This didn't used to be me, old boy
This isn't what I'd want
Pullin' old night fighters
In a restaurant

There's smoke and flames behind me
Where the self-respect all went
And I'm behind, behind with the rent

I've been stitched up like a kipper, old son
But I won't be again
Hell hath no fury
Oh, I'm like a lot of men

Now I'm stalkin' this old Doris
