Never Trust a Man (With Egg on His Face)

Album: Dirk Wears White Sox (1979)
  • A man and a woman walking down the street
    With a son and a daughter it was oh so sweet
    When Mummy turned to Daddy and she said: "My dear
    Write out your will the end is near"
    Then she pulled out the gun
    I saw the sparks
    Messed up the suit that he'd bought from Marks
    Because

    She'd heard the voices from Outer Space
    She'd heard the voices from Outer Space
    She'd heard the voices from Outer Space
    Saying "Never trust a man with egg on his face"
    Three months later Mrs be stands
    A smile on her face, blood on her hands
    The kiddies got scared and have run home to bed
    The headlines in the papers said that
    She was the victim of an awful plan
    Announced through the mouthpiece of a little green man
    She'd heard the voices from Outer Space
    Saying "Never trust a man with egg on his face"
    Never trust a man with egg on his face

    La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La
    La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La
    La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La, La-La.
