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
