Ever seen a blind man cross the road
Ever seen a young girl growing old

When they have finally stripped you of
That your Granddad had to sweat so you could buy

And all I thought I had to do was smile
And you bought everything in style
Listen
'Cause you don't mean a single thing without
That your Granddad had to sweat so you could buy
Sing a song of six-pence for your sake
Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake

So what I suggest you just throw them all away
That your poor old Granddad had to sweat to buy
They told me you missed school today
The handbags and the gladrags
