The gospel according to Tony Day (x3)
If I find a girl he'll take her away
Rotten Tony

The gospel according to Brendan O'Lear (x3)
If I buy him a scotch he'll buy me a beer
Tight fist, friends

The gospel according to Pat Hewitt (x3)
If it's written on a sweater then I'd better not do it
gotta gotta, your mind, blow it, blow it

The gospel according to Marianne Brent (x3)
she'll be mine if I pay the rent
Good old Marianne, who needs friends, oh

That's the fucking time, take a look at my life and you'll see
Take a quick, butchers, rotten Mary down the oak
Wouldn't give me two pence for him

    My OpinionThe narrator is explaining his interpretation through a few people. Tony Day, Pat Hewitt, Marianne Brent, Brendan O'Lear. Perhaps he is trying to give someone a warning.
