"Levi Stubbs' Tears" as written by and Billy Bragg....
With the money from her accident
She bought herself a mobile home
So at least she could get
Some enjoyment out of being alone
No one could say that she was
Left up on the shelf
It's you and me against the world kid
She mumbled to herself

When the world falls apart
Some things stay in place
Levi Stubbs' tears
Run down his face

She ran away from home
In her mother's best coat
She was married before
She was even entitled to vote
And her husband was one of those blokes
The sort who only laughs at his own jokes
The sort the war takes away
And when there wasn't a war, he left anyway


Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong
Are here to make right everything that's wrong
Holland and Holland and Dozier too
Are here to make it all OK with you

One dark night
He came home from the sea
And put a hole in her body
Where no hole should be
It hurt here more
To see him walking out the door
A though they stitched her back together
They left her heart in pieces on the floor

When the world fall apart
Some things stay in place
She takes off the Four Tops tape
And puts it back in its case
