookin' at the people standing face to face
And lookin' at the people, standing face to face
And lookin' at the people. standing face to face
And looking for a four leaf clover (2)
And make his uniform tidy
And make like an ape man (2)
And make like an ape man.
And make out a smile, though I wear a frown,
And make you feel good for a while.
And make you think there's nothing left to fear
And Mama knows, 'cause Mama was the same
And man made the motorcar and learned how to fly
And maybe, he'll stay in love with you.
And me the ordinary man
And monitor the human brain,
And moved out to another town.
And Mr. Mountbatten says
And mummy didn't need no boys
And my agent said to me: "Son, I always told you so."
And my Cuban heels are hurting my feet,
And my dad's a Greek.
And my feet are nearly frozen,
And my folks back home.
And my head full of songs and my eyes full of stars
And my head is full of learning,
And my hipster corduroy flares.
And my holiday treat felt complete.
And my mother is Italian,
And my mum would always sit up and wait.
And my new man is a vegetarian
And my umbrella,
And never let it get us down, we gotta put up a fight (2)
And no man is a saint (2)
And no more reminiscing.
And no one's gonna listen when you try to plead your case.
And no one cared.
And no one knew my name.
And no suppression of minorities. Well alright. (2)
And nobody gives or is willing to concede.
And nobody trusts or is willing to believe
And Noel Coward has become very hard
And Noel Coward has become very odd
And not an angry young man's passion.
And now all the houses
And now he's such a well respected man.
And now he owns a grocery.
And now I'm just a no one.
And now I've got friends that I never knew I had before.
And now it's every man for himself.
And now it looks like you've gone
And now survival is my only aim.
And now the clown does a fart and we all fart back
And now there's no more love,
And now there's not a place that Polly hasn't been.
And now they're coming to take me away
And now we're back where we started,
And now we see you on the television.
And now we see your children
And now we want some of your precious wealth,
And now we want some of your precious wealth.
And now you paid your debt
And occupy my idle mind
And old dads trousers
