I am sleeping in the park
I'm thirsty like a low tide shark
the only time I get to see my wife is by her new man in the MALL...
wait a minute... think I'm gonna FALL...
I have shot the president
I'm queen of Brittain for a cent
for fifty bucks I'll do a trick
your wallet might not be as thick as you recall it to have been before

good-bye my friends
you won't ever see me wheeling again
this chair is gone
and so is prawn!

easy come, said grinning prawn
but suddenly it all was gone
made a mil but paid the bill
an oilfield in the middle east
butt scuds were having fire-feast, same noon

people turn around and they look at me
don't they see that I've just lost both of my legs
and my company burned down to the lawn I did piss on the day I was born?
now I am a prawn!

fascinated eyes in disguise smiling at me
I know they're telling lies 'cuz their eyes don't like to see!
that crippled little rebel in the chair must be gone before the dawn.
but I'm a prawn!

didn't you see the show with the miracle man and his band?
lots of good songs and a lot of good digging fans
that I was sledging down the strings with their hearts in my hand?
bvadr!

breaking up the band wasn't easy for me to do
'cuz I had made plans for my company hoochiekoo
makingamoneydasupadacalidafragidalisticaexpialiyawn
became a prawn!

good-bye my friends
you ain't never gonna see me again
my life depends on wine'n'women, song'n'dance

good-bye my friends
you won't ever see me wheeling again
this chair is gone
and so is prawn!

    General CommentMy first thought before actually seeing the lyrics, was that he was well of but ended up as an injured war veteran during the golf war (that was what i got out of the oil thing).
    But it seems to be about a rich man who ends up getting fired from his oil company (butt scuds were having fire-feast).
    Now he's a homeless, not necessarily crippled, but people don't want to acknowledge his existence. I'm guessing that he is either planning on offing himself, leaving town or somehow miraculously redeem himself.
