lyrics

Bodies in the back so we can sing without an ounce
Of regret in our pockets and weighing us all down
As lovers we would speak all night
It was alright

But then the boot becomes a burden when you’re trying to lay low
and honesty corrects itself without the need to crow
A mollusc of a man he drives
What a ride

And though it took a long time to get there
There was never any doubt
With honour, fame and money they would all look at her funny
But with nothing, she’d draw crowds

Singing out
OO OOO

Samango’s making noise because his sweetheart’s locked away
a mile down the road inside a battered old ribcage
The mayor of the sleepers cries
Before he lies

For every injustice and prejudice that he’s had to endure
He’ll scream and scream and scream until they’re kicking down his door
He’ll stop when the night is done
Oh what fun!

And though it took a long time to get there
There was never any doubt
With money, money, money they would all look at her funny
But with nothing, she’d draw crowds

Singing out
OO OOO

Ready or not the sun will rise
and we’ll all get the chance to close our eyes

You’ve discovered me, while I was discovering you
