I was blown out, shown the door,
walked across an empty floor.
I was thrown out for the sin
of talking back to a man in black
who said ‘Hey son, cut the crap,
around here you gotta be
quids in’.

I got a job, a Bex Bissell,
a new car and a whistle,
but then again to my surprise:

I was blown out, shown the door,
walked across an empty floor.
Would I lie to you?
Quids in.
