I met a Mayfair lady
down on Assignation Way.
Between the throes, her powdered nose
when she began to say.

“There’s nothing I like better
than a letter from a friend.
The kind of lies that tell me why
our friendship had to end”.

“Well, It really hit the spot
and you can tell it means a lot
that he’d find the time to fire the
bride when things got way too hot”.

Cos it ain’t working
and I don’t mind.

Then I found myself beside myself
in Jimmy’s Bar & Grill.
The cannibal played ‘Somethin’ Else’
with grace and better still

the waitress there was pale and fair
her eyes a greedy stare.
She took me home and telephoned
her favourite underwear.

Well, I couldn’t think, too much to drink
another kitchen sink.
But I stayed a while, we all know why
‘til morning tipped the wink.

But it ain’t working
No it ain’t working
and I don’t mind.

The streets were cold, the night was old.
The moon & stars had drowned.
My overcoat was full of stones
a dead man’s hand-me-down.

I saw a witch upon a bridge
she said “You look like Hell”.
I told her “Thanks, I needed that.
I love you too as well”.

She came on strong until the cops
turned up and told her “No,
we can’t vouch for him or where he’s been.
His missus wants him home”.

Though it ain’t working.
No it ain’t working
and I don’t mind.

...and that, darling, is what really happened.
