Slip the clutch in the bull nose truck
I'm heading for the boat
Well I never said goodbye to the woman this time
And I left her a note
Well I'm up three steps in heaven
Well on the highway to hell
And I know it'll be a while
Before I say goodbye
'Cause I know you're looking well

It was just my luck to be given a truck 
With an eeget of a load 
And a vice grapes and hammer and adjustable spanner and a roarin' V8 STO
The tachograph was turning black as I passed the London Eye
With one eye on the road and the other on the phone
Took a selfie passing by

All chains and cranes up roads and lanes
And slurry and money by the tonne
Blowing the airhorn loud going through the towns
And starting her on the run
Hauling wood and grum up this double-drive top
As the road was rubbing the flaps
Well there was a good laugh 'till I broke a half shaft
And busted the gearbox

Fifty toone plus and forty foot behind
Twenty-four-seven on the O 19
And baby I'm coming back to you

Oh slip the clutch in the bull nose truck
I'm heading for the boat
Well I never said goodbye to the woman this time
And I left her a note
Well I'm up three steps in heaven well on the highway to hell
And I know it'll be a while before I say goodbye
'Cause I know you're looking well

Slap some grease on the fifth-wheel base
And legs and pipes and lights
Go under the Liffey in Dublin City
Like New York City at night
Hauling for the council with airbags
Bouncing and tipping ramp still up
Had to tip the load while still on the go
'Cause I hadn't got time to stop

Hauling meal and grain on boats and trains
And oil and fags and drink
And driving like hell until the self propel
And hope that she didn't sink
If your luck runs out get home on the bounce
And get super Hampton Boots
Buy a loaf and a V8 coat and twenty lamps for the roof

Fifty toone plus and forty foot behind
Twenty four seven on the O 19
And baby I'm coming back to you

Oh slip the clutch in the bull nose truck
I'm heading for the boat
Well I never said goodbye to the woman this time
And I left her a note
Well I'm up three steps in heaven well on the highway to hell
And I know it'll be a while before I say goodbye
'Cause I know you're looking well

Doing the tonne while I'm down the M1
When the limiter fuse did melt
When the woman rang and said sorry tang
But you know I met someone else
With two chrome stacks roarin' up the back
On the bang flat out in top

My only fear in an understeer
Would I get her stopped at the dock
Rojo honey got the hammer to the floor
And if that's your twenty that's a big ten four
But baby I'm still coming back to you

Oh slip the clutch in the bull nose truck
I'm heading for the boat
Well I never said goodbye to the woman this time
And I left her a note
Well I'm up three steps in heaven well on the highway to hell
And I know it'll be a while before I say goodbye
'Cause I know you're looking well
