Each night, while you sleep,
I’m digging, digging deep,
Elusive, out of view,
Shy and hiding away from you,
I’m staying out of sight,
Like those creatures of the night
I’m not young, but still wild and free,
I just want to say, basically…

Basically, I’ve got nothing to say,
I should have listened more to you,
When you came, you spun, you ran away,
Slapped my face to Timbuctoo.

Basically, I’m a lazy anarchist,
I’ll write the songs, you march the streets,
Hey, Miss Frigid-Rigid-Never-Been-Kissed,
I’ll distract the guard, you steel the sweets.

My one regret is that I let you go,
And perhaps that I just moved much too slow,
I’m sorry that I never had ya,
Basically, I’m a badger.

Basically, I’m a crocodile,
This lazy hunter waits for prey,
Sometimes it seems I’m waiting quite a while,
But honey, I’ll be eating you all day.

My one regret is that I let you go,
And perhaps that I just moved much too slow,
I’m sorry that I never had ya,
Basically, I’m a badger.

Basically, I’m a hat stand,
Just one job, and it doesn’t break backs,
I often think to myself, “That’s grand!”
‘Cos I don’t pay no income tax.

My one regret is that I let you go,
And perhaps that I just moved much too slow,
I’m sorry that I never had ya,
Basically, I’m a badger.
I’m sorry that I never had ya,
Basically, I’m a badger.
