Opening LyricsSong Title
A man walks down the street and he says 'Why am I soft in the middle now? Why am I soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?'
Well I'm accustomed to a smooth ride, or maybe I'm a dog who's lost his bite.
The couple in the next room are bound to win a prize, they've been going at it all night long.

The mama pyjama rolled out of bed and she ran to the police station.
We heard the fireworks, rushed out to watch the sky. Happy-go-lucky, fourth of July.
May twelve angels guard you as you sleep. Maybe that's a waste of angels; I don't know.
The Mississippi Delta was shining like a national guitar.

After I'd died and the make-up had dried I went back to my place.
I met my old lover on the street last night, she seemed so glad to see me.
Fat Charlie the archangel sloped into the room.
'Well, did you bring me my money? My cab fare? My new shoes? I've got expenses, y'know, where's my weekly dues?'
