lyrics

My uncle fell asleep
With a lit cigarette on his lip
When it dropped the fire spread
Faster than you could say dead
It seems smoking would kill him one way or the other

He did not trust the banks
Kept his money under the planks
Had no insurance on his life
So costs were covered by his wife
I guess she didn't have to pay for the cremation anyway

And I inherited his car
81 Datsun Pulsar

And that's what I drive
On my way to work
I don't work in an office
My hands are what I offer
Meet my new clientele in a local hotel of their choice

But now it might be time
To call it quits
What were once close calls
Are now turning into incidents
Last month a lady attacked me for my impotence

That's how I got this scar
In my 81 Datsun Pulsar

And I'm out on the Hume Highway
In a small car
Marvin is singing to me
If only I had a Pontiac
I wanna turn the lights off
And put my weight in the pedal
And just see what happens
I don't care what happens
And just see what happens
I don't care what happens
And just see what happens
I don't care, I don't care

And just 'cause you act
Like you're a precious princess
Doesn't mean you deserve a happy ending
That's always come at an extra cost

I should have finished my diploma
I should have finished my diploma
I should have finished my diploma
I should have finished my diploma

about

The S-Bends Sydney, Australia

One slip & you’re back (The Go-Betweens, Paul Kelly, The VU ‘69) but somehow still stuck in the now - a Sydney stain of expensive rent, boredom, the mist off of the Archibald Fountain, Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, cheap Jetstar flights, broken guitar strings, cracked paint, indoor plants. ... more
