I apologize, 
Seem to have arrived, 
On what items in my bag from your house. 
There's cutlery, 
A tablecloth, some Hennessy, 
And a book on Presidents deceased. 
I'll have them fed-exed to you, 
It was a strange thing to do, 
I hope we can still be friends. 
Ah, it was not me, 
But someone else, you see, 
Twisting the steering reins. 

Put a penny in the slot and make an 
Artificial li-ii-iight shine, 
Leave go-ooo. Mark old and line. 

I don't give advise, 
But be wise and think twice, 
Before getting involved in a game. 
Where the minority 
Face the majority, 
Who are faceless and born without names. 
Was it knock synch when 
We came across three men, 
They had church candles wrapped in newspaper. 
I bought two from them, 
And I'll lit one for you, 
I hope the message made it's way down the wire. 

Put a penny in the slot and make an 
Artificial li-ii-iight shine, 
Leave go-ooo. Mark old and line. 

The soul of a dog, 
He's alive and not gone 
To the farm like the others said. 
A Rhodesian richback, 
Off the beaten track, 
In a furniture shop down on the quays. 
For the loneliness you foster, 
I suggest Paul Auster, 
A book called Timbuktu. 

Put a penny in the slot and watch the 
Drunken sailor boy dance. 
She will not let you be 
Her lov-ver. 
She goes out looking for 
The taxi. 
Her phone is ringing straight to 
Message-minder. 
Send out a battalion to 
Find her. 

Put a penny in the slot and count the 
Swans through a te-elescope. 
I can't help from cryin' 
I wish you were mine. 

When I was seventeen, 
I followed my dream, 
Up into a high-rise block. 
The adventures of Augie March, 
By Saul Bel-low, 
Was all I had for company. 
At night time I'd lie 
In Beckingham pike, 
With tears like flashbulbs. 
And recall my treasure- 
Searching days, 
In the rock pools as a kid. 

To the remains of 
The cherub plains, 
Or around the bonfire in Nailors? cove. 
Good company and grief 
Sit like a doc leaf, 
Sits beside a singing nett-le. 

Put a penny in the slot and make an 
Artificial li-ii-iight shi-iine, 
Leave go-ooo. My golden arm
