big town blues (i)
that was this morning

you know you’ve got problems
when you flush the bog
& it doesn’t refill

that was last night

of course dozy idiot here
used it this morning
then remembered

that was this morning

so i rang the landlord
woke the poor bugger up
he was round pretty quick

that was this morning too

turned out the guy downstairs
came in drunk and collapsed
didn’t notice the cataract

that was last night

so the plumber came
cursing hard working
ripped out the floors

that was this morning

i just packed
the landlord saw and agreed
i’m in an hotel

that was this morning too

i reckon he’d skimped
an overflow’s been overflowing a month
now his luck’s overflowed

that was misjudgement

but now
i don’t feel i’ve a home
i’m in a hotel with no bed to go back to

that’s not nice
