It was all part of the bereavement dividend Dave double dropped a Fishermans Friend He was up all night
His highness with the cleared sinus
A cough that could cut down Geoff Capes
Role ups from a Scuttler on our breaks
Make a mix with anything and everything on hand
With a spring in your step at Beachy Head
Another dream washes up dead
There’s only so many times i can play the Hull Adelphi On the talkative end of a shot of Lysterine
How’s your mother been?
I didn’t like her
I didn’t like he anyway
It’s the same old story
American smile, British teeth
Half your heart in your handkerchief When your kids can’t eat
You do whatever’s necessary
Went body popping on your grave Drank cheap aftershave
Draft Old Spice and a Gaviscon chaser Power Lines are bored of skipping ropes Cooling towers sit and smoke
I think the thin one drank the bong water He’s spewing everywhere
Friends are pushing up daisy’s like crazy There’s something in the air
There’s something in this shit that we all drink
I bet you go with him to the shops
In your old Pyjamas and your bed socks I hope your happy
You tied the knot
So i tied the knot
Friends are pushing out baby’s
Like crazy
Theres something in the air
There’s something in this shit that we all drink
