It was supposed to be so easy

Just take back the DVD, withdraw that extra money
Tell mum I wouldn't be back for tea, then grab my savings and hurry
So first to get the film back in time, to avoid that big fine
I had to do a fast hill climb, but a faster decline
But I flew a bit quick, arms like a lunatic
Had to stop for a few ticks, I started feelin' sick
Got to the video shop in a state, but chuffed it wouldn't be late
Only when he flicked open the case, I'd left the disc at my place

Today I've achieved absolutely nought
In just bein' out of the house, I've lost out
If I wanted to end up with more now
I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

So I failed on the DVD, but I still had to get the money
Tell mum I couldn't make tea, get the savin' and then hurry
Rushin' to the cash machine, still a bit mashed and lean
Then ofcourse a mandatory car, drives by and splashes me
Get there the cues outrageous, ladies takin' ages
My rage is blowin' gauges, how longs it take to validate your wages?
At last my turn comes, press the fifty squid button
Insufficient funds

Today I've achieved absolutely nought
In just bein' out of the house, I've lost out
If I wanted to end up with more now
I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

So I failed on the DVD, couldn't withdraw any money
But I still had to call mum, get the savings and then hurry
So to call my mum so that, I could tell her I can't go and that
At least I remembered my phone man, I didn't know her number off hand
Where's my phone have I got it, oh this is a crock of shit
I lost the fuckin' thing, oh here it is in my pocket
But the batteries nearly flat, gotta call quick snap
Aww shit, the battery is flat

Today I've achieved absolutely nought
In just bein' out of the house, I've lost out
If I wanted to end up with more now
I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

So I've failed on the DVD, couldn't withdraw any money
Or call mum about tea, I'll have to get the savings and hurry
But where was the money?, I knew I'd left it on the
Side, next to the telly, this is not even funny
I left it in the livin' room, ready to pick up as soon
As I passed through, on the way out to the rendezvous
So the shoe box full of money, just disappearing from me
Is not what I call funny, a grand don't come for free

Today I've achieved absolutely nought
In just bein' out of the house, I've lost out
If I wanted to end up with more now
I should've just stayed in bed, like I know how

Oi, soaked to the bone in my jeans, do you want me to stop?
I imagine my mums weaping right now
And the thousand pounds you swore, that I left on the table this morn
Has simply disappeared right before my eyes, his eyes and yours
And I'm a thousand pounds poorer
A hundred thousand pennies, no more
A thousandth of a million squid, or two monkeys or a whole fifty scores
Gone withdrawn from my life, the money is no more for sure

It was supposed to be easy
