lyrics

TIME WAITS FOR NORMAN

Norman Jones is late for church because his neighbours left him in the lurch, again
Stops off at the corner shop to steal a bottle of their fizzy pop, and then
How are you and how are yours and have you heard the news?
They say that Maypole Mews is coming down

Jackdaws shitting on his car, the children’s footprints in the sticky tar, amen
Someone’s got their radio tuned in to hear the nation’s favourite show, and then
How are you and how are yours and have you seen the time?
They say that there’s no crime this side of town

What a life, what a waste, all alone with his chicken paste

It’s an ordinary day, all the bins are in the way
There’s no reason we should stay here but we do

Pieces of a life so full of joy
A place for every girl and every boy
Your very own desk at the council
Waiting for you ’til you’re 62
A name on the crumbling twitten wall
A photo of your mum hanging in the hall
The paperbacks piled on the stairs
That you’ll never read, that you’ll never need

How are you and how are yours and where did it all go?
And what is there to show except growing old?

What a life, what a waste, all alone with his chicken paste

It’s an ordinary day, all the bins are in the way
There’s no reason we should stay here but we do
