"Most Exclusive Residence For Sale" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
It was the biggest house in the neighborhood.
He went and bought this house when he made good.
Ten bedrooms and a swimming pool,
Where he entertained all the people that he knew.
But he hit the hard times and had to sell out.
Most exclusive residence for sale.
He went and spent all the money that he had.
Because he had a heart and not a head.
He spent it all on girls and fancy jewelry.
Then he found himself in front of a judge and jury,
And the judge said to pay up, our you must sell out.
Most exclusive residence for sale.
He had to tell all the servants to go away.
Couldn't even afford to pay their way.
He took to the bottle and drunk himself down,
Then he soaked away all the troubles and let them drown.
Then he saw a notice on the wall,
Most exclusive residence for sale.
Most exclusive residence for sale.

    General CommentI believe this song is a precursor to "Sunny Afternoon". Both songs are on Face To Face, this comes first, and Sunny Afternoon a few songs later. Both songs feature a guy who was filthy rich at one time, but is not anymore. We don't know why, but we do know that he likes the finer things in life, has an eye for the ladies, enjoys a drink or several, and isn't shy about spending his money.

    And doesn't have a hard time finding people help him spend his money. All the people coming to his parties, all the girls accepting jewelry. I would imagine the girlfriend in Sunny Afternoon took full advantage, even taking his car with her.

    So apparently he still has the house and the yacht, but not many friends, and hardly any money. He's even drinking beer, for chrissake.
