a_prince_in_a_pauper_s_grave

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 churchyard where the nervous get wrecked
And turn off your wireless
for two minutes 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
Volkswagon yellow and gold

Johnny drinks Johnny drinks
Johnny drinks Johnny Walker
cockles his muscles alive alive 'o
smashes his bottle of unholy water
and it's go Johnny go, go, go

Back to the churchyard
where day out 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
