  • Well I was chasing down flies and shooting up women
    Trying to get the whole thing straight in my head
    Looking for a girl who'd come with me swimming
    And come and play tunes at the end of my bed, oh

    And all the hard men were drinking down petrol
    Bamming up the girls when in came the law
    Heading for the door and getting tongue tied
    When they asked me what exactly I saw

    So I'll get some Monte Cristos
    And we can all go see the band
    Well, I may not be a looker, yeah
    But I'll help you any way I can

    Well, I was back at my room, I was making me nervous
    Watching TV and picking my feet
    Wishing I was pretty and burning my shoes
    And wishing for once I'd kept the receipt

    I called myself and wondered out loud
    Tried to get the whole thing straight in my head
    I left the tape running and played it back twice
    But I couldn't make sense of what I had said

    So I'll get some Monte Cristose
    And we can all go see the band
    Well I may not be a looker, yeah
    But I'll help you any way I can

    Well it may not make you handsome
    And it may not even make you feel alive
    You may not have the ransom
    But you can always count on this
    It's him and them and she and me
    And sick and muddy, everybody

    So I'll get some Monte Cristose
    And we can all go see the band
    Well I may not be a looker, yeah
    But I'll help you any way I can

    So you can bring your wasters banjo
    Bring your sister and her friend Diane
    Well I may not have a big boys pistol
    But I'll help them any way I can

    And you can call me Cinderella
    You can call me your best man
    Well you may be a right old queen
    But I'll help you any way I can, well alright
