Jimmy Lee, chip pan grease
set fire to the school canteen
all the children had to leave
they missed school for the day
the teachers still got paid

Ivan the terrible looks after some animals
turkeys and highland cattle
he sells them for their meat
he's a farmer on his feet
sitting on a railway line
scaring all the passers by
stars and stripes flash in their eyes
scared the kids off the bus
the driver gave no fuss

Lives his life so dangerously
goes by the name of American Steve
keeps some hammers up his sleeve
he's a man you'd like to meet
but don't give him no cheek
don't give him no cheek

we won't forget your face
no we won't forget you face
sit and watch the world all day
when you have done one
you'll go like the bouncing bomb
and you'll bounce bounce bounce
and you'll free the dam
when you have to go
when you're dead and gone
the bouncing bomb will be remembered

John the landlord takes no slack
he don't care if you never come back
sits down with a black bin bag
it's full of CD's
he'll give you one for free

Hazel sits by the bar
drinking beer and advakat
has to sneak out for her tar
she thinks no one knows she smokes
little does she know
little do we know

we won't forget your face
no we won't forget you face
sit and watch the world all day
when you have done one
you'll go like the bouncing bomb
and you'll bounce bounce bounce
and you'll free the dam
when you have to go
when you're dead and gone
the bouncing bomb will be remembered

Wendy walks the roads all day
lost her house she lost her way
scarf coat and an anorak
she's looking for her man
she knows she never can

don't forget about Steve the mean
kept his money in a submarine
he'd been shaking money trees
he was an entrepeneur
but no one really cared
they just sit back and stared
