A Prince in a Pauper's Grave
- 61 Views
In a bar Johnny drinks Johnny drinks Johnnie Walker Till he runs up a bill he can't pay He's drinking to the memory Of a prince in a pauper's grave And it's go Johnny go Where the bruises don't show In the church yard where the nervous get wrecked And turn off your wireless For two minutes of silence Cough up and pay your respects And go to the park Where vicars and tarts Prey for their tormented souls By the American graffiti From Elephant and Castle In Ford Capri Orange And Volkswagen yellow and gold Johnny drinks, Johnny drinks, Johnny drinks Johnnie Walker Till he runs up a bill The Pope couldn't pay Cockles his muscles alive alive 'o Smashes his bottles of unholy water And it's go Johnny, go Johnny go, go, go Back to the churchyard Where day out and day in Those original sinners Are religiously praying And where there was muck There's a brass band that's playing Playing to the memory Of a prince in a pauper's grave
