There's such a lot of good ways to be bad
And so many bad ways to be good;
Haven't paid my rent yet --
I tell them Sorry, but I haven't got the money anymore.
Just for Today I thought I'd leave Home alone,
Hold hands with Day --
And if I'm so bad, why don't they take me away?
Just like what You hear
With a Shell pressed to your Ear,
That's the Sea in the Trees in the Morning:
'Hello the Universal!'
'Good morning Steve, Well you won't believe me today.'
Working doesn't seem to be the Perfect Thing for me,
So I'll continue to play.
And if I'm so bad, Why don't they take me away?
A hippy-trippy name dropper came through my door,
'I just bumped into Mick -- he told me you know where to score?'
'No, not me friend. I mind my Own and my own minds Me.'
Well my Love is at the Foot of your Hand --
Come What May:
But if June comes first, Please won't you take me Away?
