[Chorus x2]
I’m never goin’ down.
I’m never goin’ down again,
even if they all pass me by.
Even if they all pass me by.

I wish I had an old friend.
If I had a good old friend
to drink it in the kitchen,
I’d love him from ten 'til ten.

I’m never going down.

I wish I had a little friend.
I wish I had a good little friend
to sneak into my garden gate;
I’d love him from eight ‘til late

[Chorus x2]
I’m never goin’ down.
I’m never goin’ down again,
even if they all pass me by.
Even if they all pass me by.

    General CommentMost of this seems accurate, the only thing I am really unsure of is these lines:

    "to drink it in the kitchen," & "I’d love him from eight ‘til late."

    I know there's a chapbook that I ordered, but these were taken from ear. I am going to ask the band if it's okay to print the lyrics here, as I wouldn't want to disrupt sales of their chapbook.
