VERSE 1

GA mile and a half on a bus takes a long time, The odour of old prison food
C takes a long time to pass you by
GDay upon day of this wandering gets you down, nobody gives you a chance or a
Cdollar in this old town
GHovering silence from you is a giveaway, squalor and smoke's not your style
CI don't like this place, We better go
G Then I compare notes with your older sister, I am a lazy get, she is as pure
Cas the cold driven snow
D G VERSE 2
GWhat did you learn from your time in the solitary cell of your mind?
CThere was noises, distractions from anything good and the old prison food
GColour my life with the chaos of trouble
GCause anything's better than posh isolation, I missed the bus, You were laid
on your back
DWith the boy with the arab strap
GWith the boy from the arab strap
G C G C D C G VERSE 3
GIt's something to speak of the way you are feeling to crowds there assembled
CDo you ever feel you have gone too far?
GEveryone suffers in silence a burden, the man who drives minicabs down in Old Compton
C DThe Asian man With his love/hate affair with his racist clientele
GA central location for you is a must as you stagger about making free with
Cyour lewd and lascivious boasts
GWe all know you are soft because we've all seen you dancing
CWe know you are hard because we all saw you drinking from noon until noon again
DYou're the boy with the filthy laugh
GYou're the boy with the arab strap
G C G C VERSE 4
GStrapped to the table with suits from the shelter shop
C Comic celebrity takes a back seat as the cigarette catches and sets off the smoke alarm
GWhat do you make of the cool set in London?
CYou're constantly updating your hit parade of your ten biggest wanks
DShe's a waitress and she's got style
GSunday bathtime could take a while
