Flying like a Brick!
Down on my luck
I have got absolutely nowt
But my Universal Credit
will help me out
By tomorrow I’ll be a benefit millionaire
that’s what it’s all about without a care!
The Day my UC comes in my account
It’ll re-float my sinking boat
Well I’m not stupid
I’m not even thick
Swimming in lumpy gravy
I’m flying like a brick!
I’ve got a Trout mask replica
Like Captain Beefheart!

Still flows the river, on the ebbing tide
I’ve watched those ships come and go
since I was a child
Still flows the river. Each and every day
I’ve watched those ships on the river
Coasters and tankers, waved them on their way
The River flows out to the estuary
Red and green buoys keep the channel safe
Seagulls follow the leaving ships
For flotsam and jetsam in their propeller wake
At a rate of knots they pass the Mersey bar
Then it’s out on to the Irish Sea
