Sittin', drinkin', sinkin', drinkin' Wonderin' what I'd do when I'm through tonight Smokin', mopin', maybe just hopin' Some little girl will pass on by Don't wanna be alone but I love my girl at home I remember what she said (what she said) She said, "my, my, my, don't tell lies, Keep fidelity in your head My my my, don't tell lies, When you're done you should go to bed Don't say hi, like a spider to a fly Jump right ahead and you're dead"
Sit up, fed up, low down, go round Down to the bar at the place I'm at Sittin', drinkin', superficially thinkin' About the rinsed-out blonde on my left But then I said "hi" like a spider to a fly Rememberin' what my little girl said
She was common, flirty, she looked about thirty I would have run away but I was on my own She told me later she's a machine operator She said she liked the way I held the microphone Then I said "hi" like a spider to a fly Jump right ahead in my web

Orangebeaker from Edinburgh, ScotlandThis song is only available on the US version of Out Of Our Heads, which is much better than the UK version btw.
Orangebeaker from Edinburgh, ScotlandThis was apparently a favourite of Peter Sutcliffe, the man who went on to become the Yorkshire Ripper. Apparently he used to put it on the jukebox all the time when he was out drinking, and often played it twice in a row. It's quite spooky when you look at the lyrics.
Mike from Berkeley, CaThis is a great blues song and it's been copied by many other artists; however there's something very unique they do with the guitars along with the Jimmy Reed type rhythm and clever harmonica. With the E7 chords they add this little chord part:
