about

About the coolest Londoner I know.

lyrics

Pennies on the bar stool
He’s leveling it
He ain’t ashamed,
Just an honest soul
Crustacean backed
As he picks up the slack
Other fools take credit for their own
Oh sometimes he feels he’s all alone
In a place I guess he’ll call it home
What he means, he ain’t missin’ you

What? You wanted absinthe?
He’ll smuggle it in
He leaves no trail
Makes no presence known
He caught it on the wrist,
Watch he’ll break and break hold
Of the worries of the working man
As he came in from a foreign land
He’s got two, but got some stubby hands
But he don’t need you

And heeeeeeeeee
Explores on his own
Says the less he finds
The less he knows
And youuuuuuuuu
Might spot him beside the road
Where he walks?
He says he’s walking home

Sitting at the back step
He’s pondering it
He wastes no time
How could he let it go?
He’s looking for… then snap, trap
Got nowhere to go
He’s a servant of the working man
As he came in from a foreign land
He’s got two, but got some stubby hands
But he don’t need you

And heeeeeeeeee
Explores on his own
Says the less he finds
The less he knows
And youuuuuuuuu
Might spot him beside the road
Where he walks?
He says he’s walking home

Sitting at the back step
He’s pondering it
He wastes no time
How could he let it go?
He’s looking for… then snap, trap
Got nowhere to go
He’s a servant of the working man
As he came in from a foreign land
He’s got two, but got some stubby hands
But he don’t need you

Oh no and he
Where he walks
Says he’s walking home, home,
Ohhhh yeaaaaah
says he’s walking home
