Six Feet From A Rat

by Crab Cakes




I'm buzzing, I'm buzzing, I'm buzzing
Lift goes up, I'm buzzing
Lift goes down, I'm buzzing
Lift goes up, I'm buzzing
Lift goes down, I'm buzzing

I'm just a twat in a council flat
Never more than six feet from a rat
Spying on the neighbours
Willing to do favours
Cup of sugar for a packet of Quavers
In the lift, having a sniff
On the way down, trying to avoid the whiff
I'm not rich, I'm not poor, I'm not smart that's for sure
I see what I say and I say what I see
I like Catchphrase

I'm just a twat in a council flat
Never more than six feet from a rat
I'm just a twat in a council flat
Never more than six feet from a rat

Out the backdoor, communal garden
Caretaker repping the borough of Camden
Dodgey mix of chavs and old ladies
Wanna be rude boys, trying to look shadey
I drift through, I'm not there
Don't do enough for them to care
Fag butts, piles of bin bags
Local busy body having a chin wag
She clocks me and I give her the knod
Just enough to keep me on my todd
Head down, no frown
I ain't a face in this town

I'm just a twat in a council flat
Never more than six feet from a rat
I'm buzzing, absolutely buzzing
I'm buzzing, absolutely buzzing

I see what I say and I say what I see
It might have happened to them
It might have happened to me
But one thing that you know for sure
Is I'm a next door, cut price, troubadour
I'm a low rent, rainy day, Samuel Peeps
Trying to make the best of life on the cheap

Lift goes up
I do what I do
Lift goes down
I see what I say
Lift goes up
I do what I do
Lift goes down
I say what I see
I do what I do, I'm buzzing

I'm just a twat in a council flat
Never more than six feet from a rat
I do what I do
I see what I say
I do what I do
I say what I see
I like Catchphrase
