Hey kid, you looking for a lift?...Get on up here
How's it going good buddy?
I nailed ducks to the wall
Kept my heart in dark ruins
I built bungalows all over the hills
Dunroamin, duncarin, dunlivin
Took my girl to the country
To sleep out under the moon
Next thing she's going crazy
Women are like that kid
What the hell can you do?
She waits for the real Mr. Right to come
Gently removing her heart
With his promises of real communication
I saw a program about that on TV........
Who's always picking up the tab
Who built a bungalow for his mum and dad
Who took you out to all the shows
Who worked his fingers to the bone
While you were asleep
It was me...I did
I kept you in buttons and bows
Christ all those clothes
So you could encourage this creep
With his neat feet
And his clean fingernails
With his wise but twinkling eyes
He's a rock standing out in an ocean of doubt
Get movin', get off the road ya Goddam faggot
And compromise
I'd like to go on with this bit of a song
Describing this schmuck
I'd like to go on, but I'm going to throw up
Not in my rig you don't boy...get the hell out of here

    General CommentI may be way off, but i think this might be a metaphor for pink Floyd. Roger did all he could to make Floyd grow, only for it to be taken by the "schmuck" David Gilmour

    General CommentFirst to comment, eh? Pros and Cons looks at a series of dreams that lead Roger to realise that he infact loves the woman that he is with. During the Animals recording sessions Roger was in the middle of a divorce from his wife hence the reason The Wall, TFC and this album all contain alot of references to relationships, break ups, evil women etc.

    Roger comparing himself to the person who stole his woman. How he did everything for her and he built her a stable life and then someone else has come along and stole it all from him. This could well be a reference to his divorce as being in a huge rock band he'd have had alot of money that would've been taken from him when he divorced his wife.
