I be a man, kinda mystery man
Be a doll, be a baby doll
It can't be fun, not anyway
It can't be found no way at all
A distant man can't sympathise
He can't uphold his distant laws
Due to form on that today
I got a feeling then I hear this call

I said neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no gun at all
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She ain't got no name to call
Neat neat neat

No crime if there ain't no law
No cops left to mess you around
No more dreams of mystery chords
No more sight to bring you down
I got a crazy got a thought in my mind
My mind's on when she falls asleep
Feelin' fine in her restless time
Then these words upon me creep

I said neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no gun at all
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She ain't got no name to call
Neat neat neat

I be a man, kinda mystery man
Be a doll, like a baby doll
It can't be fun, not anyway
It can't be found no way at all
A distant man can't sympathise
He can't uphold his distant laws
Due to form on that today
I got a feeling then I hear this call

I said neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no gun at all
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She ain't got no name to call
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She ain't got no name to call
Neat neat neat
She can't afford no cannon
Neat neat neat
She ain't got no name to call
Neat neat neat

    General CommentRather innovative lyrics for it's time, the song this album came from (Damned, Damned, Damned) predates never mind the bollocks by about 9 months I think.... although they did have that spunk album.. Great band. Influenced many bands to come I'm sure.

    General CommentIt actually sounds like he's beating his girlfriend and the cops won't stop him.

    General CommentI think the song is about living by your rules and not caring what others thinks. I believe the words "neat neat neat" are an apathetic response to the world. A distant who can't sympathize has distant laws, he lives his life how he chooses, even if it's difficult for others to understand him.
