Song Lyrics

again I step out my yard

head swings round, clocks my landlord

start chippin` up the road cos I owe him three-weeks dough

the ship`s sinkin`, tele`s on the blink

`n` in the pub it`s one beer to last all evening

later on chips for feedin`

when the quids are down

try sneakin` a bottle of brandy round bouncers into the Ministry Of Sound

scored, Moffat, back indoors with a profit

`cos they do say havin` no money forces one to make the right choices on life each day

if you can`t pay you can`t play

success hides a multitude of sins

but I ain`t successful and my piggy-bank`s still in the bin,

been there since I was a kid

goin` round in circles, not being careful but say;

"I get paid on Friday, can`t wait to live life my way"

`cos on the streets I`m just a geezer

I gotta make ends meet, yeah?

gotta do what I need to

sh*t, we all got our runnin`s now

on the streets I`m just a geezer

gotta make ends meet, yeah?

gotta do what I need to

sh*t, we all got our runnin`s now

Brut pocket I`m back in the Burassic seat again

after spending sixty pound last week on beers with friends

brought it all on myself see, granted

now I`m scorin` draw for everyone to get my next spliff sorted

hang round mum`s house to get smothered

got no tins in the cupboard this week

hold on to your seat `cos it`s all gone a bit Pete

live for the moment said he *wrong*

downin` beers out of my tree, now the moment`s passed the cash is a distant memory

you know things are bleak when you`re tellin` the birds you asked out last week that things

are busy

when really you`ve got no dough in the piggy

two days after pay day`s clocked

and it`s back at The Black Dog stuffin` them socks into pool table pockets


I`m skint, got no moolah

need to get some colour in my cheeks says mum

that`ll be my English inner city tan

I`m skinny like a woman, need to get some punan` through the door

*Please Sir, can I have some more?*


oi, lend me a tenner so I can go to the chip-shop,

twenty-four garage and then for a quick top,

this time opting for the reassuringly cheap option

when the quids are down,

my Schott hoodie`s my ball gown

my essential accessory is my bad day frown `cos,

life in the third-class carriage can be evil

when your only ticket to freedom is a permit to travel

so, Uncle Shiner, you best go get the spade and dig me a grave

`cos I can`t pay the rent but I got ` hundred-and-nine pound pair o` trainers on


La la la

and then this geezer turned round to me and said

"What are you doing, you twat"

and I was like

"What the f**k, is this, what are you saying, you div?"

oi'¦ that`s it.
