A tenner in my pocket but what's it for
You're only going to do what you did before
You gotta cheap smile you got it from the government
You've gotta go to work it feels just like a punishment

Ain't got a job I'm outta my head
I think I'll spend the day in bed
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway

A tenner in my pocket but what's it for
You're only going to do what you did before
I wanna have a fag I need some Marijuana
Yeah a David Bowie song that day by the river

Ain't got a job I'm outta my head
I think I'll spend the day in bed
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway

A tenner in my pocket but what's it for
You're only going to do what you did before
The telephones ringing there's someone at the door
Yeah I've gotta write a letter I feel it in the weather

Ain't got a job I'm outta my head
I think I'll spend the day in bed
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway
Otis Redding on the dock of the bay
I'll spend the tenner on a takeaway
