Well I’m looking for the corner That spring is just around And bringing home the rainbow’s end That has not yet been found And washing in the water That flows off a ducks back And holding out the hands of time that cannot be turned back I’ll hang out with the cows That are never coming home And keep off all the roads That always lead to Rome Lived high off the hog or was it hand to mouth I’m going through the motions while everything goes south That’s just my silhouette has not grown up yet Just treads water Shoots the breeze Charms the birds From the morning trees Never found a brick wall To knock my head against And no-one is as black as everybody paints I do not have a number that ever will come up No brightly colored ribbons tied around my cup I’m happy with the trees I do not need to see the wood Missed a lot of targets but it’s the test of time I stood Am not that kind of worker who always blames his tools Play up to the gallery cant play by the rules Don’t show me the ropes because I’ll tie myself in knots I joined a one man army and joined up all the dots Started on the warpath to fight for a lost cause But I turned tail and scarpered to even up the scores Took the road out to Damascus wearing only dead men’s shoes Pulled up all the olive branches no one could refuse So when I put down roots with you we’ll both be safe and sound Because I’ve found that corner that spring was just around
Some Bloke 03:34
some bloke on a train from clapham south bound for worthing thought he heard a funny noise or was that something burning told the british rail man but he didn’t want to know they cut him out with torches laid his body in the snow some bloke i was talking to last tuesday in the dragon said he dumped his wife couldn’t stand the grief and naggin met him there on Friday and we got talking again said he’d moved out on the wednesday and have you met my boyfriend ken some blokes do the horses and some blokes watch the telly some don’t give a monkeys and some they give it welly some work on the allotments where they dig deep down for gold and though some blokes turn tale and run they know they’ll never flee the fold some bloke in a car near Swindon west he needs a breather didn’t see the HGV which didn’t see him either wakes up in Swindon hospital he’ll never walk again but he’s fallen for the night nurse and shares her maiden name some bloke in a bettin shop he’s down to his last 50 puts it on an outside shot which turns out rather nifty when he hits the high street has a cardiac arrest celestial facilitator thinks it’s for the best
