Button your lip. Don't let the shield slip.
And if they try to break down your disguise with their questions
"I'll tell you what, I'll give you three blacks, and play you for five"
"Time gentleman!"

Fixing your grin as you casually lean on the bar,
With the boys in the crowd
Behind petrified eyes.
You believed in their stories of fame, fortune and glory.
The pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high.
Behind brown and mild eyes.
