Lyrics

I have been smashed again
With the men from the old
Valhalla road crematorium
Boring them with the same old patter

I am a simple man
Not much to gain or lose
And I don't know why
I held out so long for me and you

Until he drew a swallow on my neck
And more I will not say
He drew a swallow deep and blue
And soon, everyone knew

Then I was wrecked again
With the men full of bluff and ardour
From a well-known funeral parlor

I am a simple man
Not much to gain or lose
Older, wiser
Never applies to me

And so he drew a swallow on my neck
And more I will not say
He drew a swallow deep and blue
And soon, everyone knew

You have been telling me
That I have been acting childish
Foolish, ghoulish and childish
Oh, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know
But I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
