  • On a bright and winter’s day
    Turned his coat in the morning

    Martin Decent spoke out loud, spoke out loud,
    Told his tale to the listening cloud
    Then he turned his coat in the morning

    Ate his greens and his rhubard raw
    Chewed his food with a vigorous jaw
    Wrote down he all he heard and saw

    Martin Decent sang along, sang along, sang along
    Leant his voice to the children’s song
    Then he turned his coat in the morning

    Told a few little lily-white lies
    Hid the truth behind his eyes
    Nobody knew he was in disguise

    Martin Decent danced a lot, danced a lot, danced a lot
    Struck the pose for a photograph
    Then he turned his coat in the morning

    Martin Decent went back home, went back home, went back home
    Slept like a log in a bed of his own
    Then he turned his coat in the morning

    Yes he did!
    Hey! FUck him! Roll him in manure!
