Shakespear's Sister — Excuse Me John lyrics

You could have been a docker
You had it all
Feather cut and muscles
I hear you're a banker these days
Well we took New York
And wrapped it up in a silver shawl
Yeah yeah yeah
You were always kicking in the exit door
While I was saving pennies
For the bus back home
Coming down in the afternoon
Excuse me John
What are you on
Can you spare a bit for me
To carry on
Through today, 'til tonight
cause tomorrow's out of sight
Out of reach
Out of it, again
You carried off a billboard
Twenty foot by ten
And put it in your bedroom
Now you can't get in
So please wash your hands
As you leave this century
Excuse me John
What are you on
Can you spare a bit for me
To carry on
Through today, 'til tonight
cause tomorrow's out of sight
Out of reach
Out of it, again
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
You know you want it
You know you need it
You know I need it too
Excuse me John
What are you on
Can you spare a bit for me
To carry on
Through today, 'til tonight
cause tomorrow's out of sight
Out of reach
Out of it, again
