Jim’s looking on the positive side with the keywords for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.
And if you’re looking for some good old raucous fun, there were none better than The Faces.
So I cycled ‘cross the neighbourhood
Was invited by a skinny girl
Into her high class world
Laid my coat across the kosher chairs
Made my way across the crowded room
I had nothing to loseMy reception wasn’t very keen
So turning on a friendly grin
Stood on the table with my glass of gin
And came straight to the pointI was glad to come
I’ll be sad to go
So while I’m here
I’ll have me a real good timeDancing madly round the room, yeah
Singing loudly and sorta’ out of tune
Was escorted by a friendly slag
‘Round the bedroom and back
Wandered across to the door
Missed my step and I fell on the floor.
Said one word and was asked to leave
Kinda’ wish I was dead.
The skinny girl made it clear
That she only came here for the beer
The vicar simply reeked of gin
On my way home I happened to fall off my bicycle
I was glad to come, but I was also glad to get home
