  • Oh, you've been waiting for a while
    Tell me about the Aldershot Municipal Gardens
    Do you think sometimes on weekends
    When it gets light you could swim there?
    Well maybe if the water was clear

    I've been taking some time to myself
    I've been thinking a lot
    But mainly outside of the box
    I really hope that my business speak worked
    And I get the job
    'Cause I really need one

    Yeah, I've been waiting in a dark suit for awhile
    Down there in Aldershot, Camberley or Staines
    I think
    I've been packing lunches
    Deep in boxes
    I want to be a lawyer
    Or someone who hunts foxes
    And I think maybe in a while
    I could become a doctor
    The ambulances don't run anymore
    But it's okay
    You can get an Uber there for four pounds fifty-five
    And if you can't afford that
    Well it only really hurts when it rains
    So, other items, probably doesn't matter a lot
    I've been thinking a little bit
    About that sort of thing
    And if you could hopefully agree
    I could begin to drag myself free

    So, oh, you've been hoping a lot
    Working on your poses
    And living on a yacht
    In your dreams
    I know in Camberley, or Aldershot, in Staines
    They're in hundreds, underneath municipal bridges
    And on the weekends he goes out for a bit
    To The Slug And Lettuce or Wetherspoons or that shit
    There's no pub in this town anymore
    But if you want to do drugs
    You could always go to London

    Oh, tend to your flowers for awhile
    Everything's growing so nicely
    July's coming along
    I hope that when the winter's finally here
    You can sit in your front room
    And laugh at your neighbors

    Oh, you're a tiny bit old for this
    Don't you think, it's gonna to get better
    Before too long, or if it doesn't I guess
    You'll be six feet under
    Wearing your nicest Writer/s: Alex Rice, Alexandra Greenwood, Benjamin Mack, Henry Young, Oli Dewdney, Rob Knaggs
