Standing in the dock at Southampton


Trying to get to Holland Or France


The Man In the Mac said


You gotta go back


you know they didnt even give us a chance


you know it aint easy


you know how hard it can be


the way things are going ...


theyre gonna crucify me.


Finally made the plane into paris

honeymooning down by the seine

peter brown called to say

you can make it ok

you can get married in gibraltar near spain ..


you know it aint easy.... etc


Drove from paris to the amsterdam hilton

talking in our beds for a week

the newspapers said

whatre you doing in bed

i said we're only trying to get us some peace ...


you know it aint easy...etc




saving all your money for a rainy day

giving all your clothes to charity



last nite the wife said

oh boy when youre dead


You dont take nothing with you but your soul

[final two verses corrected]


Made a lightning trip to Vienna

Eating chocolate cake in a bag

The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head

They look just like two gurus in drag" ...CHORUS


Caught the early plane back to London

Fifty acorns tied in a sack

The men from the press say "We wish you success

It's good to have the both of you back"...CHORUS



(from Past Masters 2, originally released as a single in 1969)
