    Says Red Molly, to James, "Well that's a fine motorbike.
    A girl could feel special on any such like."
    Says James, to Red Molly, "My hat's off to you.
    It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952.
    And I've seen you on the corners and cafes, it seems.

    Vultures pecking the eyes out of his head

    Nobody loves me here

    They were burningbabies, burning flags

    I'm so tired of working everyday
    Now the weekend's come I'm gonna throw my troubles away
    If you've got the cab fare mister you'll do alright.

    Meet me at the station don't be late
