My name's Mr Wilson
And I'm out on this ledge
With my hands out stretched
My feet together
Cause I've reached my tether
I take a deep breath
My cheeks get redder
The pavement will spell it, I don't need no letters
I gambled everything and now I've got nothing
If I was watching, I'd probably take odds on me jumping
I shuffle to the edge, I'm fifty stories up
And I think this is the end, 'cos I think I'm gonna jump
Would someone please...

Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again
Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again
Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again
Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again

Now I know by my standards
That's loads of by-standers
I look down and see the crowd talking in sign language
In the wind my tie's flapping
I can see lights flashing
I feel my tears stick to my eye-lashes
There's no going back on this, looks like I'm still jumping
I've done the mathematics on it like Good Will Hunting
And all I can hear in my head is unchained melody
Which is strange 'cos I never fell in love with anybody
I left some funeral money and cleaned my flat
Plus a note with the neighbor asking her to feed my cat
I got summer time butterflies cause winters waiting for me
It's a starry night like Vincent painted it for me
The bachelor
Who never asked for anything spectacular
I hope they have to peel me off the pavement with a spatula
I'm about to risk everything and I've never felt happier
Yet I've never felt angrier
My name is the gambler
Would somebody please...

Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again
Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again
Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again
Will they call my home and
Say I won't be back again...
