cheap, but it's hard.
when one lowers one's guard to the vultures.
now me i'm regarded, but torturous hardship that smolders.
like a peppermint, eaten away.
will i fight? will i swagger or sway?
hee hee, m'lady. she cries like a baby.
i scold her.
see her tumbling down.(tumbling down)
see her tumbling down (tumbling down)
hail to the monkey, we're having a funky reunion.
wasted and sunk, he can only have sunday communion.
he's got nicotine stains in his eyes.
he's got nothing to protect but his pride.
oh, smother a kiss or be drowned in blissful confusion.
see her tumbling down (tumbling down) x3
tumbling down (tumbling down)

    General CommentIndeed, crippledmcgimp, the soundtrack far excells the movie! Although i must say i prefer this song with Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel.
