skywest_and_crooked

Sky west and crooked
Twisted and as strange as fuck
Outside the bookies
window shopping for a change of luck
With love in our hearts
we've got it in spades

Sky west and crooked
you could have been the talk of the the town
But the whole place stayed speechless
your upbringing brought you down
With love in our hearts
we've got it in spades

If we club together
with all the diamonds we've saved
We could look to our hearts and say
we've got it in spades

Sky west and crooked
so your whole life has been a catastrophy
But don't kill yourself stupid
this ain't the dead poets' society
And with love in our hearts
we've got it in spades

If we club together
with all the diamonds we've saved
We could look to our hearts and say
we've got it in spades

I have lived almost 50 years
and I've seen life as it is
pain, misery, hunger, cruelty beyond belief
I've heard singing from the taverns
and the moans from the bundles of filth on the streets
I've been a soldier and seen my comrades fall in gunfire
or die more slowly under the lash in Africa
I've held them in my arms at the final moment
These we're men who saw life as it is
yet they died dispairing
no glory no gallant last words
Only there eyes filled with confusion wimpering questioning why?
I do not think they asked why they we're dying
but why they had ever lived

Final spoken word section read by Ian Dury and taken from Man Of La Mancha in some form (the film version differs a bit)
