Shine a light down
Shine a light down
See him go running up the street
Shine a light down
Shine a light down
He's not the kind you'd like to meet
Say the right thing
Act the wrong way
He'll see right through your vain diguise
Say the wrong thing
Act the right way
He'll see it through your limpid eyes.

I don't work for anybody
We don't work for anybody
I don't work for anybody
We don't work for anybody.

Shine a light down
Shine a light down
The streets you've never walked before
Shine a light down
Shine a light down
Where dogs they howl and cats they call
Shine a light down
Shine a light down
See him go running up the street
Shine a light down
Shine a light down
He's not the kind you'd like to meet

I don't work for anybody
We don't work for anybody
I don't work for anybody

monologue.
WHO? WHERE? WHEN? WHAT? WHY?

QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERS,
ANSWERS THAT RAISE MORE QUESTIONS
I PICKED MYSELF UP, OUT OF THE COLD,
HARD GUTTER... I USUALLY LAND ON MY FEET!

THE AIR WAS DARK AND THE STEAM ROSE
FROM THE ASPHALT, STRAIGHT FROM THE
SWEATY DEPTHS OF HELL...
I'VE GOT A FEW MORE LIVES LEFT IN ME YET...
OH, WHAT I WOULDN'T GIVE FOR SOME MILK,
FULL CREAM

I JUMPED A FENCE AND STAYED ONTO
THE MAIN DRAG, IT WAS GOOD TO SEE SOME
LIFE AGAIN

PROSTITUTES, JUNKIES AND DOGS -
WASTED LIFE, BUT LIFE NONE THE LESS

THEN, ALL OF A SUDDEN, SOMETHING CAUGHT MY
WHISKERS - A SHORT FUR COAT WITH
LEGS FOR MILES...
BUT BEFORE I GOT GET WITHIN 9 LIVES
TOMCAT!
BURMESE TO THE LEFT, CHESHIRE TO THE RIGHT
GET YOUR FILTHY PAWS AWAY FROM MY
FUCKING PUSSY!!!

WHO? WHERE? WHEN? WHAT? WHY?

QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERS,
ANSWERS THAT RAISE MORE QUESTIONS
I PICKED MYSELF UP OUT OF THE COLD, HARD
GUTTER I USUALLY LAND ON MY FEET!

Shine a light down
Shine a light down
See him go running up the street
Shine a light down
Shine a light down
He's not the kind you like to meet
Say the right thing
Act the wrong way
He'll see right through your vain disguise
Say the wrong thing
Act the right way
When he comes crawling after you!
