Operation

Well what do you know?
I lived to see another day
The ducks flew South
The cold is here to stay
I ain’t got no bags
I ain’t got no purse
Situation’s bad
But I seen worse

It’s like an Operation
It’s like surgery
Gotta be careful              
Try not to worry

I got a bone here
I got a bone there
I can’t string them together
No sense anywhere
I’m trying to avoid the shocks
Just make it out of here alive
The persistence of the clocks
Sees right through my jive

It’s like an Operation…..

Every day
I’m just trying to hang in
One day it’s caviar
The next day: rubbish bin

I think I’ll try a light touch
Maybe learn how to pray
Put some money in the bank
The grey horse all the way
I’ll put some money to win
I’ll put some money to show
And if I go bust
No one will ever know

It’s like an Operation
It’s like surgery
Gotta be careful
Try not to worry
