The trials of a trolley trundler
Stringy muscle, tribulation in sun or thunder
I’ve looked for love along my hook-end rope
As I rein and steer my steely charges, I look for love
Don’t mind my staring, take it as a compliment
A rather sallow fellow, dead to the world, yes I’ll admit
A rather sallow fellow. so crazed that countenance

Yes but I can stand it, besides who decides but me
And I’ve a need to be pre-loved
On a bed of dirty concrete pillar
Come on...

We would pass flippant quips, till you got bored and almost serious
Sod the entree and the mains, melt into your just deserts
Besides, who decides but me
And I’ve a need to be pre-loved
On a dented bonnet sanguine fearful
Come on...

Hang onto your hair, you’ll look so much better off I swear
Head shoulders knees and toes, everything goes, oh everything goes
So put on any old bit of curtain
Salve your head and heart from hurting
Now be off with you...

But which haircut will suit you
Paint or wallpaper your tomb
Will hope in time outgrow these shoes
And will she stop harassing you
Will life improve quite soon
And is that it? Love for the likes of you
