My fine-looking suit is really made out of sack


I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my house faced east and the east was facing south

Now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

Substitute me for him 
Substitute my coke for gin
Substitute you for my mum
At least I'll get my washing done
