1. Well ah didnae wake up this mornin, cause somebody laced ma gin.
When ah finally rose ah went down on my nose, cause they also laced
ah went down for some beechems, and I thought Id crack me a can.
I got back upstairs I was gobsmacked,-- see ah stei in a caravan.
I took out my Yamaha, -- and sat me down to write a song.
But I couldnt put pen to paper, -- cause my petrol tank was gone.
I got out my dohbro, put some riffs down on that tape-deck on the shelf.
Then I played it back and I joined in, -- cause I like playin with
Well my Maisie she done left me, cause Im just too fond of that weed.
Ah but lifes for livin baby, --- cause youre a lang time deid.
went down to Sooky Tawdrys, -- she lives up to her name boy you can
Oh Lawdy, Lawdy, Lawdy give me chastity, but not --- quite --- yet.
Well Maisies ol man he came after me, with his 45 and his eyes so full
But he didnt stand a chance against, ------- my big -78.
ol Bill he done catch me, and Im lyin in this prison-cell for my sin.
Id have made my escape easy but, --- I still hudnae unlaced my shin.
its a thousand miles to breakfast, but its even further to Nepal.
Well youd better take your mac Jack cause a hard rains a-gonna fall.
you cant keep a horse in a lighthouse, or off a bus your granny kick.
Cause the Leith police dismisseth us, --- and the sixth sheikhs
sixth sheeps sick.
Dont live your life in no fast lane, --- and stay clear of that smack and
Or youll wind up singin those lateral thinkin eat your greens
(Just make up your own 12
bar blues tune.)
