  • I get camping eyes in the final hour
    Last minute shoppers picking cauliflower
    The fuss they make, you'd swear they were buying a car
    They always moan, moan it's not so cheap
    Cheaper still, cheaper still down the street
    Lose my rag and tell them take your bag and shop down there
    Closing down, they're closing down another road
    One way, system steals the show
    Mac the knife swigs a can and sings the day away

    [Chorus]
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest

    The flower man sits down in the street
    Surrounded by, the stock he bought back last week
    Bring back the ladies wearing lipstick on their teeth
    Make up, we make up a crappy joke
    Sit back, relax and have a smoke
    Mac the knife swigs a can and sings the day away

    [Chorus: x2]
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest

    I get camping eyes in the final hour
    Last minute shoppers picking cauliflower
    Mac the knife swigs a can and sings the day away

    [Chorus: x2]
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest
    There's more life, more life, more life in a tramp's vest Writer/s: Kelly Jones, Richard Mark Jones, Stuart Cable
