How did I get here so fast?
Long, long.
Time, time.
By silver hearse.

I fall asleep on the couch.
And then wake lonely and afraid of the dark.
Last weeks milk is left on the doorstep.
Thickly curdled and smelling of yellow.
No one knows I’m here for sure.

How did I get here so fast?
Long, long.
Time, time.
By silver hearse.

In my youth I was sweetness and light.
Tee Pee valley was my home
There was a girl.
Painted lips, painted eyes
Who held a gong in mid air?
Now I cant remember my last name.
But now I can remember.
Now I can remember.

How did I get here so fast?
Long, long.
Time, time.
By silver hearse.

Mothballs, knitting and Radio Two.
Sing something filthy as days go by
With digestives and a mug of coco if I’m lucky.
I don’t care.
I’ll be dead soon.
Like Grocer Jack.
The garden fence will fall with rot.
The roof will sag.
The next generation will develop.
Some one else will be cool.
Some one else will be cruel.
They’ll build a wind generator on my grave
And still be thrown into darkness.
Hear me.
My name is Harry.
I use to cut the grass.
There goes my death rattle.
I think I am dead.

How did I get here so fast?
Long, long.
Time, time.
By silver hearse.
