The sun is cracking the flags Shoving the nags o' the world back underneath their stones The sun is mugging the rain Making it plain to the world, she's out to ease them bones Sun in Valletta - listening to Frank & to Captain Beefheart Makes me feel better Since I split up with my childhood sweetheart Chorus Sail in to Rio - served with papers by two hyenas Dampens my brio She's taking me to the bloody cleaners Chorus In Nicosia - smash the phone in a fit of frenzy Just miss Maria Walk over, kiss her, get married Wednesday Chorus Leave me bathing, gently........... Leave me bathing, gently………. Why don’t you leave me bathing gently this evening……? Chorus Oh-ho-may-he, oh-ho-may-he (Yellow rumpled dufflecoat) I KNOW

Empty Stair 03:07
Pride of many long, drawn nights Waiting, tired Praying she’ll be here around half-nine I look on an empty stair - I look on an empty stair Tried to make the time go wild Killing time An inhumane way to grind it down I look on an empty stair - I look on an empty stair Gust of a summer’s tail end raps the window sill Dust from a waiter’s hairstyle floats on the whisky spill Plans and women all get laid A long way from my grasp What is now? You may well ask...... Cried a silent banshee cry A look-alike Walks in the hallway – I don’t know why I look on an empty stair - I look on an empty stair Stride away from candlelight Feeling fine All that I feel isn’t fly-by-night I look on an empty stair - I look on an empty stair Gust of a summer’s tail end raps the window sill Dust from a waiter’s hairstyle floats on the whisky spill I look on an empty stair I look on an empty stair……………
