Standing in the dock at Southampton
Trying to get to Holland or France
The man in the mac said you've got to go back
They didn't even give us a chance

Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Finally made the train into Paris
Honeymooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown called to say
You can make it okay
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain

Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said, what're you doing in bed
I said we're only trying to get us some peace

Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Saving up your money for a rainy day
Giving all your clothes to charity
Last night the wife said
Oh boy, when you're dead  
You don't take nothing with you but your soul

Be in a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
All the newspapers said she's gone to his head
You know they look just like two Gurus in a drag

Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Caught the early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press said we wish you success
It's good to have the both of you back

Christ! You know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

You know the way things are going
They're going to crucify me
You know the way things are going
They're going to crucify me
