Lyrics
Arthur played the bass.
He had an angel's face.
Jiving with the Hoodoos, man,
No-one could take his place

No, No, No!
He needed extra cash
So he drove his brother's cab.
The day we heard the news, you know

It really hit us bad.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!
That was the day that Arthur died.

A black gelato van
Finished for the day,
Met with Arthur's taxi head-on
Down St.Kilda way

(By the Prince Of Wales).
That was the way that Arthur died
Upon the day that Arthur died.
